Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 823416
libvdpau_r600.so not available
Last modified: 2014-02-21 01:57:50 EST
Description of problem:
I cannot use libvdpau. vdpauinfo and another program utilizing vdpau report "libvdpau_r600.so: cannot open shared object file".
'yum provides libvdpau_r600.so' reports no matches.
I haven't used vdpau before on this machine (Mobility Radeon HD 4200 graphics) so I'm not 100% sure it's not a hardware problem but
* locate doesn't find such file and
* libvdpau is installed and vdpauinfo installed without breaking dependencies..
So.. is libvdpau broken?
How to reproduce:
Install vdpauinfo and run it.
Wrong component, it should have been mesa.
That been said, we cannot enable vdpau at this time for Legal concern. This may change when the support of the VP8 codec is merged into mesa.
This is currently evaluated in #815569.
Please note that currently enabling vdpau in mesa 8.0.x only means using the presentation API feature. Nothing is accelerated yet. (and this also lack support for modern codec).
Ok, thanks for the info. Subscribed there.
