Reactor Won't Install on Resolve 16.1.1 Linux

I drag the .lua file over, select install and activate, and it returns an error saying it can't find curl:

Code: Select all


[Reactor Installer] Version 3.141 - October 31, 2019

[Created By] Andrew Hazelden <>

[Reactor Installer] Detected Resolve 16.11 running on Linux.

[GitLab Branch] "master"

[Reactor.cfg] Does not exist yet

[Reactor] Installation Started

[Reactor: PathMap] "/var/BlackmagicDesign/DaVinci Resolve/Fusion/Reactor/"

Installation Status Step 1 of 8

[Downloads Started]

[string "lj2curl/curl_ffi"]:1440: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
This is a standard centos install on my render box, so no hacks needed to get resolve/fusion working in the first place.

i'm fairly sure this isn't correct, as curl seems to work fine on the rest of the system

any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm inexperienced with reactor.

Fixed It! Turns out a dependency for it to work properly is the devel files for curl, can be fixed by running:

Code: Select all

sudo yum install libcurl-devel
hopes this helps someone else, it almost made my headless render box DOA
