I have the latest version of Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) installed, but when I run “wsl” from the command line I get the following error:
“An error occurred mounting one of your file systems. Please run ‘dmesg’ for more details.”
I hunted down a few possible explanations and one is the possibility that Docker is set as my default wsl. Sure enough, when I run <wsl -l -v>, the response is:
NAME STATE VERSION
* docker-desktop-data Stopped 2
docker-desktop Stopped 2
To correct this I am told to change the default from Docker to something else with the command <wsl -s distroName> wherein “distroName” should be changed to … something.
So I have two questions:
1) What should I type instead of “distroName”?
2) Will Docker Desktop still perform as intended if I do this?
