I am using the below command.

It is displaying below error message on Manjaro Deepin ( Arch Linux )
E1002 00:02:24.832976 26272 start.go:143] Error starting host: Temporary Error: Error configuring auth on host: OS type not recognized.
I tried it on VirtualBox with Ubuntu 16.04 and VT-X/AMD-v.
 I gave even Virtualbox preference to VT-X/AMD-v enable.Can anyone help me with this ?
Thank you

Uninstall/delete all minikube related files on your Linux

minikube delete
rm /usr/local/minikube
rm -rf ~/.minikube

And then start minikube again

This is on Linux right?
Yeesss these commands are to be executed if you're running minikube on linux
For Windows? Windows 10 to be specific.

For Windows 10:

  • Do minikube delete
  • Delete C:\Users\username\.minikube folder.
  • Do minikube start again.
