[Nvidia users PLEASE READ]

To get hardware acceleration working, you also have to install https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/libva-vdpau-driver-chromium

Disclaimer : VP8/9 video decoding will not work!

GeForce GTX 750 SE and after support HEVC and VP9 video decoding but VDPAU,the only VAAPI backend available for Nvidia users with libva-vdpau-driver, doesn't support VP8/9.

Fedora included VAAPI patch in their official Chromium package. https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/chromium/c/278c62709d1dba5883c3b69047706837bb402bd7?branch=master

@digitalone Fix for executable name detection is coming soon upstream, the fix is in this series https://patchwork.freedesktop.org/series/49492/, I've been using it for a while

Is someone able to explain me why

<driconf> <device screen="0" driver="radeonsi"> <application name="Chromium" executable="chromium"> <option name="allow_rgb10_configs" value="false" /> </application> </device> </driconf>

in /etc/drirc or $HOME/.drirc keeps playing reddish videos on chromium? What's wrong with that config?

Anyone?

VA-API driver is intel-media-driver. Disable Hardware Acceleration can workaround the issue.

A couple of notes:

  • it builds with llvm8-svn again after last 2 releases failing as mentioned before
  • I had system crashes with jumbo build and ryzen hyperthreading enabled. It tried to use too much RAM and hangs. Doesn't happen if I disable SMT or jumbo build. I thought it was an unstable overclock at first but ended up consistently reproducing it @stock and underclocked.

Huh, interesting, you are right! Updated my post :P

@maximbaz: Only base-devel, not base. They are no assumption of any kind regarding base anywhere in Arch Linux. ;)

maximbaz commented on 2018-12-08 14:19

andrej: bison is part of base-devel group, and it is always assumed that base-devel group is installed when building AUR packages, check out this wiki page for more info.

andrej commented on 2018-12-08 09:58

I think that this package needs bison in its makedepends. Otherwise it tries to invokem bison and then fails quite early in the build process.
