Need help compiling Docker on a 32 bit system

build

(Robert Dodier) #1

Hi, I am interested in running Docker on my laptop. I am working with Ubuntu 14.04. uname -a reports:

Linux freekbox 3.13.0-44-generic #73-Ubuntu SMP Tue Dec 16 00:23:46 UTC 2014 i686 i686 i686 GNU/Linux

This is a 32 bit system, and it appears that Docker binaries, either as debs or tarballs, are only available for 64 bit systems, right?

So I am wondering how one can compile Docker from source code. I found a blog post on this topic (http://oyvindsk.com/writing/docker-build-from-source), but the author assumes that one already has Docker installed, and then uses the installed Docker to compile a new one.

Is there a way to compile Docker from source code on a 32 bit system? I wasn’t able to find an answer, perhaps if someone knows they can share that information.

The larger problem I am trying to solve is to install and run the Maxima-Jupyter package mentioned here: https://gitlab.com/alessandro.dibella/docker/jupyter-maxima

All the best, and thanks in advance.
