Some time last month new docker for mac shipped with LinuxKit:
$ screen ~/Library/Containers/com.docker.docker/Data/com.docker.driver.amd64-linux/tty linuxkit-025000000001:~# uname -a Linux linuxkit-025000000001 4.9.75-linuxkit-aufs #1 SMP Tue Jan 9 10:58:17 UTC 2018 x86_64 Linux
But eventually you’ll discover
/dev/log is missing. Apparently
syslog is not running too.
So one way to get the log working again is to run syslog:
Which will create
/dev/log socket and write to
/var/log/messages by default and you can continue tailing that log file like before.
