Silly question but what systems have people been getting openlane to compile on? I've had trouble with both WSL Ubuntu and Debian. I think it's Docker related but I've no experience with that so don't know what to fix.

I've used it on Ubuntu but not WSL. What error are you getting? Specifics might be easier to fix.

what kind of issues? I only have tried ubuntu but as long as I follow the instructions in the readme I've not had any issues.

I seem to have gotten it working in a Debian VM but in Ubuntu WLS I get
docker: Error response from daemon: OCI runtime create failed: container_linux.go:349: starting container process caused "process_linux.go:319: getting the final child's pid from pipe caused \"EOF\"": unknown.
make: *** [Makefile:119: build-pdk] Error 125
when making the pdk. The Docker daemon itself just spits out
stream copy error: reading from a closed fifo
which isn't very helpful

Thanks, unfortunately docker versions before 19.3.08 don't seem to be available anymore, but I don't have much experience installing older packages so I could be missing something

Running docker in WSL is tricky since WSL itself is a VM. Does the hello-world docker work?

No. Looks like docker is definitely the problem. I've got everything working in a VM for now so I'll play with that in the mean time.

I can run OpenLANE inside WSL2 with Ubuntu 18.04 I had to install the Docker Desktop WSL2 backend following this instructions: https://docs.docker.com/docker-for-windows/wsl/
