if you get error message after system update:

moonlight: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

just reinstall app:

yay -Rncsu --noconfirm moonlight-qt; yay -Syyu --noconfirm moonlight-qt

I think you don't need to specify many packages, because acceleration already works in Nvidia and AMD/ATI. But at intel, people may not know which package to install for acceleration. I repeat once again, this was added before me. I just added intel-media-driver to optional dependencies after your post. This is done for convenience

Friends, I am grateful for the advice. but! Now let's write strictly to the point. If something doesn't work, suggestions for improvement, etc.

I don't want to sound angry. I just think it should be consistent.

Or maybe there is an official meta package listing every accelerating package as optional dependency?

But I think that doesn't exist and instead every package at that wiki page should be listed as optional.

libva-intel-driver was added even before I became the maintainer of this package

If you added libva-intel-driver to the optdeps why not intel-media-driver as well?
Or the other ones listed here?

Also libva-intel-driver is deprecated by intel-media-driver.

I believe that libva-intel-driver can be left in optdepends. This does not violate the rules and saves time for those who do not know and are faced with the fact that hardware acceleration does not work. Thank you for your help.

You are leaving out packages for other hardware.

There is a wiki page for this:

For example, I didn't know that intel needed libva-intel-driver to have graphics acceleration in moonlight-qt. And thanks to a hint, I found out. I'll leave libva-intel-driver. This is an important hint that should never be deleted!

libva-intel-driver is not actually used directly by this package. So it should not be listed.

People may not know a lot of packages may be useful. That does not justify listing all of them. This is a package for a specific program, not a new distro.

LibertyGM commented on 2024-06-13 23:05 (UTC)

Thanks for the advice. I have taken into account some of your wishes. Why do you think that libva-intel-driver is not needed in optdepends? For example, people may not know that it can be useful to them.
