vainfo error



When I run vainfo I get this error:

libva info: VA-API version 1.4.1
libva info: va_getDriverName() returns -1

I don't find the /dev/dri/ directory.

I think that I don't have a driver for your iGPU or it is broken.

When I run  "lscpu" command, I get this:

Hi Alon,

Could you give me more information?

Which Linux version, which Media SDK version?

No, /dev/dri is not the driver directory, it should be /opt/intel/mediasdk/lib64/, could you confirm if this file exists?

From error message, it looks like UMD or KMD issue, or environment issue.
