Context ...some of us beta testing the freeCodeCamp Solana Curriculum and here is the link to the news/beta-program:


We are running into an issue, while installing solana-install-init inside a docker container on Apple M1.

We have opened an issue at freeCodeCamp/solana-curriculum github and here is the link to it:


Docker command:

RUN sh -c "$(curl -sSfL https://release.solana.com/stable/install)"

Docker error:

 => ERROR [13/19] RUN sh -c "$(curl -sSfL https://release.solana.com/stable/install)"  2.5s
 > [13/19] RUN sh -c "$(curl -sSfL https://release.solana.com/stable/install)":

To get this working you will need to download the install file manually and run it locally.

To do this:

  • Navigate to https://release.solana.com/stable/install in your browser to download
  • Save the file in your solana-curriculum project directory
  • In Dockerfile replace RUN sh -c "$(curl -sSfL https://release.solana.com/stable/install)" with CMD install

Now when you try rebuild the container it will use the local install file and should work.
