Hi

Now exploring Resolve 14 BETA running with Linux.

BUT, I have problems with the installation of the Decklink driver (desktop Video 10.9)

...

BUT when I open Media express, it does not open, because it does not detect the hardware, same error opening Blackmagic Control panel, Not detect hardware, Resolve, when checking the options I / O does not detect the Blackmagic card.


Having this same issue. I used the Centos 7.3 + Resolve 12.5.5 install disc from Blackmagic, then updated to Resolve 14 and Desktop Video 10.9

It asked to update the firmware for the Decklink so I allowed it, and after restart it still does not show up as an interface. Not in Desktop Video Utility, and not in Resolve preferences.

The same system running on Centos 6.8 with Desktop Video 10.9 works fine though. So it must be something to do with Centos 7.

Resolved the CentOS 7 + Desktop Video 10.9 issue

Strangely the driver was loaded already and the card was detected according to the terminal commands in the readme, but I followed all the others to see if it would work. After using terminal with the following, the Decklink started working:

Code: Select all
sudo dkms install -m blackmagic -v 10.9a7 --all
sudo dkms install -m blackmagic-io -v 10.9a7 --all
sudo modprobe blackmagic
sudo modprobe blackmagic-io


Note: README incorrectly says to type "desktopvideo" instead of "blackmagic" and "blackmagic-io"

ok, so im running ubuntu 16.04 LTS, and decided to try the beta version. it installed easy enough with the supplied instructions. I can not get it to run. One error after another. So I would like to re move it and go to version 12 instead. How the heck do you uninstall? It is not showing as an installed app in synaptic and I don't know the terminal commands to remove apps like this...

Thanks

It launches fine but if i try to view any media from any media locations, the program will freeze then crash. It also crashes if I navigate away from the media pane and back into it.

It prints this to STDOUT when it crashes. https://hastebin.com/ahewetovig.txt


Specifications of the machine and the desktop environment in which you are working on?

Most of the time it is due to lack of ram, that is, if you are trying to import media, it will freeze for sometime while waiting for the machine to free some memory.


I'm running Arch Linux 64-bit with BSPWM on an older 6 core AMD processor with 16gb of memory and an RX 480 8gb. I don't think memory is an issue because I have plenty and usage never goes above 65%.

And also I should have been more clear. I can't even view any media whatsoever. If I click on a media location, the program crashes while loading the list of folder contents and thumbnails. I can't even get to the point where I could import media. If I drag media from a file manager, then the program freezes while loading the thumbnail (even for a tiny PNG) and then crashes.


So I was able to solve my issues. I needed to install opencl-amd from the AUR in order for it to work. Now it doesn't crash when I try to load media but now I have another problem. Resolve doesn't show any video or audio media whatsoever. It will only show images and I can't import any form of video or audio file at all. Anyone else have this problem?

I'm having the same issue - no sound, can't import videos nor audio (mp4 and mov get imported, but only the audio file appears to get imported and it doesn't work, not even when rendering).

Has anyone been able to check whether it is possible to get the audio through BMD USB cards like intensity etc? I really have no use of a decklink monitor card, so I'm wondering whether something more useful (to me) would do the trick.

David Franzo, THANKS

These commands worked perfect, in my configuration with CentOs7 + Desktop Video 10.9

sudo dkms install -m blackmagic -v 10.9a7 --all
sudo dkms install -m blackmagic-io -v 10.9a7 --all
sudo modprobe blackmagic
sudo modprobe blackmagic-io



NOTE: Blackmagic should give more attention to the supporting documents

EDIT: Now also support for 14.0b4. See updated script below.

For those of you who are running Debian or Debian based distributions (such as Ubuntu) I have updated my makeresolvedeb tool for making the Resolve installer into a proper Debian package. makeresolvedeb now supports both Studio and Lite version and no longer require root privileges to run (although you of course need root/sudo to install the resulting DEB package).

I have yet again been digging through the Resolve installer scripts and merged the procedures into a package that can be properly installed (and uninstalled!) using your preferred package management software (such as dpkg).

For Resolve 14 the panel daemon appears to be running better (at least the DaVinciPanelDaemon process behaves now) and I have included it in the package along with udev rules for the USB devices. Since I don't have a panel I can not verify this and, honestly, I'm not very keen on buying one until I know they're actually working properly in the Debian world.

I have tested this mainly on Debian Stretch with good results but I can take no responsibility for any problems this procedure may cause. Use at your own risk!

