Hi Felix,

We offer two different types of Runners for Linux:

The Docker ones require Docker to run, however, the Shell ones do not, and they use Bash to run the pipelines steps on your machine.

I am not familiar with Podman, but if it's a tool you can use from Bash, you can look into our Linux Shell Runners.

Kind regards,

perfect, we'll try with the shell runners

Did you have any luck with this @Felix Schendel ?  Looking to do the same.

Yes, we went with the shell runners. They have some limitations (mentioned in the link) but those were fine for us.

In our case we can't install docker on the host so if podman is not supported it makes no sense to use pipelines unfortunately.

To further describe the issue: it seems docker image "" relies on the docker daemon. We tried to mount the podman socket instead of the docker one but it was still complaining with sth like:

connect(..) failed: Connection refused: /var/run/docker.sock

Any ideas welcome! Hope someone has successfully used self-hosted runners using podman.
