You could try the other Linux thread stickied in this forum: viewtopic.php?f=21&t=56878

It’s title may say Linux Install Issues but 20 pages in it’s already way more than that, so it seems like a fitting place. Or you could make another thread :) There’s plenty of places on these forums (even in the Off-Topic ones: viewforum.php?f=14). I’d be more than down to have a Linux back and forth debate, I find them fun. But without congesting actual support threads (this one is stickied for a reason).

Cheers,
Mike

Mike, I'm grateful again. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

Hey guys!

is there a new official Blackmagic ISO based on CentOS with Resolve 15 now that's out of beta?

Do some of you have the link to it?

Thanks!!!!!!!!

A new ISO? I don’t believe so. But you can just download Resolve 15 and install it normally. Just make sure you install at least the minimum required driver version (or CUDA) version and you’ll be fine.

Cheers,
Mike

As always, the link to the current build image ISO is in the Linux Installation Instructions PDF file that is part of the Linux Resolve software download from the BMD site.

There is a new ISO for 15, but it's basically the same as the last 14.3 ISO with the exception of the install files in /opt/resolve/Releases being replaced with the Resolve 15 Studio installer, and the inclusion of the 390.42 NVIDIA driver required for Resolve 15.

Greetings, Dwaine.
For Linux newbies, has anything been added to the LINUX ISO that improves ease of quickly launching Resolve 15 -- without the enduser having to scrape up ftom the Internet, installer packages for other drivers such as some required to get Fairlight page to fully work?

Or is everything already there (barring some Linux drivers needed for connected peripherals)?

If you build a system drive with our ISO build image, Resolve should just work, assuming you have proper hardware. The build image is NVIDIA centric. It won't work with AMD GPUs.

After building the drive, you still have to install the Resolve app itself, which is in the /opt/resolve/Releases folder. As per the Linux Install Instructions PDF, also in that folder.

Also, the current build image has Desktop Video 10.9.7. If you have a DeckLink 8K card, you'd need to install Desktop Video 10.11.2. Details for doing that are also in the PDF.

Oh, OK Thanks for that.
Do know, Dwaine, that every additional effort you and your cohorts will yet put into enhancing the ease of installation, setup and smooth, comprehensive functionality of Resolve for Linux is hugely appreciated.

A growing number of us creatives are ever more fed up with the bloated complexities and drivers-breaking shenanigans of later Windows and OSX iterations from Microsoft and Apple, respectively.

totally agree with Pete!

so much that I think you could plan a very nice thing for the future:

a sort of BMD distro, based on something but with your repos and with easy installation and update of the system.

I think it would make A TON of users really happy...

Tommaso is really onto something -- and I believe Blackmagic Design would do well to protect their own interests by ensuring that their software development efforts on the Linux platform also moves in the direction of developing a Resolve for Linux variant that leverages new technologies while also maximizing stability and security.

Sadly, it appears to this newbie at least-- that the Resolve for Linux tradition does little to secure new technologies for the Linux base of BMD endusers.

Of particular interest to me at least, is that
Linux [Debian flavors] would lend to more simplified OS upgrades and system tweaks without packages' dependencies getting in the way of clean, speedy setup and maintenance for users.

If I'm arguing for a solid Debian based Resolve for Linux distribution to be run alongside the RHEL/CentOS variant, so be it. Then let the Resolve endusers "vote" to give BMD the impetus to move forward with whichever flavor we decide.

I beg Blackmagic Design to hire additional, bright, efficient, experienced software coders [expert in Fedora maybe?] to get this proposed, new approach to meeting customer needs, addressed with enthusiastic intentionally.

Yeah why not!
Also I should add BMD could also get in touch with Paragon to have their distro shipped with reliable HFS+ and NTFS/EXFAT support built in.

Just a noob question; why use DR on Linux ? What's the advantage compared to PC/Mac ?
I use Linux/UNIX at work; couldn't think of having an editing software run on that.

Just a few advantages I can think of:
DaVinci Resolve Studio 15.2.0.033
CentOS Linux 7.3 [Blackmagic Design custom ISO]
Windows 10 Pro 1803 17134.376
HP Z8 G4
1x Intel® Xeon® Gold 6136
48 GB (6x8 GB) DDR4-2666 ECC Registered RAM
1x GeForce GTX 1080 Ti

I should add:

- More stable OS usually
- No Antivirus required ;-)
- More control on resources

I should add:
• No requirement for costly upgrades (as is the case with "Micro$haft Windblows"
• Lesser likelihood of losing use of connected peripherals due to broken drivers after upgra as is often the case with recent OS iterations from Micro$haft & Apple.
• Generally more speedy OS performance, likely, depending of course, on Linux variant, system optimizations and installation scheme.
