Error: Unable to run docker-compose on Apple M1 Silicon

Issue Summary

My laptop is a new Apple Silicon M1 so I installed the preview version of Docker for Apple Silicon. When I git clone the Redash repo and then try to set it up using Docker via docker-compose up -d it runs into this error:

E: Unable to locate package msodbcsql17
ERROR: Service ‘server’ failed to build : The command ‘/bin/sh -c apt-get update && apt-get install -y curl gnupg build-essential pwgen libffi-dev sudo git-core wget libpq-dev g++ unixodbc-dev xmlsec1 libssl-dev default-libmysqlclient-dev freetds-dev libsasl2-dev unzip apt-transport-https ca-certificates libsasl2-modules-gssapi-mit && curl https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc | apt-key add - && curl https://packages.microsoft.com/config/debian/10/prod.list > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mssql-release.list && apt-get update && ACCEPT_EULA=Y apt-get install -y msodbcsql17 && apt-get clean && rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/*’ returned a non-zero code: 100

I’ve tried uninstalling/reinstalling/cleaning and what was suggested here: Unable to docker-compose build but did not work. Might have something to do with mysql limitations with Docker for M1: Apple M1 Tech Preview | Docker Documentation Can anyone think of any workarounds?

Technical details:

Are you using the M1 compatible docker installation? Or are you running the x86 version via translation? I also use an M1 laptop and have done both but it works better with Rosetta2 (translation) because the Apple Silicone compiled version is just unstable.

I am using the M1 Docker Preview. Do you have instructions on how I can run the x86 version via translation? When I try to download the non-M1 version it say there’s an incompatibility problem. Not sure what the next steps are exactly to set it up like you have. Thank you!!

You’re right. It shows me an error when I try now.

I can’t get Docker on M1 running at all without a bunch of kernel panics. Best to wait until it’s no longer in preview before attempting this again.

T I have the same problem. Have you solved it?

No, had to use my old laptop.

I finally got this working on my M1 Macbook Air. I’m using the Docker RC1 that was released on 18 Mar 2021. Version 3.3.0 (62029). And the latest tip of Redash master.

Background

At first I couldn’t start Docker at all. The application launched and then crashed my entire system. I followed these instructions to fix my bad installation. After a complete wipe of Docker, installing Big Sur updates, updating my xcode tools, and reinstalling the latest RC candidate my Docker opened normally :partying_face:

Changes

When I first ran docker-compose up -d I had the same error as OP:

E: Unable to locate package msodbcsql17
ERROR: Service ‘server’ failed to build : The command ‘/bin/sh -c apt-get update && apt-get install -y curl gnupg build-essential pwgen libffi-dev sudo git-core wget libpq-dev g++ unixodbc-dev xmlsec1 libssl-dev default-libmysqlclient-dev freetds-dev libsasl2-dev unzip apt-transport-https ca-certificates libsasl2-modules-gssapi-mit && curl https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc | apt-key add - && curl https://packages.microsoft.com/config/debian/10/prod.list > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mssql-release.list && apt-get update && ACCEPT_EULA=Y apt-get install -y msodbcsql17 && apt-get clean && rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/*’ returned a non-zero code: 100

However, since I’m not connecting to a Microsoft SQL Server right now I just modified the Dockerfile to skip this installation.

After this docker-compose up -d worked fine.

Then I installed NodeJS using an installer from their website and built the frontend assets:

npm install && npm run build

And created the database:

docker-compose run --rm server create_db

I added Redash’s own metadata DB as a data source and ran a quick query:

Performance is much slower than on my Intel Mac. But it’s suitable for basic development (especially front-end). The npm run build command is noticeably faster.

After commenting out the MYSQL ODBC driver I’m still hitting another error:

Can you share your complete Dockerfile?

[EDIT] I ran into this issue as well but it was a typo in my Dockerfile. I don’t remember it exactly but perhaps I can spot it in yours.

Here is what my diff looks like (copied from yours)

Gotcha. Try building the docker container with skip_ds_deps=1.
