I'm not sure about cryptomining but should work. The only problem that
may hit is related to if your GPU needs 3rd party kernel modules to
If not then you should be fine. If so then it's harder to do that on an
Atomic Host (see ) vs a classic system where DKMS or akmods work.
Ah yes, good point - I didn't think of that - maybe I should do a
conventional install first, get the first container working and get some
idea about the issues before repeating the exercise with the Atomic
server . .
