How to access PCI device from a Docker container

(Davenso) #1

My host machine has the PCI driver installed for a device. I want to be able to access this same device from within my Docker container (running Ubuntu 14). Is this possible with Docker containers, and do I have to install the driver also in the container if so?

I would assume that since the container shares the same linux kernel as the host, that the container should be able to “see” the driver and hence talk to the device.