HOWTO - Resolve Studio
Download DaVinci_Resolve_Studio_14.0b4_Linux.zip from the BMD web site and download makeresolvedeb_14.0b4-1.sh.tar.gz from this post and place them in a new empty directory.
For example ~/resolvedeb

From a terminal, run:
cd ~/resolvedeb
unzip DaVinci_Resolve_Studio_14.0b4_Linux.zip
tar zxvf makeresolvedeb_14.0b4-1.sh.tar.gz
./makeresolvedeb_14.0b4-1.sh studio

After a while, if everything goes well, you end up with a DEB file:
davinci-resolve-studio_14.0b4-1_amd64.deb

HOWTO - Resolve Lite
Same procedure as for Resolve Studio but replace
DaVinci_Resolve_Studio_14.0b4_Linux.zip with DaVinci_Resolve_14.0b4_Linux.zip and
./makeresolvedeb_14.0b4-1.sh studio with ./makeresolvedeb_14.0b4-1.sh lite

Make sure you get the right version of the script below. It must match your version of Resolve.

anyone else having issues importing clips into Resolve Studio on Linux?

My Red camera clips show up fine as thumbnails but will not play in the player, they appear as black (blank) in the player but I can see the file is being loaded and accessed on my machine.

I've tried the latest drivers for my nVidia 1080ti cards. Tried Resolve 12 and 14.3 and can't seem to get it to work correctly.

I'm importing R3D files and ProRes files which play fine and load fine in Flame.

What gives?

Is the decoding color science set to Version 2? This should be default, but if it's set to Version 1 it will show up black. (Side note: I find this confusing because the new IPP2 would be called Version 3 I assume.) Also, do you have your preferences set to use the GPU for RED debayering? I think I unchecked it once to see my CPU performance and it didn't work. Not sure what else to suggest since RED clips work fine on my CentOS 7 install with dual GTX 1080s.

Thanks I have tried different RED settings but still nothings works.
I've tried using just one GPU but still nothing.

I am getting no clips to play in the player and I've tried R3D, ProRes, MP4... nothing will appear in the view and it plays but is blank. (black)

Maybe this is some GPU/driver trouble? Try setting the monitoring bit depth to 8 bit instead of 10 bit.

Just a Desktop Video specific note relating to Ubuntu 16.04: You should use the new Desktop Video 10.9.3 that went online on 5-29-2017.

This is not directly Resolve related, just a note to anyone using Desktop Video with Ubuntu 16.04.

Hey everyone,

I just installed Resolve 14 b3 on an Ubuntu Studio desktop and it appears to be free of playback/speed issues I had on a Mint distro. However, the same issue remains: no audio on playback (I turned on the "use system sound").

Does anyone know if this is intentional for the Linux version of Resolve 14? I've been seeing various input on this one (one saying it's a bug, the other saying it needs an external panel).

Thanks!

Hi,
just want to report my issues/solves:
Have old Decklink, 12.5 Resolve worked. Resolve 14b1-3 had very very/unuseable jerkie playback without audio. Hunted it down to bad/old decklink driver install. Only after purge/restart/reinstall latest decklink video driver Resolve 14 worked!
Only "issue" left compared to Resolve 12 is nearly allways short jerk after palybackstart. Seams video get resynced to audio everytime. Is kinda annoyingly on replay short part when play startup is jerky. Would be nice to have a setting to priories video to audio on syncing? its mainly a videocut SW so, video should be ok/smooth and if audioparts get droped/repoeated for sync its way less anoying? Or are there any other settings to fix this?
System: Ubunutu 16.04, GTX1070, AMD Quad, Decklink
PS: As often stated by Blackmagic, theres no Audiosupport on Linux, you need a Decklink. But SW is really great to work!

i've just read the 8 very long pages of this thread, because i was hoping someone would have a solution for the NO PICTURE in viewer (color tab) with 10 bit. but unfortunately, noone has a solution. and it is NOT a solution switching the video preview to 8 bit. I WANT TO COLOR CORRECT!!!! if i could only switch the video-preview from the viewer-window i would have no problem, but i think we are really talking of the video-bit-depth of the SDI-MONITORING, aren't we?

somebody mentioned he did a reinstall from the centos7.3 blackmagic iso, and then it worked, but i am NO LINUX EXPERT, unfortunately, so it would be really hell for me to install everything (10gig-e, thunderbolt-card, filesystems etc.) again, just to PERHAPS find the problem going away.

is blackmagic on this? dwaine didn't comment to the problem.

please dwaine, can you?

i am right now in the process of switching from mac osx to linux, invested a lot of money and this tiny little problem seems to be the deal-breaker...

THANKS in advance, for every comment or solution to this problem.

@Andi: No, you don't HAVE to do so. But if you don't, its on you to get the NVIDIA driver properly installed in place of Nouveau.

It would seem like you must have gotten most of the way there, or Resolve wouldn't run at all.

But what you are describing seems like it would be GPU related.

What NVIDIA driver do you have installed?

Can you provide a link to a Resolve log file? You can generate that file from within Resolve, by holding down the Alt key and selecting the Resolve Help menu, then select “Create Diagnostics Log On Desktop”

By the way, has anyone had any troubles installing, configuring and using a Decklink on an Ubuntu system? (Studio or not)

The Decklink drivers (Desktop Video) deb-packages are pretty solid. I've never had a problem really under Ubuntu or Debian. Stay within specs and you should be good to go. Ubuntu 14.04, 16.04, 16.10 are currently supported.

