If I understand things correctly, CRC (and OKD) uses Fedora CoreOS.
So that might be an alternative here, for something based on CoreOS ?
It would install a whole cluster instead of a container host, though.
Yes this is getting smaller, and will probably be the Red Hat supported
way of running podman/openshift on a MAC or Windows box.
I wanted a LiveCD for a Boot2Podman alternative, not a cloud installer.
So then it was easier with the Minishift (Origin) image as a base...
The default is to use the CentOS 7 image, but it was too old for this.
And the kickstart files are similar enough anyway, between the two ?
I think it should be _theoretically_ possible to use Fedora CoreOS.
But you would have to create that initial Ignition FCC file somewhow:
qemu-img create qcow2 -b fedora-coreos-qemu.qcow2 my-fcos-vm.qcow2
qemu-kvm -m 2048 -cpu host -nographic \
-drive if=virtio,file=my-fcos-vm.qcow2 \
The disk usage would also increase a lot (again), from 366M to 1644M.
Compared to the original 117M (for TCL), that is almost 15 times...
Yes, I want to encourage the Fedora CoreOS guys to shrink their image
size (Drop Moby for example), Not sure what else is causing it to swell.
If you want an immutable container host OS for your public cloud,
I'm sure it's a fine choice. But it's "overkill" just to run podman
Maybe, But if Fedora CoreOS is the going to be a preferred way of
running containers, then we should make it more useful.
The same goes for k8s, in the shape of kubeadm. So I'm using
It has a *quarter* of the memory footprint, while still using crio.
I am not arguing against you, I am just pointing out that we should
Some people argue that k3s is not the same as k8s, in functionality.
And there's still some way to go, to get down to the sizes of
dockerd (for machine) and containerd (for k3s). Currently, half:
So for now, I will "only" do the incremental OS version upgrades
Sounds like a good opportunity for the Fedora community, though ? ;-)
