NAME
----
container-create-curl - Create a Debian based container by downloading a tarball over the network


SYNOPSIS
--------
*container create -s curl* ['OPTIONS']


DESCRIPTION
-----------
The curl container creation script uses curl(1) to download a tarball over the
network to create a Debian based container.

Depending on the tarball this script otherwise creates a pure Debian system with three modificiations:

  * hostname is set (container name) in /etc/hostname
  * systemd machine-id is generated in /etc/machine-id
  * root password is set (user specified or 16 random characters)


OPTIONS
-------
The following script options are available:

*-n, --name='NAME'*::
	Specify container name.

*-a, --architecture='ARCHITECTURE'*::
	Specify the Debian architecture, defaults to the host systems architecture.

*-d, --distribution='DISTRIBUTION'*::
	Specify the Debian distribution, defaults to stretch.

*-m, --mirror='MIRROR'*::
	Specify the Debian mirror, defaults to https://files.open-infrastructure.net/images/container-tools.

*--no-signature*::
	Does not verify downloaded tarballs with a GnuPG signature.

*-p, --root-password='PASSWORD'*::
	Specify the root password, defaults to a random 16 character password.


EXAMPLES
--------
*Create a Debian 9 (stretch) based container with same architecture as the host system:*::
	sudo container create -s curl -n stretch.example.net

*Create a Debian 9 (stretch) based container with different architecture as the host system:*::
	sudo container create -s curl -n stretch-i386.example.net -- -a i386


CONTAINER IMAGES
----------------

container-tools will download tarballs from the server expecting the following layout:
