Description Vincent Batts 2014-05-30 18:12:14 UTC
Description of problem:
docker daemon on RHEL6 (and centos) is patched to launch with 'lxc' execdriver, instead of the docker 'native' libcontainer

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ docker version
Client version: 0.11.1
Client API version: 1.11
Go version (client): go1.2.1
Git commit (client): fb99f99/0.11.1
Server version: 0.11.1
Server API version: 1.11
Git commit (server): fb99f99/0.11.1
Go version (server): go1.2.1
Last stable version: 0.11.1

The reason we had mad this switch was due to the network bridge setup for libcontainer had not worked correctly at first. This has since been fixed upstream.

Comment 1 Vincent Batts 2014-05-30 18:35:31 UTC
Once this update it made, if you would like to continue using the 'lxc' driver, just add "-e lxc" to the other_args variable in /etc/sysconfig/docker
