Run PowerPC LE (ppc64le) arch Docker Image on Intel

This scenario describes how to run a Docker Image for a specific archtiecture (say PowerPC LE) on a system with different CPU architecture (Intel)

Using PowerPC LE (ppc64le) Docker Images on Intel Host

Step 1 of 2

Step 1 - Setup Environment

Download and Install the Qemu binary. QEMU is an open source machine emulator and virtualizer.

When used as a machine emulator, QEMU can run OSes and programs made for one machine - eg PowerPC LE on a different machine - e.g on Intel laptop. wget https://github.com/multiarch/qemu-user-static/releases/download/v2.7.0/qemu-ppc64le-static.tar.gz tar zxvf qemu-ppc64le-static.tar.gz

Register Qemu as PowerPC LE binary handler. This is the key thing. We'll be using multiarch/qemu-user-static docker image for this.

docker run --rm --privileged multiarch/qemu-user-static:register
