Is it possible to have latest Docker version on Fedora CoreOS?

Would it be possible to have Docker Engine 19.03.01 available on fedora CoreOS?

When I check the version on our test box this is what I see:

docker version

Version: 18.06.3
API version: 1.38
Go version: go1.12
Git commit: d7080c1
Built: Thu Mar 28 16:22:13 2019
OS/Arch: linux/amd64
Experimental: false

Version: dev
API version: 1.38 (minimum version 1.12)
Go version: go1.12
Git commit: d7080c1
Built: Thu Mar 28 16:21:35 2019
OS/Arch: linux/amd64
Experimental: false

You can try this, although I’m not sure how well it works.

cd /etc/yum.repos.d
sudo wget
rpm-ostree install docker-ce docker-ce-cli

You will probably have to disable moby-engine though.

rpm-ostree override remove moby-engine runc


rpm-ostree uninstall moby-engine

Edit: Yeh this totally doesn’t work without removing runc which removes podman, so not a good idea.

Thanks @pluto,

I was actually hoping to get an answer in the view of this comment which made me think that in this preview release we would have the latest Docker client and server already on the Fedora CoreOS.

Would you know someone or a channel where I can ask this question?


There are links to the mailing list and IRC here.

Thanks @refi64, I tried to ask the question at however it got rejected with the following reason: “The message is not from a list member”

Maybe I did something wrong somewhere.

You have to subscribe to the list before sending a mail to it. We have it set up this way because otherwise we get a bunch of spam that we then have to moderate and we don’t moderate it that often which means your messages wait in moderation forever.

Can you subscribe to the list and then re-send the email?

Thanks @dustymabe, I thought I was subscribed (it was sign-up apparently) and I see this message on my “Manage subscription”: " You have a subscription request pending. If you don’t hear back soon, please contact the list owners."

The list subscription policy is set to confirm which means you’ll recieve an email and have to click a link to confirm your subscription to the list. I just went in and manually confirmed your subscription so you should be good now.

Thank you very much @dustymabe, I have posted my question there finally.
