Is Steam Gaming in LXD/LXC Container possible?


Oct 8, 2022
I do own a Lenovo Tiny Proxmox host. Until now I was not able to pass through the iGPU using IOMMU. I read it's possible to bind mount the render device of the host into an LXD/LXC container. Does this mean it would be possible having a working Linux Desktop in such a container including HW access to the graphics and run games on steam? If so, could you please share a link to a guide that describes the process? Thanks!
I succeeded in passing my iGPU to a VM via IOMMU (which did not work in the past) so I decided to go that route. Thanks anyway! :)
Keep in mind that you will eventually run into issues with various anti cheat systems
Thanks for the info. The games I did play did not even complain when I was running them on wine (e.g. Battlefield 4, Northgard). No CS and modern egoshooters are on my list.
