Import Buildroot bzImage


(Emafuma) #1

Hi,
I just wonder if it is possible to import a bzImage built in Buildroot.
I followed Create lightweight Docker containers with Buildroot and everything worked with the example, but in my case my Buildroot generated a bzImage.
I’m quite new to Docker and I’m not even sure if what I’m trying to do is feasible.
I can use the bzImage in VirtualBox but I would like to use it in Docker.
Thanks in advance for any help

generally speaking, a bzImage is a kernel image. Docker isn’t a virtualization solution.

You can use buildroot to generate a / filesystem snapshot, and you could potentially import that, but that’s different than a bzImage.
