Hi! Recently, I have been working on some Golang projects. While using Docker build image, I encountered some issues.


After Docker image build is completed, the following error occurs when executing docker run:

standard_init_linux.go:211: exec user process caused "no such file or directory"


Taking the project URL-Shortener that I am currently working on as an example.
In this project, I use the Library go-sqlite3.

We can notice that go-sqlite3 is written in C programming language. When we are building, we need to use GCC and CGO to construct. Therefore, we also need to set the CGO_ENABLED variable to 1 so that it can perform dynamic compilation.

  • The command is like this
    $ CGO_ENABLED=1 CC=gcc go build -o /app/app main.go

Mini Image

Open two containers.

The first container

  • Execute docker build to build.
  • Copy the completed binary file to the second container.

Install related packages in the second container and package it.

FROM golang:1.18-alpine3.15 as builder

RUN apk --update upgrade \
    && apk add --no-cache sqlite gcc g++ \
    && rm -rf /var/cache/apk/*

COPY . .
RUN  CGO_ENABLED=1 CC=gcc go build -o /app/app main.go

FROM alpine:3.10

# Install for go-sqlite3 use
RUN apk --update upgrade \
    && apk add --no-cache sqlite \
    && rm -rf /var/cache/apk/*

COPY --from=builder /app/app /app/
CMD ["./app"]
