@cschmid, maybe you have to import videos in MJPEG format: ffmpeg -i INPUT_VIDEO.MP4 -codec:video mjpeg -q:v 3 -an OUTPUT_VIDEO.AVI

About bzip2, maybe instead of arguing on bugtracker, just edit the davinci-resolve PKGBUILD to provide that symlink?

cschmid commented on 2019-07-08 08:01

Added a request to reopen the libbzip2 bug ticket in order to add the missing symlink again (

@Weby: Thank you, that is much more elegant than downgrading. I can start the app now, however I don't see any video playback / video preview. All vidio display is simply missing.

Does anybody know how to fix that?

Weby commented on 2019-07-07 07:48

Apparently, bzip2 version 1.0.7 (the latest as of right now) removes the /usr/lib/ symlink.

You could manually re-add it by issuing the following command : sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

No clue why they removed that symlink.

Be wary that in doing so, the next update of libbz2 might not work properly (you probably will need to remove the /usr/lib/ file before upgrading bzip2).

As the ticket suggests, as a temporary workaround for the "error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file library" issue, the bzip2 library can be downgraded to libz2 1.0.6

Steps that did the trick for me:

ls /var/cache/pacman/pkg | grep bzip2

,# choose a bzip2 version prior to 1.0.7. It worked for me with 1.0.6-8, which I will use in the following command:

sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/bzip2-1.0.6-8-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

,# it should now run without an error message (only some warnings appear):

@Weby: I have bzip2 installed, but thank you for your attemt to help.

However, there seems to be a regression in bzip2 1.0.7 of missing symlinks according to this recently created bugticket I just found: This ticket has been closed though in favor of this one which has been closed too whith the argument "The soname is, so everything is correct here " I think this ticket needs to be reopened, as not everything is correct there.

Weby commented on 2019-07-07 06:44

@cschmid install bzip2.

@satriani please add bzip2 dependency.

cschmid commented on 2019-07-07 06:16

The application does not start. Starting from command line shows the error output:


/opt/resolve/bin/resolve: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

(same issue on the davinci-resolve-beta package too)

Weby commented on 2019-06-18 18:21

Please remove the qt4 dependency.

Not supported officially by Arch anymore, and the whole installation and runtime of Resolve seems to function perfectly fine without it here.

Ashark commented on 2019-06-04 14:17

@satriani, This package should depend opencl-icd-loader instead of ocl-icd.
