HW & SW compatibility

Hi All !

I have Intel R1304RPMSHOR 1U,1x1150,iC226,4xDDR3L,4xSAS/SATA HS,RAID 0/1/10,2xLAN 2x450W

and Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS (may be upgraded to 12.04.5 or downgraded to 12.04)

Is it possible to use Media SDK R2 on this hardware?

Thanks!

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

You didn't mention the processor in this system, but there is a good chance this configuration will work.  The basic requirement for Xeon support is E3-1285v3 and C226 chipset.

 

This Intel platform have motherboard with C226 if I understand correctly: http://ark.intel.com/ru/products/76075/Intel-Server-System-R1304RPMSHOR And I have Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1225 v3 @ 3.20GHz. This CPU has Intel® HD Graphics P4600 -- is it not enough to use Intel graphics via Media SDK?

Yes, the CPU will work.

ok, thanks

One more question

Media SDK does not compile on 12.04.4
So I upgraded to Ubuntu 14.04. Media SDK does not compile too with the same error.

But 14.04 has the latest software version:
xf86-video-intel 2.99.914
libdrm-intel1 2.4.52-1

Is it still needed to compile drm.ko and i915.ko from Media SDK distribution or this Ubuntu release has acceptable versions already?

Thanks

Media SDK R2 for Linux servers is supported on all updates of Ubuntu 12.04.  It is not officially supported on Ubuntu 14.04.  While many features will work in the later Ubuntu there are several that require the combination of patches to the graphics stack.  You are free to use the source included to do your own port to Ubuntu 14.04 but it is not a supported configuration.  Also please be aware that R2 is the last release supporting Ubuntu (more info here.)

What compilation problems are you seeing on Ubuntu 12.04.4?  You may be interested in this recently posted Linux Install Tutorial.

 

ok

I reinstall Ubuntu 12.04 and now I have following:

----------- /cut_here ---------

/kmd/source/ has patches for k3.2-rel & k3.8-rel but I have kernel-3.11

What I need to do next? Just reboot and check lsmod? How I can check loaded module version?

Or I need to downgrade to Ubuntu-12.04 with kernel 3.[28] ?

ok

Ubuntu reinstalled again :-) Kernel updated. MediaSDK installed successfully. Rebooted.

Now I have following:

===== /cut here

Also dev package is not installed:
"intel-linux-media-dev-ubuntu depends on intel-linux-media-runtime-ubuntu; however:
Package intel-linux-media-runtime-ubuntu is not installed."

But I have no intel-linux-media-runtime-ubuntu at my MediaSDK distribution. I think it named intel-linux-media-ubuntu because I have intel-linux-media-ubuntu_16.3.2.22368_amd64.deb at MediaSDK archive

Can anybody explain me where my problem now?

Thanks!

I have Ubuntu-12.04.3 now

Is it really possible to simple install software from Intel ?

Hi Victor,

In your sample_decode command line : /opt/intel/mediasdk/samples/_bin/x64/sample_decode_drm h264 -i /home/vit/Broadband_1_upper.mp4 -o /home/vit/trailer_1080p.yuv -hw

,your input codec as h264 and you pass an mp4 file. The MSDK expects video stream as input. So, can you use ffmpeg or yamb software to extract the video stream from your mp4 file and pass that as the input to the decoder?

"Is it really possible to simple install software from Intel ?" -> Regarding your installation procedure, if you followed the steps given in this article, you install should be good. Have you had any luck getting the install to work recently?
