Install linux application to container from .run


I’m new to docker looking to run a jenkins server from a container to run adhoc jobs. Part of the pipeline will involve 2 pieces of software which are not available from the usual apt-get install my_software. How can I install these software packages to the container? I will also need to configure them, but I’ll cross that bridge when I can actually install them and see that they have been installed successfully!

I’ve read though the documentation and of course tried googling the issue, but I’ve not found anything that seems to help.


Hello benallenarm,

If those softwares are jenkins plugin, you will just install them on the fly on your jenkins dashboard after a docker run jenkins command.

Best Regards,
