It’s a problem for my students who purchased the new Apple hardware that uses Apple Silicon because they can’t install a Docker MySQL instance. However, there is Homebrew formula that works on macOS Big Sur and the new Apple silicon. It supports:
- Intel Silicon: macOS Big Sur, Catalina, and Mojave
- Apple Silicon: macOS Big Sur
The Homebrew Formula does have conflicts that you may need to avoid. It is a solution for those with the new Apple silicon.
As always, I hope this helps those looking for a solution.
