Unable to get Davinci Resolve to worl


I am trying to install Davinci Resolve on Arch Linux, however, not having much luck here.

My hardware:

- Ryzen 3600X
- 16GB RAM
- RX580 4GB (DVI port) - as I can tell, this is likely the issue, I've installed it flawlessly with Nvidia GPU.

I've tried dozens of guides and troubleshooting posts, nothing seems to work.

lakimens@archlinux ~> tail .local/share/DaVinciResolve/logs/ResolveDebug.txt 
/opt/resolve/libs/Fusion/ [0x7fce19390d98]
/opt/resolve/libs/Fusion/ [0x7fce191a185e]
/opt/resolve/libs/Fusion/ [0x7fce191a1906]
/opt/resolve/libs/Fusion/ [0x7fce191a27b7]
/opt/resolve/bin/../libs/Fusion/ [0x7fcf11c3d1b9]
/usr/lib/ [0x7fcefea2c299]
/usr/lib/ [0x7fcefc460053]
Signal Number = 11

The above is the current log I am getting, I've been through a few by now. Initially, it was stuck on "Looking for Surface", then I got to being stuck on "Loading Fairlight Page", and now it crashes on "Loading Fairlight Page".

This guide gave me the most hope:
I went through it, I just wasn't able to find opencl-amdgpu-pro-pal.

After all that, running

glxinfo | grep "OpenGL vendor string" | cut -f2 -d":" | xargs

still returns


Thanks for the help!

Getting Davinci Resolve to work with amd cards on archlinux is tricky.

According to does work on a RX580 using  .

Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.

(A works at time B)  && (time C > time B ) ≠  (A works at time C)

There's a workaround exactly for Davinci Resolve in the wiki.
Also you can automate the whole process with bash and point the shortcut to a script like this one:


if pacman -Q amdgpu-pro-libgl &> /dev/null      # check wether or not propertary OpenGL is installed
    then                                        # if installed then ...
        davinci-resolve                         # run davinci-resolve
    else                                        # if not
    yay -S --noconfirm amdgpu-pro-libgl         # silently install from AUR
    davinci-resolve                             # then run davinci-resolve

# Wait for davinci-resolve to close
until ! pidof davinci-resolve &> /dev/null
        sleep 5

# When davinci-resolve is closed remove the package
yay -Rs --noconfirm amdgpu-pro-libgl

(Edit: Workaround is not necessary anymore, just start it with progl prefix as described in the wiki.)
