But once you manage to install on linux, you will have more power available just for DR than on windows ;)

Thanks for the thought, but could you expand on that? I know Resolve is supposed to use the GPU for some functions, but I've heard varying claims on what exactly the free version can use the GPU for and how much acceleration I can expect. And what does the Linux version leverage better than the Windows or Mac versions?


If I'm not mistaken, the free version has no limitations as far as GPU acceleration except for Deliver - where you export your final file. 264/265 is not supported in the free version on Linux, and encoding is only supported in Studio if you have nVidia GPU. This means, with AMD GPU, you will have to export to something like DNxHD (which will be OpenCL accelerated) and then use ffmpeg (x264) to make your final 264 encode - which will likely be better final result anyway.

AAC (phones, gopros etc) is also not supported on linux at all.

I don't think it is true to state that you will get faster Linux performance in Resolve. Puget Systems' DR14 tests show that they are pretty much on par, overall (I'm not allowed to post urls, but you can easily google it)
As a reference, I use Resolve Studio on CentOS 7 with AMD GPU (Radeon VII).

Are you all having trouble with ELRepo’s package for `kmod-NVIDIA.x86_64`, which is for 430.14?

Running into some sort of weird issue, in which because Xorg is 1.20, the package referencing 1.19 somehow doesn’t work.

Can’t start `gdm` at boot. Any help would be appreciated...

I do, and have had no luck at all getting it to work on Linux. Oil and Water.

The short answer is yes. If you've been around that long, you can't help realize Unix/Linux/Irix/Xenix/etc. has also been around a long time and unlike some of us will be around for a long time to come.

This is not due to expensive marketing. It is because it is far and away the most elegant OS thus far invented by human beings.

And it's not just elegant, it is lean, mean, open, stable, and powerful all at the same time. And by the way, it is also free! Not just fee from cost, but free from others deciding when you will upgrade and what you will have to agree to in order to do that. You can actually own your computer. And if you like, you can also browse the source code, along with millions of others, to see that everything you do is not being recorded.

In the broader sense you are part of a community. One that is not driven entirely by money.

So by all means, do it. Get your feet wet with CentOS, and then try a more up to date version with a huge selection of pre-compiled binary applications like Ubuntu.

Fair winds, and following seas.

I just assembled a new Ryzen threadripper / X399 / nVidia system, installed Ubuntu 19.04, nVidia 430 drivers and OpenCL.

I then clicked on the Resolve 16b5 .run file, followed the prompts, and voila!

I'm not sure how it could have been less painful.
