GPU drivers: packages intel-media-va-driver-non-free and limfx1 not found

Jump to solution

I am attempting to get Intel oneAPI up and running on Ubuntu 18.04.4, but I am having some trouble installing the GPU drivers, as per this site https://software.intel.com/content/www/us/en/develop/topics/graphics-linux-drivers.html

 

My PCI ID is 8086:3ea9, and when I follow the instructions given on the site, i.e. executing

cat << EOF | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/intel-graphics.list
deb [trusted=yes arch=amd64] https://repositories.intel.com/graphics/ubuntu bionic main
EOF
sudo apt-get update

 

and 

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install \
  intel-opencl \
  intel-media-va-driver-non-free libmfx

 

I receive the following error messages: 

E: Unable to locate package intel-media-va-driver-non-free

and

E: Unable to locate package libmfx1

 

Does anyone know whether this even matters, and if so, how I can remedy the problem?

 

Thanks in advance.

There was an error in the instructions published to the software.intel.com site (the media packages are not available for Ubuntu 18.04.) We're working to get the content on that site updated.

Hi,

Thanks for reaching out to us!

Could you please let us know the oneAPI Base toolkit version which you are using?


Also, we observed that in the commands which you have attached in the query. It says


sudo apt-get install \

intel-opencl \

intel-media-va-driver-non-free libmfx


Whereas, the command which is provided in the below link is https://software.intel.com/content/www/us/en/develop/topics/graphics-linux-drivers.html


sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install \

intel-opencl \

intel-media-va-driver-non-free libmfx1


Could you please confirm whether you are following the exact same command or not? If not please try with libmfx1 let us know the outcome of it.


Also, please share the error logs, so that it will help us to debug more on the issue you are facing.



Thanks & Regards

Goutham

Dear Goutham

Thank you very much for the taking the time to look into the issue I raised. The missing "1" is a copy+paste on my part, when I was writing my post. I apologize for the inconvenience on your part.

Since I posted the original post, I have reinstalled Ubuntu 18.04.4 and I install Intel oneAPI basekit 2021.1 Beta08 on it.

I have attached a log of the commands I executed in a terminal windows. At lines 76, 82 and 123 you will find the message I originally posted about.  Preceding the attempt to install those packages not found I executed the following to update my packages repositories:

lassen@lassen-NUC8i5BEHS:~$ cat << EOF | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/intel-graphics.list
> deb [trusted=yes arch=amd64] https://repositories.intel.com/graphics/ubuntu bionic main
> EOF
deb [trusted=yes arch=amd64] https://repositories.intel.com/graphics/ubuntu bionic main

and then

lassen@lassen-NUC8i5BEHS:~$ sudo apt-get update
