Description Ostashevskyi Viktor 2023-11-04 08:32:45 UTC
>=media-libs/libva-2.17 uses DRI3 X11 extension in order to setup X server / application / libva / media driver communication.

Unfortunately both media-libs/libva-intel-driver ( and media-libs/libva-intel-media-driver does not support such way of configuration via DRI3.

Effectively, clients using vaPutSurface API are broken, i.e. mpv:

[vo/vaapi] vaPutSurface() failed (invalid parameter)

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Ostashevskyi Viktor 2023-11-04 08:43:12 UTC
Workaround is possible: setting LIBVA_DRI3_DISABLE=1 environment variable fixes the problem.

However, I do not feel that stable package should require user to manually set any environment variables to be in the working state.
