Media Server Studio 2018R1 on Centos7.4: vainfo fails

I have been running Media Server Studio 2017R3 for quite a while but have been experiencing crashes with the nimble transcoder.  Therefore, I have been attempting to install Media Server Studio 2018R1 to see if this fixes the problem.

Linux: CentOS Linux release 7.4.1708 (Core)

I have completed the install using the install scripts, but I am getting an error when I verify the installation using vainfo
$ vainfo
libva info: VA-API version 1.0.0
libva info: va_getDriverName() returns -1
libva info: User requested driver 'iHD'
libva info: Trying to open /opt/intel/mediasdk/lib64/iHD_drv_video.so

libva error: /opt/intel/mediasdk/lib64/iHD_drv_video.so init failed
libva info: va_openDriver() returns 18
vaInitialize failed with error code 18 (invalid parameter),exit

 

Any suggestions appreciated.

Hi Canukhd,

Yes, this should be expected.

From MSS 2018R1, we are no long build libra-util which support "vainfo" although it won't fail the installation.

You could find the build method either in the getting started guide in the release or refer to "Smoke Test No. 3" in the following article.

Thanks,  I did try that as per the instruction in the 2018R1 installation guide (pdf) and still get the error with vainfo.

I tried the instructions again (see following) but still get the same error with vainfo.   I did the 2018R1 install on the same system that was running 2017R3.   I did a yum upgrade release to 7.4.1708 from the previous release then used yum to remove the intel_media_lib and the nimble media server and the nimble transcoder. 

I then ran the scripts to install 2018R1 (which passed).    The first smoke test also works, but the third smoke test still fails.   Perhaps the problems are due to the fact that this is not a clean install of CentOS7.4.   Unfortunately the system is not local, and it will require some travel to start from fresh with a clean install. 

Third smoke test installation and results:
