Docker CE not supported , why ?

Hi,

I would like install the last version of Docker CE (17.06) into my Leap 42.3 .
But there is no repository with this version , only with the very old 1.12 …

At docker site, the version EE for SLES says Opensuse isn’t supported and need the btrfs FS !??
Why only on SLES have this requirement and not in centoOS ? what make SUSE so different ?

OS requirements

To install Docker EE, you need the 64-bit version of SLES 12.x. Docker EE is not supported on OpenSUSE.
The only supported storage driver for Docker EE on SLES is btrfs, which will be used by default if the underlying filesystem hosting /var/lib/docker/ is a BTRFS filesystem.

To use the CE version I has installed a new CentOS to test dockers… and there it works fine with Ext4 and Ext2!

I’m become very disappointed with OpenSuse, I use it for +10 years and the last 2yrs I notice a LOT of softwares are dropping theirs support for it , someones still keep to SLES , but I already notice fews already drop too. Why this is occurring ?
I’m hate the idea of migrate my hosts to CentoOS , but I become without options…

(zabbix is another software what I used which already drop the support to Suse years ago)

I don’t think you’re looking in the right places:

    Docker complements LXC with a high-level API which operates at the process
    level. It runs unix processes with strong guarantees of isolation and
    repeatability across servers.


    Docker is a great building block for automating distributed systems: large-scale
    web deployments, database clusters, continuous deployment systems, private PaaS,
    service-oriented architectures, etc.

Because SLES and openSUSE both offer advanced BTRFS only features that CentOS that does not.

Zabbix didn’t drop support, it’s still available via OBS packaged by, for example, me.
