Why is docker unsupported for 32bit Linux systems?


(Binujaya) #1

I’m aware that docker is not officially supported yet for 32bit Linux systems.
However it seems to be possible to build it on a 32bit system on our own. (http://mwhiteley.com/linux-containers/2013/08/31/docker-on-i386.html).

I’m wondering why docker has not officially supported it yet. Is there a performance issue when running docker engine on 32bit systems, or maybe some other issue? Is building on a 32bit system on our own not advisable?
