Possible to run Docker in a Bionic lxc container?


I was thinking of using a lxc container as a test/dev server for easyengine v4.

The install script failed to install Docker on the Bionic container I set up. I realize that running Docker in a container is a bit redundant but I would prefer to not install Docker on the Omnia directly since it is not supported officially(yet??).

My question is this. Did the Docker install inside lxc container fail from host(Omnia/openwrt) kernel support or did it fail because the Bionic container from Turris lack support for Docker. Has anyone done this or aware of a container with docker preinstalled?

I hope I am being clear. Curious as to the communities thoughts on running easyengine v4 inside an lxc container.

Thank you

Likewise, I’d prefer to run docker directly, if it was supported on the omnia, but as it isn’t I prefer the isolation and have been running docker inside a basic archLinux lxc image. From there I can run supported arm docker hub images, like pihole. I can’t remember the exact steps but it’s basically documented here:

It would be great if the guys at turris supported docker directly or even a similar lxc wrapped approach and then leverage the maintained images on docker hub like https://hub.docker.com/r/lsioarmhf/tvheadend, as opposed to trying to support these packages themselves.
