AMD 5700 XT working Blender and DaVinci. How i solved it.

Post by CrazyfoxSR »

For almost a year i did not find a way to make DaVinci Resolve work when i change my graphic card, form nvidia to AMD. I tried a lot of things and search a lot of forums , ask over chats and forums and noting worked.
Few days ago Youtube propose to me this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DuOxfD4 ... uxGameCast. From that i find this site https://linuxgamecast.com/2023/02/davin ... u-drivers/.
Since it is for Ubuntu i tried to play with that. So i download drivers like i read on site https://repo.radeon.com/amdgpu-install/ ... -1_all.deb After research I start this code:

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg -i *.deb

Code: Select all

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
and then

Code: Select all

amdgpu-install --vulkan=pro --opencl=rocr --accept-eula
I remove legacy part and add --accept-eula since it won`t install without it.
During installation i got this error :

Code: Select all

Error! Could not locate dkms.conf file.
.
On this site https://devicetests.com/fix-error-dkms- ... tu-upgrade I found this script:

Code: Select all

for i in /var/lib/dkms/*/[^k]*/source; do [ -e "$i" ] || echo "$i";done
.
So i find directory that have missing files , in my case
/var/lib/dkms/amdgpu/6.2.4-1683306.22.04/source
and i copy it where miss it.
I start installation again :

Code: Select all

amdgpu-install --vulkan=pro --opencl=rocr --accept-eula
.
Then i continue to follow instruction from site:

Code: Select all

sudo usermod -a -G video yourusername
sudo usermod -a -G render yourusername
reboot it and finally Blender HIPs and DaVinci working.

AMD should do better job in writing installation for drivers.
I did not find this solution anywhere, but if it already exist on this site , please delete it .

There have been a lot of problems with the AMD drivers from the AMD website not installing the ROCm part properly in the past. This may have just been a timing issue in that AMD finally fixed the issues and it wasn't anything you were doing wrong. It was a problem with the drivers and their related packages. (I helped enough people in the past with this issue to know the drivers were the problem. :| )

Well I did try to install drivers right before this little project and i tried to start Bleder every step of the way. I agree that timeing is one part of solution, but it wasn`t good enough to work at the end.
