Oracle Linux Image for Docker

Everyone is talking about Docker these days, Oracle also took the notice and recently make Oracle Linux 6 and 7 images available for Docker.

Note: Oracle Linux is rebuild of RHEL same as Centos or Scientific Linux. ;)

Lets try to containerize the oracle linux OL7

1. Assuming Docker is already installed on your favorite Linux distro

2. Download the Oracle Linux image

3. Uncompress it , this will give oraclelinux-7.0.tar in the current directory
$ unxz oraclelinux-7.0.tar.xz

4. Load the image to your local Docker repository.
# docker load -i unxz oraclelinux-7.0.tar

5. check local image repo

# docker images

REPOSITORY           TAG                 IMAGE ID            CREATED             VIRTUAL SIZE
oraclelinux          7.0                 5f1be1559ccf        3 weeks ago         265.2 MB
askhan/salt-minion   v1                  9b40143974c1        9 weeks ago         294.6 MB

6. Finally run container based on OL7 image
# docker run --rm -it --name oracle7 oraclelinux:7.0 bash

7. Now inside the container
[root@fcc43a277822 /]# cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.0 (Maipo)

Hey what this is RHEL...come on make your own Linux distro to better serve the community. (Oracle)
