Has anyone played with RHEL 8 beta 1 to be precisely Podman and Buildah the Docker replacements from Redhat?

Maybe if I have some spare time this weekend I'll give it a go.

    I had no time last weekend to play with the RHEL 8 Beta. Maybe next weekend! Please share your experiences and thoughts.

    I also running as root on my ClearOS servers. A very bad habit. :)

    I can `podman container start {{ID}}` as root and attach.

    What was the network set up you put in place for the container networking?


    I do have a bad habit of running as root, since my day job is as a sysadmin, I'm pretty much root across dozens of boxes all day :)
    Don't follow my bad practices, though, you don't have to run the containers as root. Not sure the exact problem you're hitting, but it should be solvable.

    I used the standard 10.88.0.1 network it sets up. I do specify the ip address of the container at run time. Once thing I noticed, if you don't shut them down cleanly, you can end up needing to manually delete the file that hold the ip on the network under /var/lib/cni/networks/podman/

    Good Day.

    I have started using podman on my test machine = Red Hat Enterprise Linux release 8.0 Beta (Ootpa)

    At this point I am digging into networking for the containers.

    I pulled a few images and did use buildah to create as well.

    Still early for me.

    What are your plans for the containers?

    They are also available in RHEL/CENTOS 7.
    I've built really cool stuff using them in the last couple of weeks.
    I had to mark the repo private once management agreed to continuing development of it in customer environments, but basically a monitor and manage server. Salt, rundeck, pmm, elk (3 containers), and it's apm add-on. And reference implications of the client side, Apache, rsyslog, php-fpm, and the apm agent.
