We’ve been building Laptops based on Intel Cometlake
The intel i965 driver shipped in 18.04 does not work with recent Intel hardware
I guess we need a recent libva2 and the new intel-media-driver for this to work ?
Could @vanvugt update a bit this page :
So I understand what is needed here to ship video GPU-decoding enable laptops
Sorry we seem to have forgotten to fix that issue in 18.04 still. And it is actually bug 1813131 so please keep the discussion there and not here.
You are right the bug from rougeubuntu was a duplicate
But can you confirm 18.04+i965-driver+comet lake won’t work ?
I will then open a new bug
I don’t have a Comet Lake system to test but that probably doesn’t matter. Bug 1813131 is still open for 18.04 so please subscribe to that and don’t open a new bug.
I’m sure I’m talking about a different bug :
So I think my problem is just a backporting the new intel media driver ( which include a lot of good features anyway )
I’ve opened a bug to track the issue :
Maybe we need to define some ‘HWE’ rules for Va-api drivers as well to avoid that in the future.
The media driver stack is not included in the HWE backport set, but I think it should fall in the same category as mesa (which has VA/VDPAU drivers for AMDGPU) and get backported as-is. We’ll see.
