Introduction:

Podman provides a great way instead of Dockers to develop, manage and run OCI containers on your Linux System. It runs without the daemon process. Let’s move towards the Installation of Podman on Arch Linux / manjaro. The installation process would be easy as the packages are available on upstream repositories.

Installing Podman on Arch Linux / Manjaro

Firstly, update your Arch / Manjaro system.

sudo pacman -Syyu

After the packages are updated, proceed to Install Podman on your Linux system.

sudo pacman -S podman
