Can I develope VOXL in a Docker using Windows?



  • I've been trying to follow this installation guide not using linux but windows:

    https://docs.modalai.com/install-voxl-docker/

    I haven't been able to run the "install-emulator-docker.sh" file. Having Git installed on Windows, it tries to execute it but with no succes:

  • Bash for Windows is not something we have tried specifically.

    If that is your only machine, your best bet though would be to try either:

    1. using WSL2 (Windows Subsystem for Linux version 2), and double check your configuration is WSL2 (it sometimes defaults to v1)
    2. A Google Cloud Ubuntu VM

    You could also convert the script into a Windows batch file or some other Windows scripting language. But there are Debian specific things in the script file that you would need to convert to the Windows alternative. For example, there are package management commands (apt) that would need to be changed into something for Windows and you would need to use the Windows version of QEMU. This could be a challenging task!
