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).

  • Docker COPY doesn't work
  • Where to add client certificates for Docker for Mac?
  • Multiple docker container logs
  • How to enable SCM polling with the Jenkins Pipeline plugin
  • How to run some script inside Docker Container?
  • Docker client not working under ubuntu 12.04.4
  • 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?

  • Passing Different Arguments When Running Docker Image Multiple Times
  • Multiple docker containers as web server on a single IP
  • Fetching git behind proxy in docker container
  • Running Scrapy in Docker Container
  • Running quick programs inside a docker container
  • Version error when installing docker toolbox on OSX
  • Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
