I’m fairly competent with linux but a total noob to docker. I run slackware 14.2 and have installed docker from slackbuilds compiling from source. I’m trying to build a container that runs jackett, transmission, sonarr, radarr and plex having all the information stored in an lvm lv called “Shared” which is mounted on the host under /mnt/Shared, I’m using the docker-compose recommended method and trying to be able to use hardlinks. I’m trying to post my docker-compose.yml file but this is telling me that I can’t post more than two links.
So far I have been able to download the magnet files from jacket into the /downloads folder in the jackett container but those files don’t show up in the host under /mnt/Shared/watch as I expected. When I connect to the jackett container with the following command “sudo /usr/bin/docker exec -ti jackett /bin/bash” I can see that the mountpoint of /downloads is not what I expected
root@88ac1f829fd8:/# mount | grep downloads
/dev/mapper/Volume-root on /downloads type ext4 (rw,relatime,data=ordered)
In this folder I can see the magnet files I downloaded while testing and can see these files in the transmission container too. However I can’t find these files in the hosts filesystem and even after I prune everything on docker, even the images, when I start the container again these files are still there so I have to questions that I haven’t been able to solve by myself
- Why aren’t these files in the /mnt/Shared mountpoint in the hosts filesystem?
- Where are these files being stored so I can manage them from outside the container?
Thanks in advance!
