How to get a Bluetooth device in a container?

  • Hi,

    I tried to get my internal Bluetooth device working in my docker container. After installing some bluetooth packages i was able to find the device in the terminal:

    root@omv-nas:~# hcitool dev
    hci0 F0:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX

    root@omv-nas:~# sudo ls -l /sys/class/bluetooth | grep 1-8
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Jul 26 20:31 hci0 -> ../../devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:15.0/usb1/1-8/1-8:1.0/bluetooth/hci0
    root@omv-nas:~# cd /var

    So i tried to setup my container by using portioner in the device section (tab runtime & resources) with same entry in host & container "/dev/hci0"

    But when i try to start the container, an error message "device not found" is displayed. Also i'm wondering why "bluetoothctl" does not give any output when using the command "devices". Do y need any several bluetooth / usb drivers for the OMV standard installation?

    Does anyone has an idea how to get my BT Device working in the container?

    Best Regards
