I have a Linode box running 14.04 LTS that I wanted to install discourse on using the docker installation setup. It looks like the kernel Linode uses doesn’t support Aufs yet (or at least docker doesn’t think it does), because device mapper is the driver it decided to use.
When I tried to install Discourse, I got the following error:
“Your Docker installation is not using aufs
Device mapper and other experimental drivers are unstable”
Is there a reason you require Aufs? Just for giggles I commented out the line in launcher that was exiting 1 for not having aufs, and the installation proceeded smoothly, and everything seems to work great.
Am I setting myself up for trouble or have things matured with device mapper since this message/check was first added?
Thanks! I’m really excited about the future of Discourse.
