MacBook Pro Resolve Lite 9 Database fix request

Hi BMD,

Could I get the more detailed info on repairing the database postgres install? I tried the rename postgres file and reinstall work around on version 8 with no luck and so far have the same result with 9.

I am using a 2009 MacBook Pro 2.53 Intel Core 2 Duo with 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3. NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB

Mac OSX 10.7.4

Thanks,

Dave

Hi Dave,

Contacting us directly at davincihelp (at) blackmagicdesign (dot) com would facilitate this.

Do you have an existing database with stuff in it you care about?

If you are using V9, you can also use the new Disk Project based database, and not mess with PostgreSQL at all. Setting this up is detailed in the new V9 beta 3 Resolve manual, starting on page 609.

Thanks Dwaine for the advice and the direct email. I dont have an existing database for my MacBook so I will give the new Disk Project a go.

ps This beats troubleshooting an internal TLC in '03 or an aging 2K in '07 I'd say.

Hi Dave,

I was just noticing what you said your system specs were. I didn't pay much attention earlier, as they were not relevant to PostgreSQL issues. If you ONLY have a 9400M GPU, I don't think Resolve will run on that. You need at least a mid-2009 MBP that has both a 9400M and a 9600M GPU in it. If your MBP does not have the 9600M, it's almost certainly not going to run Resolve.
