Does TinyCore support Kubernetes?
« on: January 21, 2021, 11:23:11 AM »
I am looking to run a Kubernetes cluster with some clients (not the server itself) running TinyCore for minimal footprint.
Searching for "kubernetes" doesn't bring up anything on here.

Is this possible to have a Kub client running TC, or is this too lightweight?

 hi ryanm

wrt kube ..idfk !

however according to https://thenewstack.io/a-guide-to-linux-operating-systems-for-kubernetes/

less is still more !!

Quote from: a-guide-to-linux-operating-systems-for-kubernetes
To summarize the obvious — the less software and packages an OS is running, the less there is to attack, and the less vulnerabilities will be present. This makes container-specific OS’s significantly more secure from the start, even without frequent patching.

... wrt to wtf is (tiny) core

did you see : http://tinycorelinux.net/intro.html


Is this possible to have a Kub client running TC, or is this too lightweight?

begging the question what is required  "to have a Kub client running" (again idk) ..?


is core "too lightweight?"

 perhaps ... if *whatever* dependency's can be satisfied ..

 i guess  " a kube cluster with some clients (not the server itself) "

 is something different to this ?    . . . how do nodes relate to clusters or clients =s

 https://gist.github.com/afbjorklund/8f4c42ef1b60e4a2ee501ac81f601cb3 # a single-node kube installation, using the regular Boot2Docker ISO

 which is apparently built using tcl  !

https://stackshare.io/stackups/boot2docker-vs-kubernetes
Quote
What is boot2docker? Lightweight Linux for Docker. boot2docker is a lightweight Linux distribution based on Tiny Core Linux

in case its relevant??!

tcl also gets a mention hear
https://boot2podman.github.io/2020/06/21/buildroot-kubernetes.html
 
so at least some other ppl see some reason to combine this distro and those tools

im not exactly familiar with the terminology around the tools in question ,
( i guess any clarification would help answer the question )
perhaps some of the above can provide some motivation to try and find out

IF tcl *can* support kube in the case case of runing a  ` cluster with some clients ` .

 ???
