Due to recent AMD GPU and mesa codec restritions ( which I respect and understand fully ), had to try to activate AMD GPU HW aceleration via installing Manjaro mesa-git package ( via git clone Packages / Extra / mesa · GitLab )
with the codec flags enabled.
But despite everything “looked and build normally” I have not be able to execute both vainfo nor vdpauinfo utils …
As a check I quickly installed Manjaro (Mabox - openbox spin but should be exact same repos afaik both on stable branch) on a 2011 laptop (same brand and type) but with an integrated Intel CPU+GPU chipset. Tried building mesa and it built fine with no core dump errors after. Of course it’s not useful on this 2011 laptop as it has no AMD GPU but it didn’t core dump.
For 2011 laptop with integrated Intel CPU+GPU and mesa built from source vainfo:
Both laptops on manjaro stable branch . Curiously I seem to have lost realtime-privileges on both laptops and despite trying everything I can’t get it back but that’s a separate issue from this thread.
For the meantime I downgraded using pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/mesa-22.2.3-1.1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst /var/cache/pacman/pkg/mesa-vdpau-22.2.3-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst /var/cache/pacman/pkg/opencl-mesa-22.2.3-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst
I really hope there is a solution, again any help appreciated.
