Ubuntu Docker Run

  1. The Docker details for the various versions of CentOS. Step 8 − On Ubuntu box, run the command. Sudo docker pull centos:latest The download of the Docker component starts and the CentOS Docker is downloaded. The name of the Docker image is centos:latest, which means that we have the latest Docker image for CentOS.
  2. Run a Docker Container in Ubuntu. In order to create and run a Docker container, first you need to run a command into a downloaded CentOS image, so a basic command would be to check the distribution version file inside the container using cat command, as shown. $ docker run centos cat /etc/issue 14.

Docker uses the concepts of images and containers. An image is a self-contained package that can be run by Docker. A container is a running image with a certain state. There are several repositories containing pre-built Docker images. Docker Hub is the default repository that you’ll use in this tutorial. For a first example, run the hello. Most current Linux distributions (RHEL, CentOS, Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu 16.04 and higher) use systemd to manage which services start when the system boots. On Debian and Ubuntu, the Docker service is configured to start on boot by default. To automatically start Docker and Containerd on boot for other distros, use the commands below.

The latest stable release of FEniCS is version 2019.1.0, which was released on April 19th 2019.
