RV-2021.0.0 Unable to launch on Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS

Hi all! I was wondering if there is a list of supported Linux distributions to install RV in?

I am having trouble launching RV on Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS, because it needs a dependency which is not compatible with the linux version:

/home/gabita/Downloads/rv-centos7-x86-64-2021.0.0/bin/rv.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libgcrypt.so.11: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

The libgcrypt11 package is not available for Ubuntu 20 (see here) and installing libgcrypt20 does not solve the problem.

Does this mean that I have to use Ubuntu 18?

Hi Gabriela,

We strongly suggest to use CentOS7 on Linux. Everything should work without any blocking dependency issue on that OS.


Another note @benteveo, with the latest announcements about CentOS, we are investigating what our next step will be for supported Linux versions. We’ll be sure to update Release Notes as a decision is made on this.



(We’re currently evaluating PopOS (Ubuntu) 20.04)
