MFXInit(MFX_IMPL_HARDWARE,{0,1},&session) fails,returning -3.

On a i7-4700eq running centos 7, I installed the rpms from "MediaSeverStudioEssentials2015R3.tar.gz" and the kernel modules, and whenever I try to run MFXInit i get -3.

dmesg is spitting out "[drm:i915_set_reset_status] *ERROR* render ring hung inside bo (0x1885000 ctx 1) at 0x1885274"

I did get the kernel source from http://vault.centos.org/7.0.1406/updates/Source/SPackages/kernel-3.10.0-123.9.3.el7.src.rpm and am running it.

Did you run it as root?

It dosn't work running as root or running as a normal user.

Hi Sam,

Can you ensure if you have the right kernel loaded and you have loaded the correct drm module? Please send us the output of the following commands:

- uname -ar

- lspci -nn | grep VGA

- lsmod | grep i915

Thanks.

Based on this information, looks like your installation was successful.

Can you let us know what sample you are running, the command line being used and snapshot of the output? Also, please run the sample application as root (not sudo, but as root). 

Also, can you give more system details: processor and graphics for example.

It appears as though even though rpm said it had installed libva, it had not, i apologise for wasting your time but it is working.
