Thanks @satriani. That aspect is fixed, but there's still an issue:

`Creating Common Data Dir : /var/BlackmagicDesign/DaVinci Resolve

mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/var/BlackmagicDesign’: Permission denied

DaVinci Resolve installed to /home/steve/.cache/yay/davinci-resolve-beta/pkg/davinci-resolve-beta/opt/resolve`

If I go to that path, then bin, then run resolve, it runs, but it's in my home folder rather than /var.

@pulser: thank you, the error seems to be fixed.

bsdtar replacement does help, however getting a subsequent error:

install: cannot stat 'share/DaVinciResolvePanelSetup.desktop': No such file or directory

pulser commented on 2020-11-22 22:46

A possible fix for the bsdtar error:


bsdtar x -f ${_installer_binary} -C "${pkgdir}/opt/${_pkgname}"


./${_installer_binary} -i -y -n -a -C "${pkgdir}/opt/${_pkgname}"

Hello, thanks for updating the package to 17.0b1! Unfortunately, I am getting this error while trying to install:

bsdtar: Error opening archive: Unrecognized archive format

@Ashark thank you! Yeah, I think it would be worth it for newcomers link myself. Appreciate the help!

@Ashark, very true, but there is a 17b package available for Linux, which is relevant to bringing new features to Linux. I think that's what Kureta is referring to.

@rjhilgefort currently the PKGBUILD is made such way, that it installs resolve to its own opt directory. So you may just create a symlink called davinci-resolve in /usr/bin and point it to /opt/resolve/bin/resolve. I personally made a script there instead of symlink, because I wanted some variables to be changed before launch. Probably, worth mentioning this in wiki.
