@fthiery That's because intel-media-sdk now ships limfx as shared library ( instead of a static one (libmfx.a), and the library name is hardcoded in the source code. I've reflected this change here and now the package is building fine.

This does not build on my system (at least with, what am i doing wrong here ?

Important note:

  • in short: the next time you update your system, use this command: # pacman -Syu intel-media-driver. If you're using intel-media-driver-git you're not affected and you can skip this note.

  • the long story: intel-media-driver is now in the [community] official repository (it is a dependency of intel-media-sdk, which in turn is a dependency of this package). intel-media-driver from the official repository changed the pkgver major number, causing it to be seen as a downgrade by pacman (and AUR helpers of course). This means that pacman will not automatically pull/install intel-media-driver from official repositories when you simply use the usual -Syu. You need to manually specify intel-media-driver alongside with the -Syu command as shown above.

@francoism90 The current stable release and also the git master branch are deprecated because upstream developers have switched from cmake to meson. The current development is being made in the topic_linux_and_window branch, which will be merged into the master branch somewhere in the future.

These patches addresses build and install issues that I have encountered. While upstream do not completely move on to meson I will be using them. The patch that fixes intel msdk directories can now be replaced by exporting the pkgconfig environment variable. The libdrm header issue is not fixed even in the topic_linux_and_window branch.

@dbermond Could you give more details about this package?

Why aren't these patches upstream?
