UCS installation in container with unmaintained=yes


#1

We need some packages from the unmaintained repository, but the UCS installation at the docker container has this variable set to “no”

I try to create a join script which will set this variable, but our join script will not be deploied inside the container.

What could we do?


#2

The join script is not run inside the container. It is run on the outside (because not all containers can run join scripts - not all containers are based on appbox).

You want a script that is run inside the container. In this case, setup would be the correct one.

I used this opportunity to add a snippet to our documentation about the various scripts:
https://wiki.univention.de/index.php/Docker_Apps/Container_Scripts#setup_in_UCS_based_containers

Note that for appbox Apps, you could just download the packages on a full UCS server with unmaintained enabled (ucr set repository/online/unmaintained=yes && apt update && apt download ...) and then upload these packages to your repository in the App Center.
