Cross compiling in Docker
I have installed the Docker image for cross compiling and built the toolchain which took a few hours. Now I would like to save the container to avoid having to build it all over again.
What is the best approach to do that? I tried committing the container which took forever and then I got a "no space left" error. I am pretty sure this is not the appropriate way of doing it.
Any help is appreciated
@Erik-Hougaard isn’t the container saved unless you delete it? I built the toolchain and images here under docker on macOS and just start the container when I need access to it.
Are you running out of space on your local drive? The build is huge here, like 10gb or something.
I'm no docker expert, but I've been learning a bit about it over the last few days. When you exit a container it automatically maintains its last state.
I would suggest that you review the docker docs on how to re-use a container. i.e. look into
docker attachif you detached instead of exiting.
