Chapter 4. Container images with Rust Toolset on RHEL 8

On RHEL 8, you can build your own Rust Toolset container images on top of Red Hat Universal Base Images (UBI) containers using Containerfiles.

4.1. Creating a container image of Rust Toolset on RHEL 8

On RHEL 8, Rust Toolset packages are part of the Red Hat Universal Base Images (UBIs) repositories. To keep the container size small, install only individual packages instead of the entire Rust Toolset.

Prerequisites

  • An existing Containerfile.
    For more information on creating Containerfiles, see the Dockerfile reference page.

Procedure

  • Visit the Red Hat Container Catalog.
  • Select a UBI.
  • Click Get this image and follow the instructions.
  • To create a container containing Rust Toolset, add the following lines to your Containerfile:
FROM registry.access.redhat.com/ubi8/ubi:latest

RUN yum install -y rust-toolset
  • To create a container image containing an individual package only, add the following lines to your Containerfile:
RUN yum install <package-name>
  • Replace <package_name> with the name of the package you want to install.
