Hey, just trying to run the demo, running the server with
flytectl demo start
and I’m getting this output
Copy code
INFO[0000] [0] Couldn't find a config file []. Relying on env vars and pflags.
🧑‍🏭 Bootstrapping a brand new Flyte cluster... 🔨 🔧
Error: Cannot connect to the Docker daemon at unix:///var/run/docker.sock. Is the docker daemon running?
{"json":{},"level":"error","msg":"Cannot connect to the Docker daemon at unix:///var/run/docker.sock. Is the docker daemon running?","ts":"2023-11-21T17:10:31-07:00"}
I’m on MacOS, installed flytectl with homebrew, and Docker Desktop is running, with the resources noted in the tutorial. Any idea why it couldn’t find docker? EDIT: I also ran
export FLYTECTL_CONFIG=~/.flyte/config-sandbox.yaml
like it said

CONTAINER ID   IMAGE     COMMAND   CREATED   STATUS    PORTS     NAMES
docker ps -a
has a bunch of exited ones, but nothing related to flyte

What version of docker do you have installed? I vaguely remember having a problem like this and found that I needed version
>= 20.0.0
.

I got it to work on my personal macbook, but my work one still isn’t having it for some reason. I’ll try some more troubleshooting
