Description Nebrit 2021-04-28 21:01:43 UTC
x11-libs/libva-intel-driver does not support Tiger Lake, and probably other new Intel GPUs, per

x11-libs/libva-intel-media-driver should be used instead

But there is no keyword to instruct libva-2.11.0.ebuild to depend on libva-intel-media-driver

There is iris VIDEO_CARDS keyword, I'm not sure if it should be used to make libva depend on media-driver, or there should be a new keyword.

But either way libva should be able to switch between intel and media drivers based on a keyword
