By spreaded word or tested under real world conditions, on which distros?

Micah, if that's the case, then that solves it for me! BMPCC 4k it is! I'd run CentoOS on one hard drive then Linux Mint on another. I always run dual Linux systems anyway for backup purposes.

Re: Lightworks and Centos7? 1 year, 1 month ago #183187

Great! It was part of the official press release.

I know a few guys who've ran it on Antergos, CentOS, and Ubuntu. I am having a hard time getting it to install right on Fedora KDE, due to GFX drivers. I'm probably going to switch to CentOS in the near future and even go ahead and just install BMD's official CentOS release. I'm getting tired of Fedora's short life cycle anyway!

Pending on the graphics drivers and cards used.. I have had no issues running both Lightworks and Davinci Resolve with no issues at all.

After a lot of trial and error ( and some rookie mistakes ) I was able to install most of what I needed with the need to download only a couple RPMs that didn't come with the install.

Granted I am using some (old) hot hardware ( ASUS Z9PE-D8 WS Dual 12 core 64gigs of ram and a crap tonne of storage) the audio worked out of the box ( on the on board audio device --> digital optical out ) programs are snappy... no need to dual boot.

I did try ubuntu or Debian like distros at first to have audio issues with Resolve but no issues with Lightworks.. I might give it a shot again down the line but really have no need since I have what I need/desire..

be warned .. I would go get a fresh Centos7.5 ( build number 18xx).

Again ( possible rookie mistake ) I was able to corrupt my OS doing updates and such but after a 7.5 install .. smooth as silk.

One of my off prem test systems has an (super) old ATI running on a quad core socket 1366 and have zero issues...

Wish you all happy editing and color correcting...

Awesome!! And you said the distro both are running smooth on is CentOS?!

It would make sense, that really is the standard distro in the video/movie industry!

You say you are using CentOS with older hardware, with particular mention of a legacy graphics card, which means you are probably running a legacy radeon driver instead of AMD GPU PRO. Installing Lightworks does bring in dependencies, so it makes sense if things work better on older hardware. CentOS is not known for having newer software so older machines running CentOS 7 and attendant proprietary software like Resolve and Lightworks. So we can say that Nvidea hardware and legacy AMD ATI hard/software can run both programs on CentOS---if I am reading all this correctly.

You read correctly... I dont have a new(ish) card on hand but if someone is willing to donate one for me to test I can do it with the quickness.. But my experience with CentOS so far with both Resolve and Lightworks are very positive and I have it currently running on a prod system at my home studio. Reading other forums regarding anything Radeon(AMD) has been a mixed bag.. ~BUT that don't mean it wont work. even with my "TeamGreen" set up I still had to be careful on how I installed stuff once I got a good feeling for it: it worked ( and still works ) solid as a tank.

~Take this as tounge and cheek... I am a fan of the Debian distros .. however at work I do use RHEL based distros and to be honest I have adopted the "Linux is Linux" attitude but I am careful with that for the fact that even though I did get Resolve to install on an Ubuntu system it wasn't the best experience. I am sure with a little more hair pulling and pleading to the Programing Gurus I would have found a solution but a looming deadline forced the issue... and guess what ? Audio? worked Black Magic Design Cards.. Worked , Firmware update ? Flawless, Lightworks? ( to be honest ran snappier on CentOS so I "pulled the plug" and pushed everything there.. I have my content management box ( which is Ubuntu) running Lightworks and it is fine. but I have leaned more on my CentOS box more and more when I want to get stuff done.

Very true: RHEL based distros are NOT known for cutting edge.. ( hence 'Enterprise Linux" it is built for stability.) some RPMS are not in the repositories and just like any other distro you have to add them from time to time or download an RPM or two to solve dependencies that a 'yum' command with the default repos just don't get the job done.

But my offer still stands.. if someone has a current gen card ( cheap that they can spare ) for a test. I can sus out what is needed to work and post it for those that are frustrated and running into similar issues as laid out here. I currently have 4 builds that I must get done so my discresionary funds for buying test hardware is rather limited. But if things look up I will look for a vega based card and give it a go ( oh By the way OpenCL will be your friend in the long run.)

PEACE!

I downloaded the Lightworks beta version for Ubuntu 18.04 and it installed and ran a-okay. I could not sign in, because the software thought I was still on Windows. I had to email Jakub at Lightworks and he set me right. (Thanks Jakub)

Ubuntu runs much better and more stable than CentOS. Goodbye Win-doze.

I will let you know how deeper use works out. But am thrilled to get Lightworks (beta) running on Linux with AMD GPU PRO.

Would be interesting to hear if/how BM Resolve works on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, in particular if recommended NVidia GPU isn't present.

I tried various times the different beta versions and gave up on it. and if i remember right error messages regarding the absence of Nvidia was one of the things. but nevertheless in the official release version things could be different...

Lightworks Stable did not work on Ubuntu and the idea of running a beta version for work-related projects does not inspire confidence, but who knows. Maybe the experience will be a pleasant surprise. Am not going to jump into Resolve just yet. Getting Lightworks running is already a big deal.

Just consider V14.5 RC 11 to be the current stable release and V14.0 the last beta. In fact, Bionic Beaver stable has been officially released long after V14.0 release date which explains the issues. Not V14.0 has been updated, but the existing problems have been fixed with V14.5.
