Thank you for report, Hekuran!

I prepared new tarball and added gcc10 fixes. Compilation works again (tested), can somebody please test the new tarball?

I' not able to build. i even tried 2018's v2.3.0, couldn't that either. (I have a ThinkPad X200, core 2 duo P8600). Here are my makepkg logs:

For hardware decoding in chromium there is a feature missing. According to comment #324 in chromium-vaapi requires 'VAProfileNone` which is not supported?

My Vainfo reports

vainfo: VA-API version: 1.7 (libva 2.7.1)
vainfo: Driver version: Intel i965 driver for Intel(R) GM45 Express Chipset - 2.4.0
vainfo: Supported profile and entrypoints
      VAProfileMPEG2Simple            : VAEntrypointVLD
      VAProfileMPEG2Main              : VAEntrypointVLD
      VAProfileH264ConstrainedBaseline: VAEntrypointVLD
      VAProfileH264Main               : VAEntrypointVLD
      VAProfileH264High               : VAEntrypointVLD

Is it possible to add this into the driver?

Driver version 2.3.0 and 2.4.0 both work with Manjaro kernel 4.19.122 LTS. They don't work with 5.4.40 LTS and 5.6.10 as of writing. I keep the 4.19 for now.

Thanks. Downgrading succeeded but the problem persists. I downgraded mesa too but it didn'n matter either. Not sure how to proceed.

-edit downgrading from 5.6 to 4.19 solved the problem. Will test other kernels.

just build manually, download PKGBUILD, change that in PKGBUILD and build new package:

pkgver = 2.3.0
source =
sha256sums = 59754576de8bc69412ca0554b3a28406b0562cbf2616eca0d3c261528e81c641

older sources are still available

@alium thanks for you reply; however I can't downgrade.

pamac downgrade libva-intel-driver-g45-h264 says Unable to downgrade. Is that correct?
