Build docker for OpenPOWER (ppc64le)

It’s a nightmare if you have a unsupported arch while building tools. I have tried to build docker for RHEL/CentOS, Ubuntu for ppc64le. It took me lots of time.

Fortunately, from 1.10, docker will support arch ppc64le officially. ppc64le will be the default arch for OpenPOWER system. As of now, docker code is still in reorg. So there might be some tricks while building docker for ppc64le. Follow below steps. You can get a preview docker 1.10.0-dev for your system. Let’s try it.

It is much simpler than before. Only two commands~

docker build -t docker -f Dockerfile.ppc64le .
docker run --privileged docker ./hack/ gccg

Let’s check the running version.

./docker-1.10.0-dev version
 Version:      1.10.0-dev
 API version:  1.23
 Go version:   go1.4.2 gccgo (GCC) 5.3.0
 Git commit:   6f86bce-unsupported
 Built:        Sun Jan 31 16:11:15 2016
 OS/Arch:      linux/ppc64le

Linux 下安装识别 Marvell 88SE91xx 硬盘

88SE91xx 可以使用 AHCI 驱动,但是默认 Linux 无法识别 88SE91xx 需要手动添加到 AHCI 列表中。方法如下。

  • 首先获得到 88SE91xx 的 Vendor ID 和 Device ID
$ lspci -nnk | grep Marvell
04:00.0 RAID bus controller [0104]: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88SE9172 SATA III 6Gb/s RAID Controller [1b4b:9192] (rev 11)
  • 使 AHCI 识别
$ /bin/echo 1b4b 9192 > /sys/bus/pci/drivers/ahci/new_id


这样就能识别到在 88SE91xx 上的硬盘了。


强制 VMware vSphere Client 语言以英文运行


  1. 右击 vSphere Client 图标
  2. 选择 “快捷方式” 选项卡,在目标后加上 “-locale en_US”
  3. 确定退出
  4. 使用更改后的快捷方式打开 vSphere Client

英文运行vSphere Client

判断 Python 模块是否安装

在不加载 module 的情况下判断 module 是否已安装

import imp

class checkModule:

        except ImportError:
            found = False

        if not found:
            raise AssertionError('Module psutil is not installed.')
            print('Module psutil is installed.')

关闭 SELinux

vim /etc/sysconfig/selinux


# This file controls the state of SELinux on the system.
# SELINUX= can take one of these three values:
#       enforcing - SELinux security policy is enforced.
#       permissive - SELinux prints warnings instead of enforcing.
#       disabled - SELinux is fully disabled.
# SELINUXTYPE= type of policy in use. Possible values are:
#       targeted - Only targeted network daemons are protected.
#       strict - Full SELinux protection.
