Install Solum

Distro specific installation

TODO add docs here on how to install on different distros like:

  • debian

  • redhat

  • suse

  • ubuntu

For a development installation use devstack

Enabling Solum in DevStack

  1. Install Docker version 1.7.0 using following steps (Solum has been tested with this version of Docker):

    echo deb docker main | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker.list
    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys 36A1D7869245C8950F966E92D8576A8BA88D21E9
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install lxc-docker-1.7.0
  2. Download DevStack:

    git clone
    cd devstack
  3. Add this repo as an external repository:

    cat > local.conf <<END
    enable_plugin solum

    To use stable branches, make sure devstack is on that branch, and specify the branch name to enable_plugin, for example:

    enable_plugin solum stable/mitaka
  4. Run ./


This setup will produce virtual machines, not Docker containers. For an example of the Docker setup, see:
