ROSA Linux Bugzilla – Bug 5577
vdpauinfo: failed to open VDPAU backend libvdpau_nvidia.so
Last modified: 2015-05-19 15:20:21 MSD
Description of problem:
The vdpauinfo failed to run on Optimus computer with error:
Failed to open VDPAU backend libvdpau_nvidia.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Error creating VDPAU device: 1
The file /usr/lib/vdpau/libvdpau_nvidia.so.1 should be provided by x11-driver-video-nvidia346 (try urpmf). I have the x11-driver-video-nvidia346 installed, but libvdpau_nvidia.so.1 is not installed for some reason.
HW probe: http://hw.rosalinux.ru/index.php?probe=9a99df2417
The error is the same on the computer with Radeon + Intel hybrid graphics.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): R5
Steps to Reproduce:
1. urpmi vdpauinfo
2. run vdpauinfo
On x86_64, /usr/lib64/vdpau/libvdpau_nvidia.so.1 is provided by x11-driver-video-nvidia346.
If vdpauinfo looks for it in /usr/lib instead, it is vdpauinfo that should be fixed, I suppose.
