Docker fails with "no space left on device"

Enonic version: 6.2
OS: El Capitan

I’m trying to follow the Getting Started Guide for Docker, but it gets an error:

      Error pulling image (latest) from, Untar re-exec error: exit status 1: output: write /enonic-xp/system/com/enonic/xp/admin-ui/6.2.1/admin-ui-6.2.1.jar: no space left on device

It says no space left on device, but I have plenty of room on my hard drive. When I do docker images then this is what I get:

mla-MacBook-Pro:~ mla$ docker images

It’s probably using too much memory. @rmy changed the memory settings some weeks ago, but have changed it back now. The new (better) memory settings is applied in 6.2.1.

Docker on OSX uses a virtual linux machine to run it’s containers in. My guess is that it is this machine that is full. if you do a “docker images -a” you’ll se a whole lot of untaged images with repository and tag named “”. Try deleting them.

Take a look at this post for a command on deleting untaged images:

I somehow managed to get it working shortly after I made this thread and I should have updated it. But thanks for the info. I’m sure the jimhoskins page will come in handy in the future.
