Hi everyone, a new member to this forum and manjaro (less than 1 week), coming from Ubuntu. The transition was smooth and the performance of my XPS 13 9300 drastically improved.
Problem: Kodi starts very slow, and generates the following message when started from the terminal:
“Failed to open VDPAU backend libvdpau_va_gl.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory”
I have searched the net and the forum and found that inserting the following in the /etc/environment:
may help. I’ve looked at the /usr/lib/dri and changed i915 for i965 or iris, however, it not helped. I’m looking for some advice. Since this was brand new install, kodi start it slow starts only after some time, so probably some software I’ve installed (Virtualbox???) must have cause the conflict.
Here is the system info:
