        Code:

        • Hoping someone can help if I'm doing something stupid or missing something, but how do I install the debug packages. I've added the ppaibaf/graphics-drivers repository but can't find any dbg packages.
          I'd like to install these to debug a crash playing back 2d video with vaapi.

          • Ubuntu 19.04/disco packages now available!

              It looks -dbg packages now need to be enabled PPA through web interface. Done now.

              • Apparently this patch is needed to workaround a problem with 32-bit build without sse currently. The 32-bit builds have been failing because of this and it's not upstream yet.

                  As promised 16.04/xenial is no longer supported. Please upgrade to 18.04/bionic or later to get updated packages from this PPA.

                  • Anyone have issues with installing mesa-vdpau-drivers and Kodi? Some videos will freeze Kodi and the only solution is to disable VDPAU acceleration or uninstall mesa-vdpau-drivers.

                    • Interestingly, the Radeon 9000 (mobile) is listed as supported by the "radeon" driver, as the "RV250", however is only being used with the "llvmpipe" software driver, and forcing it against the "radeon" driver results in the X server failing to start.

                      Using the Oibaf PPA helped me not.

                      Does anyone know whether the RV250 simply does not work against KMS? Or if this is something else?
