Hi everyone,

 

Having some trouble here hopefully someone can help.  I have an Intel Arc A380 in my Ubuntu box that has Plex Server on it.  I followed the directions to install the driver from here: 3.1. Overview — Intel® software for general purpose GPU capabilities documentation  I did steps 3.1.2-3.1.3.

 

See below for some command outputs.

lspci -k | grep -EA3 'VGA|3D|Display'
0b:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation DG2 [Arc A380] (rev 05)
Subsystem: ASRock Incorporation DG2 [Arc A380]
Kernel driver in use: i915
Kernel modules: i915, xe

vainfo: Supported profile and entrypoints

 

When I just updated Plex Server I got this;

PlexMediaServer install: PlexMediaServer-1.40.2.8395-c67dce28e - Installation starting.
PlexMediaServer install:
PlexMediaServer install: Now installing based on:
PlexMediaServer install: Installation Type: Update
PlexMediaServer install: Process Control: systemd
PlexMediaServer install: Lang Encoding: en_US.UTF-8
PlexMediaServer install: Processor: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 8-Core Processor
PlexMediaServer install: Intel i915 Hardware: Not found
PlexMediaServer install: Nvidia GPU card: Not Found

 

I'm lost as to what to try next to get this to work.  It worked back in December and now I updated to 23.10 and am scratching my head.  Hoping I just missed something easy, thanks for reading.

Hello ChamCham48,


I apologize for the extended wait. To compensate for the inconvenience, I have an update for you following our team's coordination. It is no longer necessary to manually install the Arc Drivers on Linux systems. For detailed instructions, please refer to section 3.1.1.1.


The simplest approach is to utilize the Ubuntu Desktop-supplied Hardware Enablement (HWE) stack beginning with Ubuntu 23.04 (Lunar). This method supports both integrated and discrete graphics without the need for custom configurations. Please note, however, that this method has not yet undergone validation.
