Any advice on this, please? I’ve uninstalled and re-installed Rancher Desktop App It now takes 10 mins to start and eventually times out with :-
Copy code
Error: /Applications/Rancher <http://Desktop.app/Contents/Resources/resources/darwin/lima/bin/limactl|Desktop.app/Contents/Resources/resources/darwin/lima/bin/limactl> exited with code 1
…and any further attempts beyond that with the original error code :-
Copy code
<http://Desktop.app/Contents/Resources/resources/darwin/lima/bin/limactl|Desktop.app/Contents/Resources/resources/darwin/lima/bin/limactl> exited with code 255
Any pointers on this one, please?

Hmm, we could try manually deleting the VM to try to unwedge it. Quit Rancher Desktop, and run
LIMA_HOME="~/Library/Application Support/rancher-desktop/lima" "/Applications/Rancher <http://Desktop.app/Contents/Resources/resources/darwin/lima/bin/limactl|Desktop.app/Contents/Resources/resources/darwin/lima/bin/limactl>" delete -f 0
to try to get rid of it?

@proud-jewelry-46860 Thanks for the response - really appreciated. That
0
instance doesn’t exist. I don’t have ANY instances.
Copy code
$ LIMA_HOME="~/Library/Application Support/rancher-desktop/lima" "/Applications/Rancher <http://Desktop.app/Contents/Resources/resources/darwin/lima/bin/limactl|Desktop.app/Contents/Resources/resources/darwin/lima/bin/limactl>" delete -f 0

Are there any manual locations I should be looking to completely remove Rancher-Desktop and try again. I ask that because uninstalling and re-installing hasn’t worked and when I configure Rancher Desktop for no Kubernetes, no Traefik and just containerd, I’m still getting errors.
p
Odd. The manual location is
~/Library/Application Support/rancher-desktop/
, basically (unless I made a typo somewhere…); that's why it needed to be on the command line.

@proud-jewelry-46860 - Thanks for that. Uninstalling Rancher Desktop, manually deleting that directory and re-installing appears to have fixed the issue. 🙂

Glad that worked for you, but it's still odd that a factory reset didn't wipe that for you :(
