LibreElec Docker/containers on an x86 Linux server machine...

  • ...has anyone thought about them?


    Here I don't mean the bloated 120-200MB Debian base, but a Docker with something like a light 5MB Alpine base.


    LibreElec actually recommended Alpine bases in its Docker add-ons write-up (addons for LE, not LE inside a Docker itself), but Alpine seems to have lost traction with Docker. The problem could be Alpine's musl libc which doesn't play nice with existing compilations.


    Alternatively some other container format with a light base should work.

  • It's not a topic that gets much airtime within the team. We trust the linuxserver.io folks to provide sensible containers.

    Ok. But is there a LE Docker x86 with linuxserver.io or elsewhere?

    The link is the Docker add-on I mentioned in my OP.


    But this tells me nothing about building an LE x86 Docker image that I can then install on a x86 Linux server running other Dockers !

  • LE can be built in a Docker container (various flavours of Ubuntu OS inside the container) and an LE install can host Docker containers, but LE cannot itself run in a container and there are no plans to change that. If you need to run a virtual instance of LE there's a vmware OVA that can be imported into workstation/fusion/esxi but that's the only options (no other Hypervisors are supported) and be aware that we have never officially supported the VM image - it's a development tool used for functional testing only. To download it get the URL for the Generic image and change .img.gz to .ova
