Davinci Resolve won't recognize my GPUs


I installed my NVIDIA drivers for my system following those indications:


$ git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/nvidia-470xx-utils.git
$ cd nvidia-470xx-utils/
$ curl -o PKGBUILD.diff http://ix.io/4zP5 # Download patch
$ git apply -v PKGBUILD.diff # Apply patch
$ makepkg -rsi # Build and install updated 470xx packages

And installed yay -S opencl-nvidia-470xx

However, although Davinci can launch now, it won’t recognize my Gpus.

I checked my install with DaVinci Resolve Checker https://github.com/Ashark/davinci-resolve-checker and it says:

Not found opencl platforms with appropriate GPUs. Check that you have installed corresponding driver. Otherwise you cannot run DR.

However I did install opencl with yay -S opencl-nvidia-470xx.

What could be wrong?

PS: I had the same problem, which was solved: https://forum.endeavouros.com/t/using-davinci-resolve-video-editor/42439/16

But that was before the NVIDIa drivers problem I encountered: https://forum.endeavouros.com/t/help-installing-nvidia-drivers/42846/15

Thank you for any help.

Did you ever solve your issue?

I was able to get the NVIDIA GPU recognized by Davinci by making all my NVIDIA opencl and other NVIDIA drivers are the same version as noted in similar issue here:


however, videos are just blank and Davinci cant do any playback; just freezes or videos and vidoe thumbanils are always black.

I am on a laptop and this only happens on dedicated GPU mode; if I change to Optimius/hybrid mode (AMD chip instead of NVIDIA 4060) Davinci can do video playback and videos work ok (but rendering is insanely slow cause its using the AMD lowpower card) .

For now my solution is to use Davinci on a system I have Ubuntu 22 installed (on the same desk beside my daily driver which is EndeavorOS)
