we are trying to install nad run Intel MSDK under Ubuntu on Intel Apollo Lake N4200.
Please can you tell us the right way to build and install https://github.com/Intel-Media-SDK/MediaSDK on our product ?
What are the necessary steps to build, install nad check if the MSDK if working ok?
Operating system: Linux Ubuntu 16.04 ( kernel 4.4)
Processor : Intel Apollo Lake N4200
Graphic driver: i915_bpo
I was told that N4200 was should function with the Open Source Media SDK per the driver page here: https://github.com/intel/media-driver/.
BXT/APL: Limited validation was performed; product quality expected in Q1’2018.
Please give MarkL's instructions a shot... https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/build-and-debug-open-source-media-stack... in the case you already have and you see something unclear, please consider adding to this thread. Thanks...
That processor SKU isn't supported by the current version of Open Source Intel Media SDK for Linux.
Currently, Apollo Lake and the SKU you mention is aligned with the Intel Media SDK for Embedded Linux available here: https://software.intel.com/en-us/media-sdk/choose-download/embedded-iot.
- In the most recent package IntelMediaSDK2017R2_1forEmbeddedLinux , you'll see instructions in the pdf file mediasdk_getting_started_guide.pdf . It calls out instructions for new and returning users respectively.
For Open Source Intel Media SDK for LInux Users can find matching the newest OS and processor support here:
- https://github.com/Intel-Media-SDK/MediaSDK (README.md which is currently reflected at the bottom of the github main portal)
Since you mentioned https://github.com/Intel-Media-SDK, we are assuming you tried to install it by build yourself.
If you just want to use the Media SDK, there are 2 ways:
1. As Michael said in his first post, download the Media SDK for Embedded and go through the installation process by this document:
this method replaces the default kernel with kernel 4.4
2. As Michael said in his modified post, you can following the build guide to build the whole set of the media software components. The guide has included all you expected: the manual steps, the script and the validation methods. Noted the default script doesn't apply to Apllo Lake, you have to check the instruction for manual build to change the default script when build the Media SDK library.
Let me know if you have further questions.
I'm facing the same issue. Fresh install Ubuntu 16.04 on NUC6i7KYK. Updated kernel to 4.14.16 and followed the following link to build and install Media SDK: https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/build-and-debug-open-source-media-stack
Compile works, but sample code failed to run with error MFX_ERR_UNSUPPORTED when calling MFXInit.
