can I run “ordinary” third-party Docker containers on Torizon, or do they need to be specifically tailored to Torizon OS?
Use-case: I have built a (generic) Arm64 Docker-Container in Yocto and would like to run it on my Apalis IMX8 module using Torizon OS. Is this possible out of the box or does it need tweaking?
You can run any container you want on Torizon. There’s no special step or task needed to create a container for Torizon. In fact you can see this yourself since we most of our Dockerfiles for our containers are public: GitHub - toradex/debian-docker-images: Official supported Debian based Docker images.
The only thing with third-party containers it that we can’t guarantee they will “just work”. Especially since not all containers were designed with an embedded target in mind.
