Hello everyone,

As there is some big discussion going on about the XvBA backend for VA API I'm interested in trying this out with my Gigabyte 780g based mainboard. Currently, however, I have problems even getting a message during xserver startup saying that "UVD2 feature is available". As I guess this will be a prerequisite of going any further I hope some of you can give a hint on what to do.

It seems that once the amdxmm Module is loaded there will either the above mentioned message will be printed or not. In my case this is missing. Everything else, for example OpenGL acceleration works perfectly.

Do I need to load any specific modules in order for this to work? Am I missing something else? There where no errors during xserver startup and apart from "AIGLX: 3D driver claims to not support visual 0x3f" and a few more I've only noticed a warning saying that "board is an unknown third party board, chipset is supported". May this be of some relevance?

Btw the mainboard is a GA-MA78GPM-DS2H.
Thanks for any help!
