DaVinci Resolve 17 Installation Issues --GPU issues

It is prompting that

GPU is Unsupported
Please review the GPU drivers and GPU
configuration under preferences.

My System Specifications
AMD Ryzen 5 5500U Hexa Core CPU with Integrated GPU
8GiB RAM 512 GiB SSD

For Ubuntu based Distros there is a solution in the web
https://odysee.com/@LinuxH2O:a/How-to-install-DavinCi-resolve-on-Linux-Ubuntu-Fedora-Arch:9

I read on the video it is for How to install DaVinci Resolve 17 on Linux (Ubuntu, Fedora, Arch)

Yes but if you look into the video, it is performed on Ubuntu and package with same name is not available.

I used dnf search and got these results

Hi Hemanth,

it seems, that bringing together Davinci resolve and Amd-gpu is not as simple, as it is with nvidia.
I have a consumer workstation from HP, a newer one, with an nvidia card. After installing the cuda repo from nvidia davinci startet without errors.

Concerning amd I found these two links via Google:

  1. [GUIDE] Install amdgpu-pro OpenCL in Fedora 32 - Ask Fedora (fedoraproject.org)
  2. DaVinci Resolve on Fedora 31 with AMD GPU : Fedora (reddit.com)
    Maybe it will help you.

Greets H.-P.

With nvidia, when you install the driver from rpmfusion it automatically supports opencl. When you are using amd the open source drivers are not the same and the links above explain how-to.

I installed mesa-libOpenCL and the DaVinci Resolve opened up but nothing is working. I added a video it is showing the playback and can’t work around with any of the controls.

I installed amdgpu as mentioned in the guide but it has done nothing better than mesa-libOpenCL as the same issue continue to continue like DaVinci Resolve open but I’m unable to do any work in it. To simply say it’s been useless though it runs.

I thought maybe my hardware is insufficient but No! it’s completely working fine on Windows but not Linux.
