OpenSuse solution to enable MiniKube to create Kubernetes locally

I watched the Kubernetes video that I just shared and using OpenSuse I had an error when I followed the instructions. He warned that an error was likely and I certainly had one. After I installed MiniKube it gave an error when I tried to do the official Kubernetes documentation next step. This is just to help out anyone who may want to do this as well. It probably affects other platforms besides OpenSuse.

After it asks you to type minikube start in Konsole you will get an error. Then in Konsole (terminal) type this: docker system prune, it will go to the next line showing it worked. Then type this: minikube delete. It deleted minikube and then when I typed minikube start it worked properly. Crazy I know but it works.

Also, you need to add a repository for Kubernetes in Yast Software Repositories to be able to use Zypper to install it. I took the URL information and when I clicked on add at the bottom of that window, I put in the URL information including the https. It gave me an error but seemed to successfully get set up and working. You can see this in the screenshot with this post. I’m sorry the image is so large but it wouldn’t be easily seen at the default suggested size.
