Fedora docker image missing sudo
Last modified: 2016-02-18 10:20:01 EST
(note: filed against docker, but meant to file against the official Fedora docker image. Don't know what the component is for that.)
Description of problem:
To compile-test software, it is convenient to do
docker run -v /home/avi/software:/home/avi/software -w /home/avi/software -i -t -v /etc/passwd:/etc/passwd -t /etc/sudoers:/etc/sudoers -u avi fedora:rawhide /bin/bash
$ sudo dnf install toolchain
$ make (or whatever)
But I can't do that now because sudo is not installed. I can either run everything as root (and be left with root-owned files in my home directory), or us myself (but not be able to be root in my container).
I could have my own image, but sudo seems useful enough to be in the official image.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. docker run -i -t -v /etc/passwd:/etc/passwd -u $(id -un) fedora:rawhide sudo echo yes
exec: "sudo": executable file not found in $PATH
I don't believe most people use sudo in a docker container. I don't believe it should be in the base image. We are trying to make the base image smaller, not adding to it.
You need to create a layered image.
