How to install nmap / netcat on Boot2Docker

boot2docker uses tinycorelinux ( tiny core linux ) for it’s base image – and it is just that – tiny.

If you want to add in utilities, you’ll need to use tce-load because this distro doesn’t have apt-get install / aptitude install or yum install

What they have instead is tce-load – some information can be found on their install apps page

To install nmap you can run:

tce-load -wi nmap.tcz

I did not see netcat listed on the packages page but I was able to install socat which does the same things as netcat

tce-load -wi socat.tcz
