14.1 > System > docker (1.8.2)

Docker is an open-source project to easily create lightweight, portable,
self-sufficient containers from any application. The same container that
a developer builds and tests on a laptop can run at scale, in production,
on VMs, bare metal, OpenStack clusters, public clouds and more.

To use docker as a limited user, add your user to the 'docker' group:

# groupadd -r -g 281 docker
# usermod -a -G docker <your_username>

This will require logging out and back in.

To have the docker daemon start and stop with your host,
add to /etc/rc.d/rc.local:

if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.docker ]; then
/etc/rc.d/rc.docker start

and to /etc/rc.d/rc.local_shutdown (creating it if needed):

if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.docker ]; then
/etc/rc.d/rc.docker stop

If you are interested in enabling cgroup memory resource controll over swap as
well, then append "swapaccount=1" to your kernel's parameters. This is often in
/etc/lilo.conf, on the "append" variable.

NOTE: google-go-lang is only needed at compile time - not needed for runtime.

Docker doesn't support x86, only x86_64

This requires: google-go-lang
