Common process to run app in RHEL distro based image and "move" to Ubuntu distro?

Hello there guys,

A quick one, I have to deal with an application running in REHL docker image but by some reason I need to move to Ubuntu base distro image, I ned to test it but since the common base is linux is going to work perhaps some dependencies works different between distros, but my question is is there is a common way to do this or some standard method, and what could be a gotchas in the process?

thanks in advance

PD any chide or help is very welcome!


Hi :slight_smile:

I dont think there is an easy way to do it, but hopefully you have the Dockerfile where you can just take it step-by-step.
If you dont use any distro related commands, like YUM i dont think you will run into so many issues.
