To install, download the <code>docker-1.10.0-dev</code> binary to your system. You'll need to start a docker daemon from this binary, and then you can use the same binary to communicate with that daemon. To start a docker daemon, run a command something like this:
The '''graph''' and '''host''' options will prevent colliding with an existing installation of Docker, but you can replace your existing docker if desired. In another shell, you can then connect to that daemon:

In addition to downloading the binary above (or compiling one yourself), you need '''CRIU''' installed on your system, with at least version 2.0. You also need some shared libraries on your system. The most likely things you'll need to install are '''libprotobuf-c''' and '''libnl-3'''. Here's an output of <code>ldd</code> on my system:
linux-vdso.so.1 => (0x00007ffc09fda000)
libpthread.so.0 => /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libpthread.so.0 (0x00007fd28b2c7000)
First, we create container:
You can verify the container is running by printings its logs:
If you do this a few times you'll notice the integer increasing. Now, we checkpoint the container:
You should see that the process is no longer running, and if you print the logs a few times no new logs will be printed.
Like '''checkpoint''', '''restore''' is a top level command in this version of Docker. Continuing our example, let's restore the same container:
If we then print the logs, you should see they start from where we left off and continue to increase.
