Docker error permission denied and where do the images end up after pull?
I have two questions.
1) I get an error when I run:
karl@karl-laptop:~o docker pull node 2015/04/29 01:39:41 Post http:///var/run/docker.sock/images/create?fromImage=banode&tag=: dial unix /var/run/docker.sock: permission denied
2) When I pull down images, where are they located?
