Minikube: Exiting due to RSRC_INSUFFICIENT_REQ_MEMORY ⛔

After many months, I tried starting Minikube(minikube start) on my machine to see the error in the title and expect this to happen with you in future. So, posting resolution here for your and also my reference. If you are not aware of what Minikube is, here's a short intro. Courtesy: :)

Minikube is a tool that makes it easy to run Kubernetes locally. Minikube runs a single-node Kubernetes cluster inside a Virtual Machine (VM) on your laptop for users looking to try out Kubernetes or develop with it day-to-day.

Minikube Features

Minikube supports the following Kubernetes features:

ConfigMaps and Secrets
Container Runtime: Docker, CRI-O, and containerd
Enabling CNI (Container Network Interface)

Error resolution

It's simple

minikube delete

🔥  Deleting "minikube" in virtualbox ...
💀  Removed all traces of the "minikube" cluster.
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

and then

minikube start
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Additionally, if you wish to run minikube on Virtual box, use this

minikube start --driver=virtualbox 
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Still seeing errors, do a full cleanup with the below command and start again

minikube delete --all --purge
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
