I have installed docker on my machine, but I cannot figure out how to make the service run on startup.

local/docker-s6 20200907-1 (s6-galaxy)
    s6 service scripts for docker

On Arch Linux with systemd I would use systemctl enable --now docker What is the equivalent on s6 if there is one?

  • I have no idea, but I'd probably start looking here. That seems to explain how to get stuff started at boot with s6. There's also this.

This is what the documentation says


To modify an already existing bundle, you can use the s6-rc-bundle-update helper script. To add something to an existing bundle you can just execute: s6-rc-bundle-update add default service4.

So the answer to your specific question would be

s6-rc-bundle-update add default docker.
