  • Hello. I'm using HP 8470p (i7) with Radeon HD 7570M. Is this possible to use video acceleration while watching movies/using flash with your drivers?
    I'm with you so long but my laptop is still hot so maybe I have something wrong cofigured or maybe this card is not supported yet.
    Thank you in advance.

      put the following lines in /etc/adobe/mms.cfg :
      Code:
      EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1
      OverrideGPUValidation=1
      this will let flash use VDPAU. make sure to test some videos to see if flash or the driver still works, though. if you get random crashes, remove the lines.

      what versions of kernel/ubuntu are you using?
      run
      Code:
      glxinfo | grep render
      if you see something like "llvmpipe (LLVM 3.6, 128 bits)" somewhere, then your laptop is misconfigured and not using the GPU(s).

      • Thank you for answer. Now I can't check this but my laptop can use only AMD GPU. Can't switch to Intel. I was using every Ubuntu since LTS.

        • How do I completely remove Oibaf PPA? ppa-purge doesn't seem to do it. I'm interested in trying Paulo Dias PPA or just going back to regular drivers that came with Mint 17.2.

            Can you paste the apt-get output? you can remove every package with the oibaf tag too, see what you still have installed with dpkg -l|grep -i oibaf

            • I have few questions about OpenCL
              1. Is there any package in this oibaf/graphics-drivers ppa that
              provides same libraries as mesa-opencl-icd, libclc-amdgcn and libclc-r600 from Debian sid?
              2. If answer is "Yes", which package(s) is it? (I suppose it's mesa but still in doubt)
              3. Is it possible to use latest opensource OpenCL implementations for AMD GPUs without using unstable mesa and Xorg? I'm using beignet from git on my laptop and it just happy to work with default ubuntu 15.10 libraries (except little kernel patch, although it doesn't break my system at all)

                2 same name of Debian. Note that actually amdgcn drivers are in r600 libclc package, this will be changed soon.

                  This is not fixing i386 build, I build 3.7.1-rc1 but it still breaks.

                    That's unfortunate. Any idea what is causing the failure?

                    • Looked at your build log. Not sure but can you limit the buildbot to building for i386 and x64? Some of the fail look like they are for ARM and Apple.
