The subject says it all.

Desktop Video 11.0 now works with CentOS 7.6, for those that were needing that.

Dwaine,

Can you say if 15.2.4 Studio works OK on upstream vanilla 7.6, and if so, what NVIDIA driver to use?

Just curious as to whether it could be advisable to use 7.6, so as to not be stuck on the BMD-provided build of 7.3.

I can't say. Let us know.

Would recommend you use NVIDIA 390.42, as per the Linux Installation Instructions.

Pleased to report that I have 15.3 Studio up and running on the most up-to-date CentOS 7.6.

To avoid the pain of switching over to a virtual terminal and stopping gdm, installing the right version of gcc, etc. in order to install the 390.42 NVIDIA driver, I just installed, in this order:
  1. EPEL
  2. DKMS
  3. ELRepo
  4. kmod-nvidia-390xx.x86_64
As of today, kmod-nvidia-390xx.x86_64 package installed 390.116. If NVIDIA follows semantic versioning best practices, that should be safe, despite BMD only having tested 390.42.

I should note that there was one weird little hitch with desktopvideo-11.0a18.x86_64.rpm. It never completed the installation "cleanly." It threw some error about already being loaded, and advised that I reboot to load it properly. I rebooted, uninstalled, reinstalled, and got the same error. I rebooted again and installed Resolve to see if the DeckLink had properly installed. It did, and it's all working fine.

I'm pleased to report that desktopvideo-11.1a11.x86_64.rpm is working well on CentOS-7.6-1810, running kernel 3.10.0-957.10.1.el7.x86_64.

There is, however, a strange little built-in error message after the installation completes:
Code: Select all
********************************************************************************
Reboot required to reload driver!

The driver failed to load. The most likely cause is that the driver is
in use. Please try rebooting to load the new driver
********************************************************************************

I'm well aware that a reboot is required--that's already mentioned in the Resolve installation instructions. Perhaps a less frantic reminder would suffice? ;)
