If you try to deploy Milvus with Docker, Milvus only supports the deployment on Windows Docker Desktop WSL 2 backend. Milvus cannot be built from source code on Windows or macOS. Use Ubuntu (18.04 or higher) or CentOS (7 or higher) to build Milvus from source code.

Yep, We are also trying to refine how to build and dev on top of milvus, please see https://github.com/milvus-io/milvus/blob/master/DEVELOPMENT.md#building-milvus-with-docker

You can give it a try to test if it works. However, the Milvus team recommends Ubuntu 18.04+

Should be working, but we don’t do any solid test.
A way to solve is using docker
