I am trying to build a custom distribution that runs docker. I am using kiwi framework to achieve that. Docker installation is done successfully during the build. The problem is that I want to load some docker images during the build process so that the system includes all needed images when it starts. The problem is that the KIWI software uses chroot to run commands like docker load, docker pull. These commands need a running docker daemon. When I try to start the deamon, it always fails. I tried the following things:

running docker through : systemctl start docker failed (systemctl by design will refuse starting a service in chroot jail)

running docker through: /usr/bin/dockerd also fails and generates the below logs

Error starting daemon: Devices cgroup isn't mounted

Is there any technique to start docker daemon in a chroot Jail ?

  • @Biswapriyo no problem I will try to adapt your solution to my case. Thank you in advance – Yassine Fadhlaoui Feb 4 '19 at 20:18

the chroot needs cgroups - you have to ensure the chroot has the correct file systems mounted /proc /dev /sys, which you can either mount again or rbind from host - then you need to mount the cgroups inside the jail (if you have rbinded /sys you might already have them in /sys/fs/cgroup). You can use these scripts to mount cgroups. - then you start docker

Since you can't load kernel modules from a chroot you have to ensure those are mounted beforehand, like overlay for the storage driver and nf_conntrack for networking. Alternatively you can always fallback to the vfs storage driver and disabling iptables...
