I’m trying to install the Kolab groupware in a Docker container based on CentOS 6.5. At first glance, the installation of the official packages seemed to work without problems. But afterwards, when I tried to run the setup script, several errors occurred. After doing some research, I found out, that the setup script tries to use an sql schema file, located in
/usr/share/doc/kolab-webadmin-3.1.5. According to
repoquery -l kolab-webadmin, the sql file is indeed included in the package. It is, however, not installed.
I suspect that this is somehow a “feature” of Docker, which tries to avoid the installation of unnecessary documentation files into the container, but could not find any information about it.
Is there a way to install the missing files through yum?
Here is a minimal example to illustrate the problem: First create a new centos container:
docker run -t -i centos:centos6 /bin/bash
Inside, install the yum-utils package:
yum install -y yum-utils
Afterwards, if you use repoquery to inspect the contents of the yum-utils package
repoquery -l yum-utils
you will notice that the package contains files under /usr/share/doc/yum-utils-1.1.30. This folder, however, does not exist.
yumto install some packages or files.
