I suggest building in a clean chroot. If you are having problems even with libva-intel-driver there might be an issue with your setup, make sure libva and libdrm are up-to date.

The only difference between this package and libva-intel-driver is that this builds the driver with support for wrapping the intel-hybrid-codec-driver. This lets them both be used at once.

intel-hybrid-codec-driver contains partial acceleration for multiple combinations of iGPUs and codecs. For Haswell 8-bit HEVC/h.265 decoding is provided.

Hope this is of some help

I have xorg installed by the way not wayland.

I installed this package on a laptop with Nvidia k2100m graphics and i7-4900mq CPU. It doesn't seem to work.

user@host# LIBVA_DRIVER_NAME=i965 vainfo libva error: /usr/lib/dri/ init failed vaInitialize failed with error code -1 (unknown libva error),exit user@host# LIBVA_DRIVER_NAME=hybrid vainfo libva error: /usr/lib/dri/ has no function __vaDriverInit_1_0 vaInitialize failed with error code -1 (unknown libva error),exit

after that I tried to remove this package and install libva-intel-driver instead, still the same error with "init failed, unknown libva..." I have libva 2.4.0-1 installed

On a side note, on a Haswell CPU like mine, what is the difference between this driver and "libva-intel-driver"? I read this is just compiled with a hybrid flag on the same source? What is the hybrid part doing? I thought libva-intel-driver is providing hardware acceleration already?

@sparsarc This driver is only useful for Haswell -> Skylake so you should instead use libva-intel-driver or intel-media-driver from the extra repo

Is this driver required for intel UHD620?

There is an extra patch in the arch package to fix a bug with latest mesa, see

Could we get it included here too?

It fails to build with intel-gpu-tools installed. I read that in prepare that there is an extra step if this package is installed. Removing it allows me to build the package.

It used to have VP9 decoding listed at the very end, but as you can see it's now gone.

@GalaxyMaster please can you post the output of the vainfo command from community/libva-utils

GalaxyMaster commented on 2017-11-16 16:02

After upgrading libva, libva-hybrid-codec-driver and this to 2.0.0 I lost VP9 decode on my Braswell system. I tried downgrading libva-hybrid-codec-driver to the previous release but that did not help.
