The sha236 checksum is still wrong as of writing this. Similar to what attackercow said, if you're using Pamac ('Add/Remove Software' on Manjaro), you can click 'Edit build files' before starting the download, and in the PKGBUILD, edit where it says:


And replace it with:

I could confirm the sha256 checksum is wrong. My quick work around is to edit the PKGBUILD manually and running makepkg -si in the cloned repo.

I can confirm the checksum changed. I also get 7d34fec7ab5c70b78a6f6c8760444fa14b253c350b05e775aa1b66c92c99d472 for the free version.

Looks like free version checksum has hanged.

I'm getting the following error:

==> Add lib symlinks...
ln: failed to create symbolic link 'libs/': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().
error making: davinci-resolve


124         echo -e "\033[1m==> Add lib symlinks...\033[0m"
125         cd "${pkgdir}/opt/${_pkgname}/" || exit
126         ln -s /usr/lib/ libs/
127         ln -s /usr/lib/ libs/

The folder is missing:

$ ls pkg/davinci-resolve/opt/resolve/
 configs   DolbyVision   easyDCP   Fairlight   GPUCache   logs   Media  'Resolve Disk Database'

Looking at PKGBUILD I see that there's a functionality to create the missing folders, but I do not see the ${pkgdir}/opt/${_pkgname}/libs folder in that list. I don't see any changes in the git logs, so I'm assuming it might be a change in the new source files.

110         echo -e "\033[1m==> Creating missing folders...\033[0m"
111         mkdir -p -m 0775 "${pkgdir}/opt/${_pkgname}/"{configs,DolbyVision,easyDCP,Fairlight,GPUCache,logs,Media,"Resolve Disk Database",.crashreport,.license,.LUT}                                         
112         mkdir -p "${pkgdir}/usr/share/"{applications,desktop-directories,icons/hicolor,mime/packages}

I have the same problem with missing on a fresh install.

I found that this file is expected to be in /opt/resolve/libs. After copying it from a 17.2 installation (other machine) I got several other libs missing, all expected to be in /opt/resolve/libs. After I copied the whole libs folder from the 17.2 installation (only add 61 files, not replacing existing) now resolve at least starts. But I got no audio, it complains with a popup window "Fairlight interface version in library (1721278 doesn't match with what is used in Resolve (1730280).

Maybe there was something overseen in the packaging process? Thank you for feedback, help and maintaining! Sven

I'm missing a lot of librarie dependencies on launch (nvidia, in case it matters). It was complaining about libc++ and qt5-multimedia, which I easily installed (should in the library dependency list, tbh). Then the program is asking me for, and I have no way of finding that one. Tried "pkgfile", "pacman -Fy", and nothing works.

What am I missing here?

Could you add the correct category in the .desktop file please?

Here's the spec:

The installer is not functioning properly. I would try and mess with it, but I'm pretty new to Arch and linux as a whole so I still have a lot to learn. Here is the error output thought. Hope this helps

@mirh Wow, that's something new in the new version! I think it is unrelated with your links, because the discussion was long ago, but behavior changed with rather recent updates. DR launched. But still unable to use it with intel only. I have updated the wiki.