Regarding the laptop issue, I think our best option right now is the Intensity Shuttle for USB 3.0 or Tunderbolt.

@dwaine

thanks for chiming in! if i try to create a log file to the desktop resolve says
"og_archive_20170618-140419.tgz has been saved to the Desktop". but unfortunately
the file doesn't appear on the desktop :(. tried to start resolve via terminal as root, but
same same. tried to set 777 rights for the desktop folder, same same.... so i don't know
what i can do else...

i installed NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-381.09.run. which version is actually supported? i have an
older titan card for gui only and 2 new titan xps.

12 bit appears in the video monitoring section after installing the deckling 4k extreme 12g. so,
this could be a workaround, but in 12 bit i cant switch to video levels, which is a dealbreaker
as well....

any further tipps?

Thank you so much!

Not sure if I'll be choosing to mount something additional on my USB 3s (already have the mouse and an external eSATA drive on a combo-port). However, a Decklink card is starting to sound more and more desirable. My main -current- concern is that two out of my three systems crash on project select with beta 4 and the h.264 is still a ghost file. I could convert everything to image-sequences or uncompressed files, but I foresee my file server looking at me strange in the near future.

so, i spent my sunday installing centos a couple of times
because of the 10 bit video monitoring bug.

what i found out: if i am using the bmd-centos iso, 10 bit monitoring
works unless i dont restart the system. once restarted, black viewer
and monitor just like before!!!

please, why? later i can upload the logs. i did one right after
the install where everything seems to work fine, and one after
rebooting, where 10bit isnt working anymore...

meanwhile, anyone, any ideas???

thx in advance!

I had to give this one a shot.
I prepped one system with the latest official CentOS 7.
Installed it, updated it, blacklisted nouveau and all the side-drivers, performed an nVidia clean install (375.66) and made sure all the remaining pre-requisites were in place (mainly, the PNG lib).

I installed Davinci Resolve 14 beta 4.

Then I ran it... and -surprise- it crashed right after I double clicked on the empty project (crash dump on command-line attached).

davinci_resolve_crash.tar.gz
Command Line crash report
(7.8 KiB) Downloaded 1 time


Please note
  • Davinci at times chooses to not produce any crash report
  • Also, each time, the report can be different
  • On my Ubuntu Studio, one time it targets the nVidia card - next moment, a library - nothing definitive there
  • I downgraded to b3 on an Ubuntu Studio system and:
    • it loaded normally, passed the program manager and crashed on the media selection tab
    • downgraded to 12.5.6 and worked properly, only the color corrections went haywire after save - load
Any clues as to completely removing Davinci Resolve? Or is it a simple folder deletion?

Thank you!

@dwaine: thanks for the suggestion. unfortunately i can't really try this out right now, because after all the installation-pain i went through i decided to take the risk and work without rebooting the machine for this week. so far, everything seems to work fine, no fatal linux or davinci failures that forced a reboot.

after this color-grading-job latest or when i have to reboot for some yet unknown reason i will give it a shot and try those settings. but, could you get any information out of the logs? no clues whatsoever? when did you hear or read of those problems the first time? because what i don't understand is:
i am using hardware and software that is exactly the way you tell us via the configuration guide. how can i be the only one with this problem? resolve runs on linux for ages, right? i use the recommended 7048 supermicro-server, decklink 4k extreme 12G, even invested in the mini panel (i used cooper exclipse before, but no linux support) and it is hard for me that no matter what i try, there is this one particular 10bit-monitoring issue, that won't go away.

ok, sorry for the whining,

please help ;)

Re: DaVinci Resolve on Linux - Install issues

PostTue Jun 20, 2017 5:25 pm

Very Important Update to my previous post:

All the aforementioned issues I encounter on both Ubuntu Studio & CentOS, do not appear on my AMD RX480 system (also runs Ubuntu Studio) under the AMDGPU-Pro 17.10 drivers.

Therefore I believe those problems tend to appear in older nVidia cards (which had a crash as far as Fairlight). The other two systems run on a 425M 1GB (not 420) and 580GTX 1.5GB OC.

On ubuntu 17.04 (GNOME interface) the 14.04 works but I can't save the color correction, so I do a grading, save the project but when I reopen the project all widget are reset to default.
All trim and others edit operations are saved so the file is effective saved but not the color correction.

Using DR 14.04 on 17.04 Linux Mate with 4.10.....Kernel, no problems saving colour corrections or any other settings. Perhaps it's a permissions problem?

I think not, I have try on different computer with same result, also because the project is saved in all others part, is not total unsaved like a wrong permission of write.

Anyway on Mate you haven't problem, I will try Mate, on Centos all works right but that system is a pain for all other software and kernel update.
