Re: Video acceleration not working on old Thinkpad X61s

Just to check, you do have xf86-video-intel installed I assume?  That claims to be video drivers for 945G chipsets.

But it doesn't contain the complained about file that vainfo reports so I guess it won't fix that.  My vainfo fails with:

vaInitialize failed with error code -1 (unknown libva error),exit

So it doesn't look like a load error to me but it doesn't get much further before it falls over.  I can still play oolite here and watch videos using vlc so I'm happy with performance.

Re: Video acceleration not working on old Thinkpad X61s

No. The oldest Intel graphics chipset for hardware video decoding or encoding supported in Arch Linux or the whole of Linux, for that matter, is the GMA 4500. That chipset was used in the 1st gen core i3/i5/i7s, i.e. Nehalem. Your chipset is a generation older than GMA 4500.
And it is a chore to get H264 video decoding even on GMA 4500. Check out the comments section on the AUR package of the driver needed to get video decoding available. https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/libv … -g45-h264/.

And OBS is not starting because that chipset probably supports OpenGL v1.1 or v1.0, or something like that, while OBS requires v3.0 or higher or something. Idk the exact version numbers supported on either GPU or OBS.
But the same thing happens to me on my T60 with AMD RV515 GPU, when I try to run any application that requires a newer OpenGL version supported , i.e Alacritty, Kitty, and SuperTuxKart.
And no, there is nothing we can do, it is hardware-based. No software trickery can wiggle it's way around this.

xf86-video-intel only provides 2D acceleration for Xorg to all Intel iGPUs. I assume that means that it makes Xorg run on these GPUs, I don't know what 2D acceleration is.

VA-API provides video acceleration for Intel GPUs, for which there are different drivers, for GMA 4500, i.e Nehalem, there is libva-intel-driver-g45-h264, for Sandy Bridge to Broadwell, there is intel-media-driver, for Broadwell and above, there is libva-intel-driver.

Check out https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ha … celeration.

My GPU is not supported for hardware video acceleration either. Being an AMD chip, it uses VDPAU to provide hardware video acceleration, but even the proprietary AMD Catalyst legacy drivers do not support my GPU.
However, the Core Duo in my T60 is powerful enough to software decode and play H264 files without any issue. It can even play H265 files depending on the file, my luck and the phase of the moon.
So, OP, you should be fine with video playback, as long as you remember the limits of your hardware.

That error usually means your GPU does not support VAAPI, i.e it is not an Intel chip, or it is an Intel chip, but does not support VAAPI, or it is not among the newer (as in 4-5 years old now, in which case you have a system modern enough that you shouldn't be running 32-bit Arch) AMD GPUs that support both VDPAU and VAAPI.
NVIDIA GPUs used to use VDPAU before, though now they have their proprietary NVENC/NVDEC system to provide hardware video acceleration, they have never supported VAAPI.

I assume this is a mistype.  My machine is at least 12 years old now from memory, yet still runs the most advanced arch32 variant, that of pentium4. The i686 repos are for pentium pro or later (mainy p2 and p3s), and the 486 repos are for the 80486 and original pentium chips, at least if your sticking with official mainstream intel chips.  Sometimes chips from other manufacturers don't implement all of the opcodes so you need to run code designed for 80486 chips despite being a significantly newer chip.

My video server is about the same age as my laptop, and that's running the full 64-bit arch.  Most 5 year old chips and more are perfectly capable of running arch 64.  Arch 32 is for those of us maintaining older hardware.

Yeah, sorry. Tried to say something else, and it came out differently in the written form.
What I meant was, that error only occurs if your GPU does not support VAAPI. Now, that only occurs in certain situations, such as
1) your GPU is not an integrated Intel graphics chip.
Or 2) it is an Intel chip, but it does not support VAAPI.
Or, 3) it is a NVIDIA GPU, in which case, it does not support VAAPI at all, instead, it uses their proprietary standard, NVENC/NVDEC. The earlier NVIDIA chips, until the GTX 1000 series, I believe, used the VDPAU system to provide hardware video acceleration, which also leads to that error.
Or, 4) it is an AMD chip.
But, AMD is nowadays supporting both VAAPI and VDPAU on their GPUs, but only on their newer models from about 5 years ago. (I say 5 as a vague number, I don't know the specific year when they started supporting both standards. But they did start supporting it fairly recently.)

I meant to say that if you are running that set of AMD GPUs that support both VAAPI and VDPAU, (which you are not, seeing that you are getting that error) you have a system new enough that you really don't need to run Arch 32.

Re: Video acceleration not working on old Thinkpad X61s

Fully agreeing with levi here. :-)

/proc/cpuinfo says:

Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU     L7500  @ 1.60GHz

https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en … z-fsb.html

Check out instruction set: 64-bit

Fun fact, I own a X61s which runs Vanilla Archlinux just fine, I wouldn't think of running Archlinux32 on it. :-)

That said, it could be that there are 32-bit machines out there with the named Intel GPU, but is it worth investigating?

Re: Video acceleration not working on old Thinkpad X61s

Right.
My /proc/cpuinfo says

model name      : Genuine Intel(R) CPU           T2400  @ 1.83GHz
address sizes   : 32 bits physical, 32 bits virtual

Which means I have a fully 32-bit cpu. sad
But yes, it too runs pentium4 packages.

Not really. As I said, there is nothing to be done for OP's problem with that GPU. We cannot make an older GPU support newer OpenGL versions, nor can we provide VAAPI support to said older GPUs.

Some of the Core Duos/Core 2 Duos support 64-bit, some do not.
My T60 was apparently one of the lower-specced models, hence it comes with a Core Duo that does not have 64-bit support.
Me, the ISO for Vanilla arch does not even boot.

Re: Video acceleration not working on old Thinkpad X61s

Ah, that's where you can swap the CPU for a 64-bit one, IIRC.

Yeah, one of the advantages of using the older machines we use, is being able to easily upgrade the components, due to not having them soldered onto the motherboard.
I've been meaning to get the CPU upgrade, maybe some RAM, and an SSD as well, but life comes in the way.
