System currently running without hardware acceleration

Fri Jun 18, 2021 11:38 pm

I am building a custom install of Cinnamon and getting the error,..
"Your system is currently running without video hardware acceleration.
You may experience poor performance and high CPU usage.

I only get this error when installing on the lite version. If I install on the desktop version I do not get the error.
My guess is the Raspberry Pi desktop is installing something that I need but I can not figure out what it is.

Can someone tell me what packages or config I need to install that I am missing?

Thanks,

I'm afraid if you're compiling it all yourself then it'll be a case of trawling through configure logs to find the missing item, usually a "dev" lib. You might want to get into the habit of doing something like this for everything..

Code: Select all

mkdir obj && cd obj
../src/configure --help 2>&1 | tee ../log/hlp/hlp.log
../src/configure "$@" 2>&1 | tee ../log/cfg/cfg.log

Return to “Raspberry Pi OS”
