Getting docker daemon not running error

I am trying to get docker working on my sys
However, not able to

Steps to reproduce the issue that I am facing:

  1. Installed EPEL on 6.5 RHEL
  2. Installed docker-io
  3. Able to run “docker” command
  4. When running “docker run -i -t fedora /bin/bash” command using without root, getting below error:

    FATA[0000] Post http:///var/run/docker.sock/v1.17/containers/create:
    dial unix /var/run/docker.sock
    http:///var/run/docker.sock/v1.17/containers/create:%20dial%20unix%20/var/run/docker.sock :
    permission denied.
    Are you trying to connect to a TLS-enabled daemon without TLS?

However, with root getting diff error like below for the same command:

FATA[0000] Cannot connect to the Docker daemon. Is 'docker -d' running on this host?

    A RHEL 6.5, also termed Update 5, is from 21 November 2013 and comes with kernel 2.6.32-431.

    That seems quite an old kernel for docker to be installed and run successfully. Docker would need at least a 3.10 kernel.
