Bug#929315: docker.io: Please configure docker0 ip address and netmask at install time

Salvo Tomaselli-3
Package: docker.io
Version: 18.09.1+dfsg1-7~deb10u1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

as it is, docker.io will automatically start and create a docker0 network
interface with some hard-coded IP address, and there is no file in /etc that
can be edited to change said IP address.

One must look into the documentation, find out that a file called
needs to be created, with a field called "bip", and have as value an

It is important because for some people (for example me) having an interface
pop up with an hard coded address can cause collisions with existing routes and
local network configuration.

So ideally, this shouldbe configured at install time, like postfix-style, but
at the very least, a configuration file that one can just edit should be in

Of course the .json files do not allow for commments, so one should understand
that "bip" stands for "bridge ip", but better than the current situation.
