In order to run your own copy of the book with gitbook within a local container:

  1. Enable Docker experimental features with vim or another text editor

     sudo vim /usr/lib/systemd/system/docker.service

    Then add --experimental=true to the end of the ExecStart=/usr/bin/dockerd -H fd:// line and save.

    Eg: ExecStart=/usr/bin/dockerd -H fd:// --experimental=true

    Then, you need to reload and restart the Docker daemon:

     systemctl daemon-reload
     systemctl restart docker.service
  2. Run docker image

    make run
  3. Open your local copy of linux insides book under this url http://localhost:4000 or run make browse
