apt – libavcodec: undefined symbol vaSyncBuffer

I just upgraded to Kubuntu 22.10, the update was successful completely minus FFmpeg.

Things I’ve tried:

  • Install an older FFmpeg from Ubuntu sources
  • Install master FFmpeg from source
  • Install FFmpeg 5.1.2 from source
  • Install FFmpeg 5.0.1 from source
  • Install older libav stuff from Ubuntu sources
  • Reinstall current FFmpeg from Ubuntu sources
  • Reinstall libva2

This always results in the same thing:
ffmpeg: symbol lookup error: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libavcodec.so.59: undefined symbol: vaSyncBuffer
It seems as if some other dependency of FFmpeg is calling libavcodec59 and is having issues with it

Things I cannot do:

  • Uninstall libva2, as there are too many dependencies

I do have some amdgpu drivers installed, so let me know if you need to know more about them.


Ubuntu - 22.10 Kinetic Kudu (Kubuntu)
kernel - 5.19.0-23-generic
libva2 - 2.15.0-1
