Your progress



In this module you will:

  • Get used to Toradex Debian Docker Image
Typographic Conventions


For this Getting Started Guide:

  • Development computer with Windows 10 Pro / Enterprise / Education.
  • Successfully completed the previous lesson from this guide.

Note: Carefully read this module's cover page clicking on "Module 2: First Steps with Torizon" on the left menu bar before starting this lesson.

Step 1

On module's terminal, pull Toradex's Debian image:

docker pull torizon/arm32v7-debian-base

Step 2

Instantiate and run a new container:

docker run -it -v /var/run/dbus:/var/run/dbus -v /dev:/dev torizon/arm32v7-debian-base

The flags on this command give the container the necessary permissions to access hardware features from the host.

Step 3

Now the container is running and its terminal is shown. Run apt update. After this you can use apt install commands. For instance:

apt update
apt install vim


What do the docker run flags do?
Are all packages from Debian available on the board?
Can I run 32 bit containers on 64 bit platforms?
What is the difference between a Docker image and container?
