brave browser fails to start : passthrough is not supported GL is egl

Installed brave browser using

  git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/brave-bin.git
  cd brave-bin
  makepkg -si


Install goes and goes to ok...


On starting the application from CLI, system returns immediatly and posts  :

libva error: vaGetDriverNameByIndex() failed with unknown libva error, driver_name = (null)
[62316:62316:0522/211048.168967:ERROR:gpu_init.cc(426)] Passthrough is not supported, GL is egl

Tried:
/usr/bin/brave  --use-gl=egl
/usr/bin/brave --ignore-gpu-blocklist --enable-gpu-rasterization --use-gl=egl
/usr/bin/brave --ignore-gpu-blocklist --enable-gpu-rasterization --use-gl=desktop

brave runs fine when accessing via ssh -X

That suggests something is wrong with your hardware video acceleration setup.
How that needs to be setup depends on which video cards/drivers you have, see https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Hardwa … celeration .

Not possible, what comes closest is moderators moving posts/threads to the dustbin.
If you want that, report the post.


Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.
Did you use the guided installer ? If yes, I can't help you.

Ah yes, hardware... You mean like Guest Additions?

Yup. That'd be it Grasshopper.

The message is still there but the browser comes up.
