Docker client won't start with storage-driver = BTRFS

(Brandong) #1

Expected behavior

Should be able to run the Docker Beta client with storage-driver using BTRFS

Actual behavior

Docker Beta hangs on Starting… after changing the storage-driver from AUFS to BTRFS



Docker for Mac: version: v1.11.1-beta14.4.m
OS X: version 10.10.3 (build: 14D136)
logs: /tmp/20160609-131959.tar.gz
failure: No error was detected

Steps to reproduce the behavior

  1. $ pinata get daemon > config.json
  2. Change config.json to look something like {“storage-driver”:“btrfs”,“debug”:true}
  3. $ pinata set daemon @config.json

The underlying kernel of the VM running docker for mac doesent currently support BTRFS, im wondering how we get that added by the docker for mac developers?
