Hi ranch folks! I'm running rancher desktop on a Mac Apple Silicon. I installed following this tutorial: https://blog.brazdeikis.io/today-i-learned/install-docker-on-mac-without-docker-desktop/ Everything works well, but I just updated a few minutes ago and now I'm getting an annoying message in "Diagnostics":
The file ~/.docker/cli-plugins/docker-compose should be a symlink to ~/.rd/bin/docker-compose, but points to /opt/homebrew/opt/docker-compose/bin/docker-compose.
My docker-compose comes from brew so this is normal, but I didn't know I shouldn't use it and instead use the one shipped with rancher-desktop. Should I just change the link and point to
~/.rd/bin/docker-compose
? Or is there something else going on here?

It is just a diagnostic alerting you to this fact. If you intend to use
docker-compose
from brew, you can "Mute" this diagnostic. We provide the "Mute" functionality exactly for this reason: not every diagnostic is relevant for every setup/configuration, so you can simply turn it off.

An example where this warning would be relevant: Somebody may have used Docker Desktop before, and switched to Rancher Desktop, but without uninstalling Docker Desktop. Since they no longer update Docker Desktop, their
docker-compose
version will slowly become out-of-date over time without them noticing. This diagnostic tells them that Rancher Desktop may have shipped a newer version, but it is not the one they are using.
But it is totally fine to manage this yourself and mute the diagnostic because it then doesn't apply to you
