Docker for mac hangs on startup


(Scott Chamberlain) #1

Expected behavior

When launching docker.app I expected it to start normally.

Actual behavior

However, it hangs indefinitely on status “Docker is starting”, image below

This also happens for me - any news here?

I think this line in the logs may be important

Most specific failure is: the variables DOCKER_CERT_PATH DOCKER_TLS_VERIFY DOCKER_HOST should not be set

and a friend suggested that env vars for previous docker setups (e.g,. boot2docker) should be removed

Haven’t tried it yet though
