Correction: only the literal portion of the driver - the component that is loaded into the kernel and talks to the hardware - would be provided by the host system. The portion that compiles OpenCL would need to be inside the container, and perhaps provided by the Docker image. Since JtR format failures with specific driver versions are generally caused by miscompiles, this should allow us to avoid those. However, I guess the difference in versions of portions of the "driver" could sometimes be problematic. Alexander
