Minimal Container Linux
Minimal Container Linux (
mcl) is a Linux Host OS designed specifically to
run Containers. Right now it supports the Docker Engine runtime, however it is
possible to support other Container runtimes (and maybe planned).
mcl consists of the following components:
mcl quickly and easily with QEMU:
$ curl -# -L -O $(curl -s https://api.github.com/repos/prologic/minimal-container-linux/releases/latest | grep -E 'browser_download_url.*\.iso' | cut -d '"' -f 4) $ qemu-system-x86_64 -m 512M -boot d -cdrom mcl.iso -device virtio-rng-pci
It is important that you provide a HWRNG to the Guest VM or the VM will boot very slowly as virtual environments have few sources of entropy.
