    Post Get 1050 GTX to work on an Ubuntu Guest -- VirtualBox

    Hi everyone.
    I just set up an Ubuntu Vbox on my Windows laptop. This Vbox's purpose is to run an implementation of the TensorFlow framework.
    Find the project here : https://github.com/cysmith/neural-style-tf
    Since this works much faster on GPU I'd like to make my hosted Ubuntu get to know my Nvidia graphic card.


    I've installed the guest additions provided by Oracle, this does not help at all (I would have been really surprised).


    Does anyone have a hint to make pop my graphic card up in a nice return of lspci ??

    Thank you, I tried many things but since VirtualBox uses its own driver it seems really hard to get this work properly...
    I think this is far beyong my skills. I'm considering setting up a dual boot instead of virtualising Ubuntu.

    Since it is for use with Tensorflow, then just don't use Virtualbox and use LXD instead.
    In that way, you will save some processing power as LXD is much more light to the resources.

    See https://stgraber.org/2017/03/21/cuda-in-lxd/ for instructions.
