Missed the 1 minute editing-limit: I think I have mixed up DRI/DRI2 and UMS/KMS
So.. you think this part of the code is only called when not using KMS, i.e using KMS will work, not using KMS won't work?
To anyone with an E-350: we have uncovered the secret of undervolting, with good results. This processor has a lot of voltage headroom and you can reduce power consumption and temperatures by a few degrees both at idle and under load.
Nope that does not help for Debian 6.0 aka squeeze. I wrote a test script that did not create symlinks but changed the package to match the new xvba-va-driver package (but would work with any xvba-video update package too). The libva 1.0.1 in squeeze seems to be too old. No correct vainfo output at least.
Instead of installing xvba-video manually you can just install in in Debian testing/sid:
apt-get install xvba-va-driver
Ubuntu natty has 0.7.7 instead of 0.7.8, maybe file a bug. You can fetch of course the debian package for it:
which uses a completely different packageing. It is really sad that those packages are not compatible. Also why does it need to be in non-free? It would be more logical when it would be in the normal repository just like vdpau-va-driver as the xvba sdk is available - so source could be released too...
Hi Kano - I recently built an htpc with amd fusion / e-350. I installed ubuntu natty amd64, and built my own xbmc with vaapi support
