Davinci Resolve Lite 8.2.1 Database Problems
on May 20, 2012 at 4:50:29 pm

Hello, I just installed Davinci Resolve Lite 8.2.1 on my mid 2011 iMac running Lion OSX 10.7.3. I am getting a no database error when I go to open reolve though and I cannot create a database. I have tried all the terminal commands and unistall and reinstall suggested by the other forums and I still am not able to create database and use resolve. PLEASE HELP ME I have been trying to fix this problem for weeks.

Hi Krishan,

I believe you have an incomplete and/or corrupt Postgres database
installation. When you install Resolve, it installs the Postgres
app, and automatically creates a database with the admin and user

Since you have no user login icons, something failed with the Postgres
install. That's why you can't make a new database

The usual fix for this is to rename the /Library/PostgreSQL folder and
reinstall Resolve. Hopefully Postgres will then install properly. So,
Finder, rename /Library/PostgreSQL to /Library/PostgreSQL_bad, the
the Resolve app, and login and hopefully you will have a guest and
admin user login icon.

If this does not work, let us know. There is a more extensive Postgres
removal process we may have to go through to get it working.

DaVinci Resolve did work in OS X 10.5 and 10.6, but it is not working in 10.7.

I have OS X 10.7.4, and I get the no database error when I start DaVinci Resolve. I have uninstalled both DaVinci and the PostgreSQL database, and reinstalled them, and that has not helped. I renamed the PostgreSQL database folder and reinstalled, still a no go on the database.

Originally, it would not even start the database manually, but after a permissions repair I can get it to start by going into the applications/PostgreSQL 8.4 folder and either the Restart Server, or the Start Server application will get the server running. Once the server is running, I do see the proper accounts most of the time, but not always.

Looking for the next steps.
