Docker commit hangs

Expected behavior

docker commit change made in a container into a new image

Actual behavior

docker commit “hangs”
if I then interrupt with ctrl-c, no other docker command work and I have to restart docker beta…


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

no output ?
- DockerDebugInfo.ps1 using Powershell on Windows

  • 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 )
    OSX 10.11.5

Steps to reproduce the behavior

  1. docker run -it aphecetche/centos7-o2-alien
  2. yum install -y libX11-devel mesa-libGLU-devel libXpm-devel libXft-devel
  3. cd /alicesw
  4. alibuild/aliBuild build ROOT

and then try to commit the resulting container to an image…

(obviously the steps 2-4 are intented to become part of a Dockerfile at some point)
