Cannot install Docker App 1.11.1-beta11 (6974) on Mac 10.11.4 (Build 15E65)


(Oltruong) #1

Expected behavior

Docker Install

Actual behavior

Fatal Error right after entering password for root access

Communication with networking components failed.

Information

  • the output of:
    • pinata diagnose -u on OSX

-bash: pinata: command not found

Steps to reproduce the behavior

Try to install latest Docker Beta version having previously uninstalled all previous Docker versions

In /Library/LaunchDaemons/ I have no com.docker.vmnetd.plist so I cannot use the workaround mentioned in

Here are the logs

Found the answer!
Here’s what I had to do

Make sure folder /var/tmp exists (mine was deleted so had to recreate it)

Then copy com.docker.vmnetd.plist from DockerApp content to /Library/LaunchDaemons/

Then apply the following workaround by synic (see Install error: Fatal Error: Communication with networking components failed) (adding the middle line)

$ chmod 600 /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.docker.vmnetd.plist
$ sudo chown root /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.docker.vmnetd.plist
$ sudo launchctl load -Fw /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.docker.vmnetd.plist
