Intel Video Hardware Acceleration on Intel NUC7i7BNH

Post by talisker » Thu Apr 19, 2018 4:37 pm

Hi EveryBody,
Referencing this thread because I also own an NUC7i7 as well, i'm running LM 18.2 last kernel upgrade but I can't activate the hardware video acceleration (modsetting), so i can't play 4K video file with a decent cpu usage.

Code: Select all

$ inxi -G
Graphics:  Card: Intel Device 5927
           Display Server: x11 (X.Org 1.18.4 ) drivers: (unloaded: fbdev,vesa) FAILED: modesetting
           Resolution: 1920x1080@60.00hz
           OpenGL: renderer: Mesa DRI Intel Iris Plus Graphics 650 (Kaby Lake GT3e)
           version: 4.5 Mesa 18.0.1 - padoka PPA
$ vainfo
libva info: VA-API version 0.39.2
libva info: va_getDriverName() returns -1
libva error: va_getDriverName() failed with unknown libva error,driver_name=(null)
vaInitialize failed with error code -1 (unknown libva error),exit
I will really appreciate some help on this topics

Hi folks,

Few more information about my subject, based on this thread viewtopic.php?t=250485 I remove xserver-xorg-video-intel because it add some old intel driver.
Based on the following command I'm pretty sure that I use the driver from the lastest Kernel (i915) :

Code: Select all

$ lspci -nnk
00:00.0 Host bridge [0600]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:5904] (rev 03)
	DeviceName:  Intel Dual Band
	Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device [8086:2068]
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:5927] (rev 06)
	DeviceName:  CPU
	Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device [8086:2068]
	Kernel driver in use: i915
	Kernel modules: i915
00:08.0 System peripheral [0880]: Intel Corporation Sky Lake Gaussian Mixture Model [8086:1911]
	Subsystem: Intel Corporation Skylake Gaussian Mixture Model [8086:2068]
00:14.0 USB controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation Sunrise Point-LP USB 3.0 xHCI Controller [8086:9d2f] (rev 21)
	Subsystem: Intel Corporation Sunrise Point-LP USB 3.0 xHCI Controller [8086:2068]
	Kernel driver in use: xhci_hcd
...
But I can't still not activate the modsetting ...

Try this:
Update Manager - panel: View - Linux kernels

Install the latest kernel of the 4.15 series. Then reboot.

Re: Cinnamon runs in software rendering mode on an Intel NUC7i7BNH

Execute this command:

Code: Select all

grep modesetting /var/log/Xorg.0.log
Does the last line (or the last line but one) of the output it produces, look approximately similar to the line below? Then you're probably OK after all:

Code: Select all

[      7.302] (II) modesetting: Driver for Modesetting Kernel Drivers: kms
If there's no such line, it might be wiser to re-install the old driver.

Hi,
The Xorg.log look strange, It like it try to load modesetting twice.
I don't think it's working properly right know, vainfo still report error.
Do you know where is the config file for Xorg ?

News, from Intel Video Hardware Acceleration,
I updated INXI

Code: Select all

$ inxi --version
inxi 3.0.07-00 (2018-04-17)
and now result from inxi is more clear :

Code: Select all

$ inxi -G
Graphics:  Card-1: Intel driver: i915 v: kernel 
           Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.18.4 driver: none unloaded: fbdev,intel,modesetting,vesa

I really think now that the problem comes from X11, i will try to force th configuration of Xorg by creating xorg.conf.
This file doesn't exist any more in recent version because the autoconfig will work properly most of the time, but in certain case, the autoconfig is not working (mutiple screen or graphics cards for instance)
Is someone have experiences to write an xorg.conf for Intel Graphics Card ?
