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.

Here are my most up-to-date notes on installing on preparing CentOS 7.6 for Resolve from scratch: https://sethgoldin.github.io/install-da ... ve-centos/

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.

the install was indeed painless. HOWEVER I discovered that CentOS needed updating to the tune of 900+ updates . Following installation and a restart i discover that the Nvidia drivers have been removed .. what can I do about that ?

[ there are other possible complications following these updates which I have yet to discover ]

Just use ELRepo for kmod-nvidia and make sure to also install the ELRepo yum plugin.

This is the problem I have with CentOS. Things that require nothing more than an apt-get in Ubuntu, end up being a painful project in CentOS. Nvidia drivers are one example, but there are at least an order of magnitude more up to date applications readily available for a simple install on Ubuntu.

Cheers.

Did you try Fusion16 standalone with Ubuntu/Debian?

I have massive performance losings when testing against Fusion9.
And Fusion inside Resolve 16 is pretty unstable.

I think it's GPU related, of course support will not help, since they stick to their CentOS....

Fusion releases have worked for me on Ubuntu 18.04/19.04/CentOS on a Lenovo Y500 laptop and nothing else. Four other more powerful machines, including under CentOS, die a system trap death.

I would love to use Fusion, but it's no where near there yet, at least on Linux.

@Noel Sterrett:

Thanks for the replay.
I am having hard times with Fusion16 on Ubuntu 18.04
It does not recognize my graphics car, the Fusion Console Output on top left says:

Code: Select all
FusionCore library not found
Warning: No usable GPU devices found.



and so rendering is very slow, still sticking to Fusion9 :-(

Is there anything we should be aware of... with Centos 8.0 being released next week?
