Intel GPU


Install the Mesa DRI drivers:

# xbps-install -S mesa-dri

Note: This is already included in the xorg metapackage, but it is needed when installing xorg via xorg-minimal or for running a Wayland compositor.


Install the Khronos Vulkan Loader and the Mesa Intel Vulkan driver:

# xbps-install -S vulkan-loader mesa-vulkan-intel

Video acceleration

Install the intel-video-accel metapackage:

# xbps-install -S intel-video-accel

This will install all the Intel VA-API drivers. intel-media-driver will be used by default, but this choice can be overridden at runtime via the environmental variable LIBVA_DRIVER_NAME:
