I’m naïvely attempting to install boulder in a clean virtual machine, so that I can bring it over to my local offline network and use it there. I’ve never used go or docker before, so I’m asking for help with the initial pre-configuration with boulder so that I can build and start boulder. Once I get boulder to the point where it is working, I should be able to configure everything else.
So a few questions - boulder is designed to work on Ubuntu (or is redhat preferred or another version or n/a)? What version of go / docker is required / preferred? (Is building from the debian repositories ok or should I go for a different version of go or docker.) When the documentation says GOPATH, would that be the location of the go binary or a /var/local/go directory or to a different directory? Just not sure on the concept / where to go for that documentation?
Once I get it working, I’ll write up a little documentation that I will put on GitHub.
Thank you for the advice.
