Description Avi Kivity 2016-02-18 09:56:02 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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. docker run -i -t  -v /etc/passwd:/etc/passwd -u $(id -un) fedora:rawhide sudo echo yes

Actual results:
exec: "sudo": executable file not found in $PATH

Expected results:

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.
