32bit Docker engine doesn't have daemon command


(Ismails) #1

Steps to reproduce

  1. Make sure deps are satisfied as per https://docs.docker.com/engine/installation/binaries/ (I think I did this correctly but I may be mistaken)
  2. wget https://get.docker.com/builds/Linux/i386/docker-latest
  3. sudo ./docker-latest daemon

Result

docker: 'daemon' is not a docker command.
See 'docker --help'.

Important note

I am doing this on a lubuntu laptop (latest lubuntu version), 32bit, with rubbish specs (eg 1Gb memory, centrino processor). I was hoping to get docker up and running as it is used by an open source project I want to be able to contribute to, but so far nothing has worked.

"Docker requires a 64-bit installation regardless of your Ubuntu version. "

OK. Then maybe the 32bit binaries should be removed, if they aren’t meant
to work.


(Dvohra) #4

Those 32 bit binaries are for Windows, not Linux (Ubuntu).

Then I have no idea how they ran on lubuntu… In any case, thanks for your
time. I don’t see it being possible for me to use docker on my laptop,
which is a shame, but there are other oss projects besides the one I wanted
to contribute to that don’t require docker to run which I can contribute
to. Thanks again.

Docker may be installed on Ubuntu on Amazon EC2.
