Installing custom build of Docker

Hey,

I’m finding Compose is attempting to recreate some containers, however the issue with removing containers is preventing this from happening, thus failing the test. As a result, I have two questions:

a) Can we somehow disable preventing the removal of containers?

or

b) How do we go about installing our own build of Docker as a workaround (if this would work?)? I have attempted using the usual channels of installation, however each channel reports back that docker is installed (not requested as requisite service).

Many thanks.
