unable to load driver_houdini.so

Hi,

I want to try arnold to see if it suits our production needs, but when I try to render it seems not to find "driver_houdini.so" , altough it is in the arnold plugin directory. Can someone tell me how to fix this?
I'm on centos8.

It looks like libHoudiniUT.so is missing.

libHoudiniUT.so: cannot open shared object file 

driver_houdini.so depends on libHoudiniUT.so

Can yhou check or post your Houdini environment? eg Help > About Houdini > Show Details

Hi, it's an old topic but we have the same problem here. I have joined the Houdini env details txt.

Thank in advance for the help 🙂

I recommend you always start a new thread. Posting on a two-year thread doesn't have the same visibility.
