I have a Media Server Studio application on the golden CentOS distro, which runs fine if root user, but for user accounts you get a failure to open the i965 driver. For sake of internal automation process, would prefer to not be root when running this app. Have tried password-less sudo for a user account, but same error happens for the i965 driver. Is there any workaround for this?
To use Media SDK, you need intel i915 driver, not i965 which you might be seeing when running applications with non-root permissions.
Solution : Please add the user to the video group - $ usermod -a -G video [LOGIN]
Also, mentioned as a pre-requisite in the getting started guide as well. This should solve your issue. If that, doesn't help please send us the o/p of your application, when not using root privileges.
