Hardware decoding is broken for some Intel CPUs (N3150 here). Had to replace libva and i965-va-driver for versions 1.6.0-1 as of this thread, otherwise I would only get a green screen output (with sound) despite all logs being apparently ok.

Otherwise very happy to see an update to SteamOS. Thank you, guys!

Is this a regression? We haven't changed those packages in quite a while. If you can test the newer packages rather than the older ones, we could look at updating them. (jessie-backports has intel-vaapi-driver 1.7.3-1~bpo8+1)

Update works fine on Alienware Steam Machine r1 with Intel Core i7. Serious Sam Fusion 2017 now works with Vulkan, better than with OpenGL. Boot Time is better with the Linux Kernel 4.11, like on my Dell Latitude E6330 Notebook with Kernel 4.11 on Linux Mint 18.1 64 bit.

Yes, a regression, IIRC those packages were on 1.3.2 and have now been changed to 1.4.2.

Hardware decoding was working fine for those packages on the prior stable release (1.3.x), although the two latest beta releases (1.4.x) only supported software decoding on the CPUs that used it. The streaming logs reported a failure to initialize vaapi on the betas, whereas the latest stable reports nothing wrong, but only outputs a green screen.

As reported here (and I confirm that), versions 1.4.x of i965-va-driver:i386 libva1:i386 seem to be broken for Steam hardware decoding.

I'll test 1.7.3-1~bpo8+1 from jessie-backports later tonight and report back.
Thank you for the attention, loving my SteamOS so far.

hello


first of all: i really appreciate your efforts!
I also wish valve had even much more interest in this, in my opinion, steam machines have together with the support of valve with possibly more manpower the potential to shake up the worldwide market! I hope mr. newell will concur with this and approve more funding for you and your team!

Anyway, I do have an issue here. The envelope pops up telling me to restart to update, also I can see 200+ upgradeable packages in aptitude, so it is there - but everytime I do that and restart, steam just starts and no update was performed.

Obviously it is interrupted or canceled due to whatever reason. Can you help me to figure out what it is? Please tell me what logs you wish to see.

currently in use, according to syslog with a few line that I think are relevant; seems like the sources can not be fetched, networking is up at least when the system enters big picture mode.

Thanks for quickly pushing beta to stable. :-)

Update sucessful on Zotac Nen and IvyBridge laptop.
I can confirm wifi now works on the Nen in my home setup.

As you seem to have desktop and console access available, could you try
sudo apt update
to get the latest list of updates from the repositories.
And then
sudo apt upgrade
to force the upgrade to happen.

hi


yes, I could do that - my interest was to figure out a possible bug to help valve resolve it.

There are a few files, non empty are, of relevance obviously: /var/log/unattended-upgrades/unattended-upgrades.log

https://pastebin.ca/raw/3828970

seems that this has to do with some additional software I installed. I'll try to clean that up by hand. thanks for the hint, I haven't even tried to mark the packages for upgrade manually.

edit: I worked it out, the updated performed flawlessly, thank you!

There appears to be a regression from the kernel's recent updates/changes to hid-sony.c. Connecting a DS4 via Bluetooth causes the system (and the controller) to lock up; here's the relevant dmesg output:

VAAPI hardware decoding reported working fine with intel-vaapi-driver=1.7.3-1~bpo8+1 from jessie-backports.

My exact packages updates (all from jessie-backports) were:

i965-va-driver=1.7.3-1~bpo8+1
i965-va-driver:i386=1.7.3-1~bpo8+1
libva1=1.7.3-2+bsos1
libva1:i386=1.7.3-2+bsos1
libva-x11-1=1.7.3-2+bsos1
libva-x11-1:i386-1=1.7.3-2+bsos1
libva-glx1=1.7.3-2+bsos1
libva-glx1:i386=1.7.3-2+bsos1


Please consider updating.
