I had success of running DR by placing files to the separate dir and changing environment variables, as was shown in previous comments. I thought that it may be a good start for creating such a specific package. And then run applications something like this: progl-run davinci-resolve. I will take a look at the weekends.

@apaz I was gonna keep it after 20.40, but after 20.45 introduced a massive set of changes to the file list of the official tarball, I'm not even gonna try. Maybe somebody could replace the opencl packages with opencl-amd?

@apaz In the repo I have made a nice readme, describing info on how to update a pkgbuild

As for video editors, I really like a magnetic timeline feature, because it so much convenient and applicable for my type of videos (linux tutorials). When recording, I just can resay a mistaked sentence, and then just cut unneeded while previewing. Final Cut has its own drawbacks (macos with its buttons mess, un), DR has its own (no text box for titles). Unfortunately, no one else video editor provides this feature. Thanks for the list. I would like to try Olive.

@Ashark I am sorry about this, I hope someone will be able to keep the driver. Do you think it's okay to make a request on the forum to find a substitute?

[As for video editing on Linux I recommend you (from the most complete and difficult to the easiest): Cinelerra-GG Infinity Kdenlive Shotcut and Olive editor Openshot]

pkgbuild is now tested and working with some kink's and only on LTS kernel Read the readme on my github link, as it can break your system currently, will be fixing that when I have time.

gardotd426 commented on 2020-10-23 17:23

@apaz no, they're just saying they updated to the newest release. It will still have any issues it had previously.

Really the only parts from this that should ever be installed system-wide on Arch are vulkan-amdgpu-pro (and lib32-vulkan-amdgpu-pro) and the opencl packages.

apaz commented on 2020-10-23 14:23

@image28 I can't test now because I have video editing projects in progress... Maybe I didn't understand, are you saying that now amgpu-pro install and work (with your PKGBUILD) without the problems that prevented their use?

image28 commented on 2020-10-21 16:47

Updated my PKGBUILD installer to 20.40 ( still a work in progress towards simplifying package maintenance ). Currently untested will test today if I have time ( but it does build on my system ).

gardotd426 commented on 2020-10-16 20:31

@mbma. Yeah installing the pro drivers system-wide isn't an option on Arch. It breaks the system.

The only thing I can tell you is that you must be missing something, because it worked fflawlessly for me.

Here's what I have in the $LD_LIBRARY_PATH folder:


dri is a directory, the rest are files from the pro packages.

And then here is what's in the dri folder, which is the LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH location:

And that's it. Put all those files from the first list in folderA, then in folderB, then you can even test it real quick with LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/path/to/folderA LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH=/path/to/folderB dri_driver=amdgpu /opt/resolve/bin/resolve. It should work, and then you can just turn that into a script or a little shell command or whatever you want.
