Sysbox-runc is not working as runtime for docker in Ubuntu

I attempted to use sysbox-runc as the runtime for Docker on Ubuntu. sysbox-runc is operational. Nevertheless, an error occurred when I tried to create a container using Docker.

The command I was using: docker run --runtime=sysbox-runc nginx

docker: Error response from daemon: failed to create shim task: OCI runtime create failed: container_linux.go:425: starting container process caused: process_linux.go:607: container init caused: process_linux.go:578: handleReqOp caused: rootfs_init_linux.go:366: failed to mkdirall /var/lib/sysbox/shiftfs/2e6d4302-28cd-4d9d-827e-6088b8b34e89/var/lib/kubelet: mkdir /var/lib/sysbox/shiftfs/2e6d4302-28cd-4d9d-827e-6088b8b34e89/var/lib/kubelet: value too large for defined data type caused: mkdir /var/lib/sysbox/shiftfs/2e6d4302-28cd-4d9d-827e-6088b8b34e89/var/lib/kubelet: value too large for defined data type: unknown.

  1. The same works fine with the default runtime runc.
  2. Running docker and sysbox-runc as root.

Has anyone come across this before please?
