Error running file in Container “error when loading shared libraries” DOCKER

So I am building an image from a dockerfile, using the COPY command to copy a local file from host into my container. After the image is build I run an interactive shell, and test my file which I copied and am having an error.

Here is my shell information.

  • Docker Image installing php modules
  • Why is my node child_process terminating early?
  • Docker Cannot link to a non running container
  • OSX 10.11.3 Install gitlab server using docker

  • arcolombo@arcolombo:~/Documents/bedgraph_dockerfile$ sudo docker info

    WARNING: No swap limit support

    Here is my docker file

    FROM ubuntu
    COPY software /bin

    Note that under my directory where my Dockerfile is contained, I placed my “software” directory, which has a bedWiggle executable in the Dockerfile’s context, so it does get loaded into my new container of which my image creates.

    This shows the successful completion of the image

    arcolombo@arcolombo:~/Documents/bed_dockerfile$ sudo docker build        -t="arcolombo" .

    Yet I get the error when I enter the container built by the above image and running my executable

    root@hhhlf75hhhhfcb87ccfa:/bin# ./bedWigggle
    ./bedWiggle: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    The error tells you exactly what the problem is – you have copied over the executable, but it has dependencies on various libraries (including that aren’t in the container.

    You have two choices; you can add the dependencies to the container or you can recompile the executable so that it is statically linked.

    You can run the ldd tool on the executable to discover which dependencies it requires. You can then either copy the libraries directly into the container as you did with the executable or (probably better) you can find which package the dependencies are from and install with apt-get.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
