As you can see in the pics, I have successfully installed Rocky Linux 8.5 on a clean SSD, and yet both Flame installer and DKU installer both say I don’t have a recent enough operating system. What gives? I downloaded the Linux ISO, DKU files, and obviously Flame installer straight from Autodesk’s slow ass website, so I know they are the correct file versions.
Somewhat off topic: Interestingly, you have a RX 5700 xt as your GPU-- I thought Autodesk forces you to use an nvidia GPU under linux?
Yeah you’re gonna need Nvidia.
They do? Eek.
That’s the issue? This is why they won’t let me install it?
Yes. Or, tiny chance that you are installing an older version of flame that doesn’t support Rocky? What version of flame are you trying to install?
The latest one, 2023.
Why am I having such a hard time finding help with this? I can’t find anyone having the same issue on older forums–this one or the Autodesk forum. I also can’t seem to install the DKU files either. When I drag the install file on the terminal, I get the same error.
Maybe I should try CentOS?
Visit Flame System Requirements for information about supported Graphic Cards. As stated above, Flame family products on CentOS/Rocky Linux only support NVIDIA cards.
You’re having a difficult time finding help with this is because you aren’t reading what 2 people above us have stated is an issue…AMD graphics cards and Linux Flame are incompatiible.
And dude. Be nice. I don’t want to have to ban you again. I’m losing count. Twice on Facebook, twice on these forums? I can’t remember.
