How to make Docker work on Debian Stretch
Docker provides .deb files for docker:
deb https://apt.dockerproject.org/repo delian-stretch main
However, these don’t work on Debian Stretch (AMD64) because the kernel does not support the AUFS file system. Switching to the overlay file system leads for me to permission problems in the
/var/lib/docker/overlay hierarchy (even when root).
I switched to the overlay file system by starting the docker daemon with
--storage-driver overlay — this was suggested as a fix in some comments on the Debian bug tracker.
So, what does work?
