Fedora-tools for atomic host

Fedora Atomic Host is a container-native version of the Fedora distribution. It is one of several operating systems expressly designed for running containers. A listing of those I’m aware of can be found at 6 operating systems designed just for Docker and other container runtimes.

On Fedora Atomic Host, as on CentOS Atomic Host and Red Hat Atomic Host, there are no binary packages to install, so you can’t do a dnf install or yum install because everything available for use on the system is a container.

So what happens when you need to perform the usual system administration tasks using the usual system administration tools that you’re used to from Fedora? That’s where fedora-tools comes in. Watch the video below to see how the Red Hat version (rhel-tools) works, then read this blog posts to learn how to use fedora-tools image.

  1. btrfs by default has been delayed to F17: https://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/devel/2011-August/155345.html

    the use of GPT is not actually intended, it’s a bug. GPT should be used only when it’s actually required – when you’re using an EFI-based system, or when a disk is larger than 2TB in size (I believe that’s the cutoff). Use of GPT on smaller disks is a bug that’s been noted by a few others but hasn’t been pinned down yet: see this thread – https://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/test/2011-August/101600.html .

  2. I guess reading *all* of the article helps…

    “and as I discovered, btrfs is not even in the picture, for now”

    oops, I missed that line in my first read but thanks for sharing what you have found.

  3. I am a bit confused, you said that you installed the Fedora 16 pre-alpha to see what the partitioning would be like with btrfs…

    “I downloaded a pre-Alpha image just to see what the new partitioning scheme will be on Anaconda, the Fedora system installation program, with btrfs.”

    Yet you go on to show screen shots of the installer using the normal ext4 file systems with standard LVM.

    Where is the btrfs with built in volume management?
