I'm trying to get used to
systemd, because it seems to be the way that Debian is going.
I want to run Xorg in a
chroot on hardware, rather than using networking (which seems to be the canonical way of doing it in a
systemd container), because I don't want to install an X server on my host system. I want the host to be a thin, low-maintenance OS.
It is my understanding that
/dev, and therefore does not allow access to hardware.
Running a standard
chroot seems to work fine in practice, though I am not sure if there will be any subtle problems with this.
Aside from the guest having direct access to the hardware, is running a "real" chroot on a systemd machine a bad idea? If so, what problems will it cause?
If it is bad practice, is there a way to do this with
systemd-nspawn; such as some "unsafe" flag? I'm not finding one on the
man page, but according to this page, there is a
--share-system flag; which doesn't work for me.
