SMPlayer: Symbol Lookup Error

Upon launching SMPlayer I get the following error message:

/usr/bin/mpv: symbol lookup error: /usr/bin/mpv: undefined symbol: vkCreateWaylandSurfaceKHR

A similar issue was reported to AceStream Launcher, I followed the suggestion in this comment but it didn’t work.

I use X11 not Wayland.

more details would help

meanwhile take look at the last comment

I already have egl-wayland installed.

Updating the kernel to 5.16.2 fixed the issue which was observed in 5.15.x
