@fribbledom debootstrap is a bash script, if that makes any difference.
Yeah, supporting Debian should be fairly straight forward!
@fribbledom What did you use for containers?
@fribbledom Good stuff.
Personally I learned via podman and many LWN articles, but seeing a working concept built up from nothing in under 90 minutes still left me impressed!
@fribbledom interested to understand the use case(s) for that versus Docker.
Doesn't require a daemon to run, doesn't require you to pre-build images. Re-uses the same network interface, lets you use arbitrary folders as root and persists data in it. Let's Xwindow apps easily connect to your running display server.
I use it to build & test new projects & distros I want to check out, preventing polluting my filesystem and giving me (minimal, but fairly effective for stupid mistakes & simple attacks) system isolation.
Is running a daemon and prebuilding an image an issue? Building a Docker container from an existing directory is trivial, in my experience.
Sounds like an interesting evolution, although it's an idea that's been around for decades to be fair.
@fribbledom nice! I hadn't realised it was that easy.
I'll give it a try! (Does it use Viper? ... just kidding)
