thanks for report @Martine! I expected it not to work. The good news is that firefox 80 will be released in late August, with VAAPI support for X11

Chromium spews a little bit more info: MESA-LOADER: failed to retrieve device information MESA-LOADER: failed to open i915 (search paths /usr/lib/dri) failed to load driver: i915 MESA-LOADER: failed to open kms_swrast (search paths /usr/lib/dri) failed to load driver: kms_swrast MESA-LOADER: failed to open swrast (search paths /usr/lib/dri) failed to load swrast driver

The non-experimemtal driver does not give this error

@Alium, you were correct.EXPERIMENTAL builds fine with the patches, my bad.

However after installing vainfo says: Segmentation fault: core dumped

I had hoped with running mpv from cmdline I got more info but the moment I switch to VAAPI mpv crashes with the same error.

@Martine did you use the gcc-10 patches that are in my PKGBUILD? it does not look like that... ;-)

Tried to build the 2.4.0-EXPERIMENTAL build but fails with the following error:

/usr/bin/ld: ./.libs/libi965_drv_video.a(libi965_drv_video_la-gen9_hevc_encoder.o):(.rodata+0x2a20): multiple definition of `gen9_hevc_encoder_kernels'; ./.libs/libi965_drv_video.a(libi965_drv_video_la-gen9_hevc_enc_kernels_binary.o):(.rodata+0x0): first defined here
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
There seems to be a fix for it, not sure if you imported it already

Thanks for looking into it!

exist not so much solution for old G45:

can you try install libva1 and older driver:

Maybe will Chromium works.

Or you can try use newest firefox under wayland (have VAAPI support, but no X11 support).

Or you can try with enabled VPP for G45 (should add VAProfileNone). I am not sure if that will works (probably on 99% not), but volunteers can test it :-)

you just need modify in PKGBUILD source=() and generate new sums

Package builds fine with intel-gpu-tools installed, at least for me.

apart from this, thanks for all.

@Martine @alium I am using vaapi and chromium since too much time ago. But.. there is a problem since a few months, it's the exact thing that martine said. Do you know something about this?
