Buildah usage, when agola executor in docker mode

I’ve tried with buildah in Jenkins, refer to this:

I prefer to buildah other than kaniko, As buildah bud -t myimg . just same usage with docker. And few months ago ADD --chown user:user dirs were not supported by kaniko

As I known:

  • 1.need --privileged
  • 2.buildah with volume mount to avoid overfs on overfs

The second I can have a try, As the first item, How the task container be set with --privileged?

You have to do two main things:

Set the allowPrivilegedContainers executor configuration option to true

Example:

executor:
  dataDir: ...
  runserviceURL: ...
  web:
    listenAddress: ...
  driver:
    type: ...
  allowPrivilegedContainers: true

Set the task runtime container as privileged:

runs:
  - name: ...
    tasks:
      - name: ...
        runtime:
          containers:
            - image: ...
              privileged: true

We are using this with dind containers doing a docker build and it works.

Will open an agola site issue to document this since it’s currently undocumented.

Agola doc enhancement issue:

Thx for providing the --privileged info, It works for me now:

My cnf: (with tmpfs volumes)

            containers: [
              {
                privileged: true,
                image: 'registry.cn-shenzhen.aliyuncs.com/k-spe/dvp-buildah:v3',
                volumes: [
                  { path: '/var/lib/containers', tmpfs: {size: '5120Mi'} },
                  { path: '/run/containers', tmpfs: {} },
                ],               
              },
            ],

Result:
