[DEV] Docker deb package for Debian buster (resolved)
« on: April 05, 2020, 06:44:29 am »
I've been looking around for the Docker CE (ppc64le) binary for Debian buster. Docker does not offer ppc64le package for Debian (source:

The only source I could find is this post from IBM which has links to Unicamp repository. Unfortunately that repo has old version.

Wondering if anyone know of a maintained repo with up-to-date Docker CE packages?

UPDATE: AFAIK there is no official packages from K8S or Debian, however the new K8S comes witth kubepkg tooling which could be used to build debian packages. Here is the link to built DEB packages

Much thanks in advance

This is a little bit confusing in Debian and Docker

A search for a package with the exact name docker finds this:

Searching for any package including the name docker finds a lot more, including the package which is more recent:

They wrote that it is not supported on anything except amd64 but they don't explicitly write that it won't work

Here it says the compile succeeded for ppc64el but not on other ppc variants:

Does anybody know what "not supported" means in this context?
