One question about the Debian version of geodesic… Why Debian and not for example Ubuntu?
Good question. I note that official PHP docker images use Debian as the base, and so do nginx.
My guess is Debian has a good reputation of stable releases.
Yep, you’re right, that makes sense.
We’ll be adding other distros that are based on
It’s very easy now for us to do that.
@Jeremy (Cloud Posse) heads up
@vFondevilla @Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) We chose Debian because it has a focus on being a stable, secure distro for servers. We prefer server-based distros because we run in containers that do not have access to video displays, so all the desktop support is extra weight and complexity we do not need.
We expect we will eventually make an Ubuntu-based Geodesic image, but if you do not want to wait, you can try making your own using our Debian Dockerfile as a starting point. My experience is that it is pretty easy except for
• installing python3 and the python packages we want
• configuring syslong-ng
• figuring out which system tools (e.g.
dig) are missing and how to get them installed.
If you get it working, please let us know by opening an issue on Geodesic and attaching the working Dockerfile, along with any notes about differences between the Ubuntu version and the Debian version.
Geodesic is a cloud automation shell. It's the fastest way to get up and running with a rock solid, production grade cloud platform built on top of strictly Open Source tools. ★ this repo! h…
Anyone know of a quick work around for WSL2 + assume role; it maps aws-vault as a mount to the original folder
.aws -> /mnt/c/Users/chris/.aws
Which makes docker volume mounting sad
ha nvm its less of an issue once it clicked that although it kindly created the aws folder in my real user folder the aws vault one doesnt live there so it fails anyway
@chrism we have no way of testing WSL2 unfortunately - everyone on our team is on a mac
it works fine btw; if anything the wirings better
just the weirdness of it creating a symlink to .aws in the windows user dir
which throws off assume-role as i think it looks for a folder and just gets the link so it tries to create a .aws folder
easily sorted though
If there’s anything we can add to
geodesic to fix that, LMK
