Thank you very much for your script.

Since I am new to virtualisation and a bit a purist, I hoped to not use
docker or at least understand why I should use it.
Could you please tell a word or two about it?
Is it only because of the workaround you mention in the script?

With your script I have successfully created a VM and installed
nvidia-detect but it reports:
# nvidia-detect 
Detected NVIDIA GPUs:
00:04.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation Device
[10de:1b06] (rev a1) Uh oh. Your card is not supported by any driver
version up to 340.102. A newer driver may add support for your card.
Newer driver releases may be available in backports, unstable or
experimental.

I hope to have time to do further tests tomorrow by changing your
script to use Debian 9 and its newer drivers.


Thanky again and best regards,
Ramon
