Building container images

Our container images are hosted on Quay.io. SIG members should have push access, and bot credentials are stored in the secrets repo on gitlab.

To build and push a new image:

  • get a stock system of the same version as your target (e.g. CentOS Stream 8 for the stream8 image)
  • ensure our release package is installed (for the GPG keys): dnf install centos-release-hyperscale
  • clone our containers-releng repo: git clone https://pagure.io/centos-sig-hyperscale/containers-releng
  • build the image (use 8 or 9 for version): ./make-hyperscale-container.sh $VERSION
  • check that the image is sane (e.g. by logging into the container and inspecting the rpmdb)
  • login on quay: podman login quay.io
  • push the image: podman push centos-stream-hyperscale-${VERSION} quay.io/centoshyperscale/centos:stream${VERSION}

Once the image is pushed check the tags page on Quay.
