All my applications work fine except Plex, which does not start after installing. I tried restarting it from the Portainer and I get this error.

Failure Cannot restart container 9340750cffee5xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxdc395736261ca75362xxxxxxxxxxxx: linux runtime spec devices: error gathering device information while adding custom device "/dev/dri": not a device node

I already tried uninstalling and reinstalling plex but it did not work. What should do to fix this?
