    Well, I wanted you to prove the claim itself, not the mere fact that LFS claims something.

    libva-2.12.0 (to provide VA-API support for some gallium drivers, note that there is a circular dependency. You must build libva first without EGL and GLX support, install this package, and rebuild libva),
    But anyway. You seem to be misreading the manual. It simply says that there is a circular dependency, not that "if Mesa is updated, VAAPI and VDPAU and every other library or application that depends on them need to be recompiled as well".

    Circular dependencies do not imply any sort of API/ABI instability.

    And again you project your own usecases onto everyone. Also, not all laptop processors are 6w.

    Code:

    $ pacman -Qi intel-media-driver | egrep 'Name|Version|Date'
    Name : intel-media-driver
    Version : 21.3.2-1
    Build Date : Sat Aug 21 17:37:05 2021
    Install Date : Mon Aug 23 22:31:09 2021
    
    $ pacman -Qi libva | egrep 'Name|Version|Date'

    VAAPI works fine on my Firefox and my mpv.

    You're an absolute prick. And to think, I was thinking to myself "Man, birdie has been posting awesome shit lately."

    Loser in life and not a single soul respects you online. Try way harder and never quote me again. Not interested in anything you have to say.

    I checked all of the websites - they all appear to render well and the issues listed are fixed.

    Presumably any sites in that list are fixed, right? And not having any problems or forcing someone to use a different browser.
