Hi,
I've succesfully deployed Media SDK 2016 on Centos in the past.
Now I would like to use Media SKD 2017 on ubuntu,
Running the decode_sample provided, I always get:
Return on error: error code -3,    MediaServerStudioEssentials2017/MediaSamples_Linux_2017/samples/sample_decode/src/pipeline_decode.cpp    404
Return on error: error code 1,    MediaServerStudioEssentials2017/MediaSamples_Linux_2017/samples/sample_decode/src/sample_decode.cpp    646

I didn't patch the default kernel because i915 graphic driver is already installed.
Please could you suggest a solution?
Thanks in advance

Here is my environment:
- MediaServerStudioEssentials2017
- Intel® Core™ i5-5200U CPU, Intel® HD Graphics 5500
- Ubuntu 16.04 64bit, kernel 4.4.0-57-generic

Hi,

Regarding use MSS on Ubuntu, you can refer this article: 

And patch the patches is important step.

 

Thanks,

Zachary

Thank you Zachary for  your quick answer.

I've already downloaded and implemented the linked document.

The problem is that patching Ubuntu kernel sources returns errors because that kernel is already patched with Intel graphic driver. Installing upstream kernel (from kernel.org) is not an option for me. So I'd rather prefer to make Ubuntu kernel just work. The best would be understand what's happening on my machine. Could you provide any advice?

Thanks in advance

Your Ubuntu kernel already include the patches of MSS, right ? can you double check this ?

Sometime patches merge not correct will cause failure to run media function. 

 

Thanks,

Zachary

Yeah I confirm that.

Please check the first thread post where I reported the vainfo output and the i915 driver loaded by 'original' ubuntu kernel. Those outputs are the same as they were produced by a patched upstream kernel.

What is the output of command line ?

$ ls -l /dev/dri | grep  renderD128        ## if no output, you need do the kernel patch merge.

$ cat /proc/kallsyms | grep userptr      ## if no output, you need do the kernel patch merge.

Thank you Zachary,

Below you'll find the outputs. They seem fine:
