Solution :

This error usually comes up if you do not stop docker properly.

To resolve the error please follow bellow instructions.

service docker stop
cd /var/run/docker/libcontainerd
rm -rf containerd/*
rm -f docker-containerd.pid
service docker start

finally "docker run...." 

To download your image and start the container as usual.

I was trying to run mysql without the passwords turned on however when I ran my below command : # mysqld_safe --skip-grant-tables & I never got my prompt back. ... socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)' Check that mysqld is running and that the socket: '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' exists!

Problem : I installed the docker-machine 0.1.0 and docker-compose 1.1.0 on the Mac OS 10.8.5. Docker-machine is running normally and able to connect by the docker-machine ssh. But can't connect from docker-compose getting following error: $ docker-compose up ... running? If it's at a non-standard location, specify the URL with the DOCKER_HOST environment variable. Why can't I connect? Any clues?
