Quick Question on MSS R6 Generic

Hi
Went through the installation a few times, and finally got it working by following Jiandong Z. suggestion in https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/topic/543365 thread. Confirmed proper operation by the following:

    ./sample_multi_transcode_drm -i::h264 ~ubuntu/in.h264 -o::h264 ~ubuntu/test_out.h264 -hw
    Multi Transcoding Sample Version 6.0.16043166.166

    libva info: VA-API version 0.35.0
    libva info: va_getDriverName() returns 0
    libva info: User requested driver 'iHD'
    libva info: Trying to open /opt/intel/mediasdk/lib64/iHD_drv_video.so
    libva info: Found init function __vaDriverInit_0_32
    libva info: va_openDriver() returns 0
    Pipeline surfaces number: 12
    MFX HARDWARE Session 0 API ver 1.16 parameters:
    Input  video: AVC
    Output video: AVC

    Session 0 was NOT joined with other sessions

    Transcoding started
    ........
    Transcoding finished

    Common transcoding time is  1.43 sec
    MFX session 0 transcoding PASSED:
    Processing time: 1.43 sec
    Number of processed frames: 750

    The test PASSED

The only  peculiarity is that the typical "MSS" postfix in kernel name seems to be missing:

# uname -ar
Linux lab-gpu02 3.14.5 #1 SMP Tue Jul 21 16:19:39 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Is this expected or am I missing something?

Cheers,

Hi There,

By default, '$ uname -r' will output like following, if you don't change Makefile in kernel tree.

$ uname -r

3.14.5

if you want '$ uname -r' output "3.14.5-MSSr6", you can modify Makefile in kernel tree like below

EXTRAVERSION =   ->    EXTRAVERSION =-MSSr6  

or

SUBLEVEL = 5   ->   SUBLEVEL = 5-MSSr6

Then rebuild the kernel and reboot.

$ uname -r

3.14.5-MSSr6

 

Best Regards,

Zachary

Hi

Thank you for the clarification. (I myself typically use CONFIG_LOCALVERSION, in .config.)
