Information

Relevant log output:

2016-03-31T12:21:15.396165-07 Info - Bundle path: /Applications/Docker.app
2016-03-31T12:21:22.783937-07 Info - privileged installation of com.docker.vmnetd successful

  • I don’t have pinata… documentation/bug report docs should describe where to find it?

Steps to reproduce the behavior

  1. Download Docker beta.
  2. Install from .dmg.
  3. After getting to the point where I need to give system permissions the install fails as described.

Cannot install Docker App 1.11.1-beta11 (6974) on Mac 10.11.4 (Build 15E65)
Cannot install Docker App 1.11.1-beta11 (6974) on Mac 10.11.4 (Build 15E65)
(Synic) #2

Found a fix for this:

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

Then, start Docker.app again.


(Fgrillo) #3

This do not fix my case.

I don’t even have com.docker.vmnetd.plist on the LaunchDaemons folder.

I had docker toolbox installed and was using it with a VMWare machine. Tried Docker for Mac, had different version issues.
Uninstalled everything and then installed only Docker for Mac that started giving this error. On the first install I didn’t had this issue

Anyone can help?
