failed to retrieve docker-init version

I’m using docker installed from the stock obs repos for tumblweed and I’ve got this error showing up in my dockerd log:

level=warning msg="failed to retrieve docker-init version: exec:  \"docker-init\": executable file not found in $PATH" 

cat /etc/os-release

There are a few related posts:

But they convoluted the my issue with something else.


What you don’t say is whether docker works or not…

Sorry, docker works for the most part. I’m getting a weird issue where every ~10 builds or so

docker build

hangs and weird things happen on my system. I just noticed that message in the logs and wanted to see if anyone had any ideas how to fix that before I try and troubleshoot some weird stuff I’m seeing.

FWIW I see the same warning, but I’m not building anything, just running a container on my server.

It is a “warning” and not an error, I’ve seen in another thread it could be that the binary was built incorrectly. I’ll file a bug report anyway to reduce the noise in the log file. Thanks!
