Re: [libvirt] PCI devices passthough to LXC containers using libvirt



Hi

Thanks for the reply.

I think the links that you provided show 
how to deal with pci devices in case the hypervisor is kvm.
Please correct me if I am wrong.

But I am using LXC containers.I have skimmed through
the libvirt lxc driver code and found no functionality of
allowing specified devices into a container exists
other than currently where only hard coded devices are allowed
which can be seen in the file lxc_controller.c

  struct cgroup_device_policy devices[] = {
        {'c', LXC_DEV_MAJ_MEMORY, LXC_DEV_MIN_NULL},
        {'c', LXC_DEV_MAJ_MEMORY, LXC_DEV_MIN_ZERO},
        {'c', LXC_DEV_MAJ_MEMORY, LXC_DEV_MIN_FULL},
        {'c', LXC_DEV_MAJ_MEMORY, LXC_DEV_MIN_RANDOM},
        {'c', LXC_DEV_MAJ_MEMORY, LXC_DEV_MIN_URANDOM},
        {'c', LXC_DEV_MAJ_TTY, LXC_DEV_MIN_TTY},
        {'c', LXC_DEV_MAJ_TTY, LXC_DEV_MIN_PTMX},
        {0,   0, 0}};


Please confirm this or let me know if there is any other interface libvirt_lxc 
provides to allow specific pci/other devices into container.

Thanks in advance

Regards
Devendra

You shouldn't directly add the above xml to guest xml configuration, here is a usage,
it should be helpful for you:

http://libvirt.org/formatdomain.html#elementsUSB

Good Luck!
