Docker and Docker Compose on AMD OSX Hackintosh via Docker Machine

Introduction

Docker.app will complain about incompatible processor, so we will use Docker Machine.

Instalation

Download Docker for Mac (Docker.app). It contains some binaries that are necessary.

brew install virtualbox docker-machine

# Normally, those links are created automatically by running Docker.app,
# but it quits on us too early, so we need to do this manually
ln -s "/Applications/Docker.app/Contents//Resources/bin/docker-compose" /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
ln -s "/Applications/Docker.app/Contents//Resources/bin/docker-credential-desktop" /usr/local/bin/docker-credential-desktop
ln -s "/Applications/Docker.app/Contents//Resources/bin/docker-credential-osxkeychain" /usr/local/bin/docker-credential-osxkeychain

You can also use brew to install docker and doccker-compose and it should work without linking above.

Running

docker-machine create
eval $(docker-machine env)
docker run hello-world
docker-compose up

Intel hackintoshes for laptops are retiring, there's absolutely no point in getting 2020 rigs just to install Hackintosh lol. Recent new-gen desktop ones also pose performance issues due to asshole CPU architecture aka "bigLITTLE" as well as lack of proper scheduling driver though. Apple is gonna put an end to x86 MacOS so better forget about Hackintoshing and get a real Mac instead of wasting time on this shit lol.

@johnalbert-dot-py per my experiences, you can stay on 12.0(Monterey) to use virtual box and Minikube, both docker and vm still work on it, or switch to other OS as others suggested, no need to consume any time on a solution as Hacktiontosh is retiring even in intel build. in my M1 Max macbook, I can say the experience is better now as you can use orbstack to run both arm and x64 docker images.

In fact, you can still use Minikube on Ventura and Sonoma, however, the performance is a bit uhhh as the only provider for Minikube on Ryzentosh is VirtualBox cuz AppleHV is not supported at all lol.

@AlphaNecron can you run windows vm without error on Sonama/Ventura with virtual box 6.x?

I am also interested in answer to this . I was not aware there was a way to successfully run virtual box vms on an amd hackintosh due to osx not supporting AMD/SVM. Of course intel works fine as it used vt-d and osx is programmed to work on intel.

I think i might have seen / got working a non svm method of running a virtual machine but performance was poor. Is it this what we are taking about ? Sorry if I don’t use precisely the right technical terms as a these matters are at the limit of my understanding.

I guess Proxmox as host and Macos as guest with a gpu passthrough, currently is the better way to setup ryzentosh. For the docker in this case use separate vm with any linux distro and just mount folder over nfs.

@sergeycherepanov Do I understand you correctly?

  • I can use Ubuntu as a host OS.
  • Use Proxmox to run MacOS.
  • Use Docker in Ubuntu.
  • Share Docker between Ubuntu host OS and MacOS in VM?

@kroegen yes, but only Debian supported by Proxmox VE, or you need to install Proxmox VE directly from the iso. Also, I can recommend check the guides by Nick on him blog https://www.nicksherlock.com/category/proxmox/
