Using Docker

Some initial tests

I installed Docker on my Macbook, it was quite easy following the directions on the Docker website.

I played around a little and located an SLC docker image. In a fresh terminal:

->boot2docker init
->boot2docker start
->export DOCKER_TLS_VERIFY=1
->export DOCKER_HOST=tcp://192.168.59.103:2376
->export DOCKER_CERT_PATH=/Users/childers/.boot2docker/certs/boot2docker-vm
->docker search slc6

As a test I installed ROOT via yum into the image. The first command here starts an interactive container.

-> docker run -i -t cern/slc6-base:6.5
[[email protected] /]# yum install root.x86_64

Now I have my own SLC6.5 container with ROOT 5.34 installed.

Next I played with trying to run a root script so I made one:

mkdir vlocal
vim vlocal/root_test.C
| root_test.C
#include <string>
#include <iostream>
 
int root_test(void){
   string test = "Hello World";
 
   std::cout << test << "\n";
 
   return 0;
}

Then I wanted my container to mount my local directory and use this file:

-> docker run --volume=$PWD/vlocal:/vcont jtchilders/slc65:root534 root -b -q /vcont/root_test.C
