How to use mipi csi camera inside docker container?

Hello,

I would like to use mipi csi raspberry pi v2 camera inside docker container. I pulled the l4t-ml:r32.5.0 docker image on my jetson nano module. I use custom carrier board and my jetpack version is 4.5.0. I created my container like below.

sudo docker run -it --gpus all -v /home/nvidia/docker_yolov5/:/yolov5 -e DISPLAY=:0 -v /tmp/.X11-unix:/tmp/.X11-unix -v /dev/video0:/dev/video0 --device=/dev/video0:/dev/video0 nvcr.io/nvidia/l4t-ml:r32.5.0-py3

When I type below command, I get the following error. My docker container creation might be wrong. How can I fix this problem?

Thanks in advance.

Did you check if any device by v4l2-ctl --list-devices before run the docker?

The device is listed like this,

vi-output, imx219 7-0010 (platform:54080000.vi:0):
/dev/video0

Could you try below command.

sudo docker run --net=host --runtime nvidia --rm --ipc=host -v /tmp/.X11-unix/:/tmp/.X11-unix/ -v /tmp/argus_socket:/tmp/argus_socket --cap-add SYS_PTRACE -e DISPLAY=$DISPLAY -it nvcr.io/nvidia/l4t-base:r32.5.0

Hello @ShaneCCC ,
