    How to Install Podman on Windows 10


    WSL Installation

    You can now install everything you need to run Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) by entering this command in an administrator PowerShell or Windows Command Prompt and then restarting your machine.

    Pre Req: You need to have at least Windows 10 build 18917.

    Set the default version to 2:

    To set the default version to WSL 1 or WSL 2 when a new Linux distribution is installed, use the command: wsl --set-default-version <Version#>, replacing <Version#> with either 1 or 2.



    Then run this command.

    wsl --install -d Ubuntu


    This command will enable the required optional components, download the latest Linux kernel, set WSL 2 as your default, and install a Linux distribution for you. By default, the installed Linux distribution will be Ubuntu. This can be changed using the -d flag.

    ·       To see a list of available Linux distributions available for download through the online store, enter: wsl --list --online or wsl -l -o.

    # wget -nv https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:kubic:libcontainers:stable/x${NAME}_${VERSION_ID}/Release.key -O Release.key

    # apt-key add - < Release.key

    # apt-get update -qq

    # apt-get -qq -y install podman

    # mkdir -p /etc/containers

    # echo -e "[registries.search]\nregistries = ['docker.io', 'quay.io']" | tee /etc/containers/registries.conf
