The package has been updated after the firecracker in [community].

if the rust dependency is satisfied by rustup, make sure to install x86_64-unknown-linux-musl

The docker thing…

unfortunately that's upstreams only documented way of building the project :(

if you find a better way, inform me. In the meanwhile I can propose: 1) use cloud-hypervisor 2) perhaps if podman can run on your CI, make a symlink to it to replace docker

The docker thing is a non-starter for CI building in docker or via chroot:

tools/devtool makes docker a requirement for the build. I'm not sure I'm comfortable with that.

OTOH, it's not much worse than rustup toolchain install 1.32.0 :/

This build currently does not produce a working build of firecracker.

Per this Github Issue:, firecracker won't work if built with Rust 1.33 or later. There are two main ways to fix this,

1) Have the "rustup install" line expicitly getting rust 1.32 (instead of the latest stable)

i.e. run "rustup toolchain install 1.32.0"

2) Use the recomended steps from github (,

i.e. run "tools/devtool -y build --release"
