Docker Mac OSX "Docker Starting.."


(Douglas Ferguson) #1

Whenever I run the docker for Mac it just continuously runs the animation and says “Docker is starting” but never starts


(Paul Adams) #2

Expected behaviour

When I launch Docker for Mac, I should see the status as “Running” eventually.

Actual behaviour

After launching Docker for Mac, the Docker icon in the titlebar is constantly animating to show that Docker is starting. Running any Docker command in the terminal confirms that Docker has not started successfully.

Information

OS X: version 10.11.5 (build: 15F34)
Docker.app: version v1.11.1-beta13.1
Running diagnostic tests:
[OK] Moby booted
[OK] driver.amd64-linux
[OK] vmnetd
[OK] osxfs
[OK] db
[OK] slirp
[OK] menubar
[OK] environment
[OK] Docker
[OK] VT-x

Steps to reproduce the behavior

  • Launch Docker for Mac by clicking the icon in the Applications folder
  • Observe the the icon in the titlebar showing that Docker is starting
  • Docker then never actually starts

(Matthewbrahms) #3

“Docker is Starting…” never actually starts up; always says “Docker is Starting…”

OS X version:
System Version: OS X 10.11.5 (15F34)
Kernel Version: Darwin 15.5.0

Docker: Version 1.11.1-beta13.1 (build: 8193)

Starting this application at system start or opening it from the applications folder reproduces this behavior.

cannot seem to attach logs, can provide if needed


(Streetmapp) #4

I’m not in front of my Mac, but can confirm the same behavior on the same Docker version as mentioned in other comments on the same.


(Marcacohen) #5

Same result here, just installed the beta for Mac OS X and daemon won’t start. Below is a log I’ve captured. I note that a previous version was detected and migrated. Wondering if the migration left things in a bad state.
I’ll try rebooting my macbook, which I haven’t done since installing the new docker, just to see if that helps.

(Tidyfinch) #6

I am also seeing this exact same issue on Docker build 8193.


(Tidyfinch) #7

I was able to get this working by completely removing any previous Docker software (boot2docker, etc.) with this guide: https://therealmarv.com/how-to-fully-uninstall-the-offical-docker-os-x-installation/

I removed the Docker Beta, and after rebooting and re-installing the beta, it seems to be working at this time.

What solved it was removing the virtual images docker creates

rm ~/Library/Containers/com.docker.docker/Data/com.docker.driver.amd64-linux/Docker.qcow2

(Douglas Ferguson) #9

I went through all the uninstall steps for boot2docker and tried many other things. The final thing that I tried which fixed the problem was to remove the docker folders in my Library folder

rm -rf ~/Library/Containers/com.docker.*


(Matthewbrahms) #10

Uninstalling using the guide link above and the com.docker.* removal command worked. After uninstall, I reinstalled the latest version and it is working once again.


(Paul Adams) #11

Still an issue with Version 1.11.2-beta15 (build: 9168)


(Gurrumo) #12

I have the same problem, i uninstall and re install again , all is ok now
