@nixit I believe I did- this is the output from my curl --version

I don't have libcurl-compat, but I tried to downgrade that as well.

@rjhilgefort, have you tried downgrading curl and lib32-curl as suggested?

rjhilgefort commented on 2020-12-28 00:54

It doesn't install for me and hasn't for a month or so now. I get the splash screen and "looking for control surface" and then it just crashes. This is what the log output is. Anyone know how to fix this? Or, does anyone know of a video editing utility that works well on linux?

@ghfujianbin you are right, downgrading only curl is enough.

ghfujianbin commented on 2020-12-14 06:21

@kumen, For me downgrading curl and lib32-curl fixes the problem, 'cause I don't have libcurl-compat. Thanks for pointing me to the right direction.

nixit commented on 2020-12-13 23:36


thanx for the info. I didn't think of those 2 packages b/c they were updated for me early last week and DRS 16 worked for a few days after that update. Since 17 beta is working for me, I may just keep with that version as I already updated my resolve database and worked on my projects since.

kumen commented on 2020-12-13 22:32

Downgrading curl and libcurl-compat to version 7.73.0 solved crash on startup from 12.12. 2020. No reboot needed for me.

ghfujianbin commented on 2020-12-13 20:51

@nixit If you've got the studio version. The best way to get this figured out is to contact their support maybe? I've posted a report on their forum, but I don't think it'll get their attention any time soon. Anyway really appreciate you taking time to reply to my question.

nixit commented on 2020-12-13 20:45

@ghfujianbin, I wish I could say, I used yay to install it, and it took a while so I occupied myself with something different seeing as I spent 1 day trying to get 16 to work again.

when I returned it was installed, didn't notice any errors, and my shortcut worked.

if it helps, my system specs are: ASRock 970 Extreme4 | AMD FX 8350 | 32GB G.SKILL Ripjaw X | 180GB Corsair Force Series GS SSD | MSI GeForce GTX 960 GTX Gaming 4G 4GB

@nixit I've got a lot of permission error while trying to 'makepkg -s' DR 17 beta. Did you also encounter those while building the studio version?
