Well i could include the patch, but then it would break building on lts. The proper fix would be that the blackmagic upstream code would use the proper function name depending on the target kernel.

@Houtworm just rgrep for wait_queue_t and replace by wait_queue_entry_t ; a recursive sed might also work

@rskennymore Very nice, You are a smart man :)

Any chance you could share these edited .c files?

I am struggling to get it working on arch, I am currently using an Ubuntu Dual boot just for the intensity 4K.

Also do these edits make it possible to use it on the latest kernel? or do you use the LTS kernel?

It's only broken because of this:

I hand-jammed in a fix by just manually editing blackmagic_gate.c and bm_util.c in the source tarball and rebuilding. Seems to work fine

Changing some names around in the kernel... I emailed support through the upstream link

Should i make linux-lts and linux-lts-headers a hard dependency ?

fthiery commented on 2017-09-22 14:33

Btw LTS is 4.9.50-1-lts

fthiery commented on 2017-09-22 14:33

As specified, this driver only works on the lts kernel. Other flavors might work, but if not you may report it to

Latest version doesn't seem to work. Im getting the unable to detect device in decklink. The card shows fine under lspci. And firmware says its up to date. Does this require a newer kernel? Im on 4.12

@fthiery Thanks, got video capture working. Still working on audio.

@LIONHEAR be sure to flash the board with Blackmagic Firmware Updater and reboot; had the same issue too, but after a reboot the device is detected in Blackmagic Desktop Video setup and gst-launch works again.

@fthiery No I don't. It says No Desktop Video Device Detected.
