10.11.5 docker for mac failure


(Erik Kristian Sverre Uri) #1

Expected behavior

Docker for Mac runs on fresh 10.11.5 installation.

Actual behavior

Docker for Mac hangs at ‘Getting Started’, and eventually causes the system to crash.

  • a reproducible case if this is a bug, Dockerfiles FTW
  • page URL if this is a docs issue or the name of a man page
  • host distribution and version ( OSX 10.10.x, OSX 10.11.x, Windows, etc )

Steps to reproduce the behavior

  1. Install macOS 10.11.4
  2. Update to 10.11.5
  3. Install Docker for Mac Beta 13
  4. Run Docker for Mac Beta

Might be related with this

The update breaks the ability of mounting certain formats (such as DMG) for some users

EDIT: Thank you so much for that link, a fresh re-installlation of El Capitan managed to resolve this issue for me.

I had same problem when running Kinematic setup, but I’ve solved, starting docker before to run Kitematic Setup

It’s started happening again, after I had rebuilt my kexts on my machine, so I uploaded some diagnostics.
