@Andy777, I'm not sure what you mean by your last post.


@Luke, I just tried testing VA-API using `vainfo` and received the output:

> vainfo
error: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set in the environment.
error: can't connect to X server!
libva info: VA-API version 0.39.4
libva info: va_getDriverName() returns -1
libva error: va_getDriverName() failed with unknown libva error,driver_name=(null)
vaInitialize failed with error code -1 (unknown libva error),exit

From this it doesn't look like the P2000 supports VA-API at all. Is there a way to install the required nvidia drivers within the docker container?

@Codeh @dyslexicjedi @Andy777


I've added you all to the conversation about testing hardware detection on Linux including Docker.

Please read through there, run the tests and then we can see what needs to be addressed.
