vm-xorg (X.org, Hauppauge tv card? Nvidia?)

I'm not yet sure if I want to run X.org itself inside a container. I might as well run X.org on the host (avoiding problems with my nvidia 3d acceleration and getting my Hauppauge TV working), and running applications like thunderbird, chrome, pidgin, vlc from inside a container, using X forwarding (have to check if that is all feasible..)


Running X.org inside a container

Links to running X.org inside a container:

These are the lines to insert into the vm-xorg/config file:

lxc.cgroup.devices.allow = c 1:1 rwm # dev/mem
lxc.cgroup.devices.allow = c 13:63 rwm # dev/input/mice

Running X.org on the host (setting up X forwarding on the client)

using %DISPLAY variable + .xhosts, .xauthority, …

Unsorted notes

could not open the device file /dev/nvidia0
