Description Tjibbe Steneker 2022-06-22 17:58:51 UTC
Description of problem:
The file i915_dri.so is missing in package mesa-dri-drivers. Because of this video hardware acceleration is not available with older Intel graphics controllers which are not supported by crocus or iris, like the Q35.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
22.0.0-3 up to and including 2.1.2

Additional info:
This can easily be fixed by adding i915 to the option -Dgallium-drivers. I currently work around this problem by building it myself and copying it to /usr/lib64/dri/.

The Gallium i915 driver is still supported by the Mesa3D project and is part of their default set of drivers for the x86 and x86_64 CPU family (see file mesa.build).
