Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Mobile Hybrid Graphics

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Mobile Hybrid Graphics:

I recently opened another post with more specific problem description, but didn’t get helpful answers, so I am trying again not so specific.

Does anyone here uses a Hybrid Graphics Setup with a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 mobile and bumblebee/bbswitch? I have big problems with bbswitch, sometimes the complete system freezes when the dGPU is turned off. Can anyone confirm they have the same issue or is it a configuration problem of mine?

Why should we support steam?

Why should we support steam?:

Other than the obvious fact that its the biggest platform, it may end up harming the community by normalizing DRM on Linux. Thoughts?

I personally think that Steam is already harmful to Linux, in their eyes it is a backup plan and thats not okay to view an entire ecosystem of software like that. Although they do push for more Linux adoption so that mindset may change soon. Also, Steam is almost a monopoly compared to other stores on Linux. Humble and GoG are the only two competitors against Steam afaik, and Humble doesnt have a lot of Steam independent games. So i think that their has to be more suitable competition against Steam so we can have a better experience as a whole.

Now dont get me wrong, i love what Steam and Valve are doing in terms of vouching for the little guy and contributing resources to us. But i think that it the dog we are raising may end up biting us.

Please be civil, arguments are okay, fights are not.

POE on Lutris freezing my entire PC

POE on Lutris freezing my entire PC:

I tried to install Path of Exile DXVK via Lutris today and everything apparently succeeded. When starting the game though my computer just completely freezes up at some point making me do a hard reset, not even ACPI shutdown is detected anymore. Because of this it is also really hard to get any logs or information about the error. Did anyone encounter similar issues or has any idea on how i would even start troubleshooting / fixing this. I’m also not too keen on trying it a lot of times as I dont think those hard freezes and resets are particularly great for the fs and os in general.

I am on Arch Linux running Nvidia 410.57, installed PoE from this – DXVK version 0.92

Considering a non-Intel non-Nvidia build, would appreciate manufacturer opinions:

I’m planning out my next computer build, and I’ve chosen to go as pure AMD as possible. Ryzen, Radeon, whole nine yards. I’m glad they’re either catching up or have caught up to the aforementioned brands, but I am having a hard time picking a manufacturer.

See, I’m a huge fan of EVGA. Motherboards, graphics cards, power supplies, the lot. However, they don’t make anything AMD that I can find. What are your opinions on say, MSi, Gigabyte, or other large manufacturer? Why do you like them so much?

Thanks for your insight!

Can someone ELI5 what a lot of the “windows games on Linux” programs are and what exactly they do?:

I have a hard time keeping straight what a lot of these things are and do, and I figure I can’t be the only one, so I figure it would be a good post if someone could give a brief overview of these things, the differences between and how they interact (and more if you think of others):

– Wine

– Vulkan

– DXVK

– Proton

– Lutris

How can I find out what Lutris would do for a given game? What’s the best way to replicate that?:

I don’t know why, but I really dislike magical solutions one-click solutions that I do not understand. I’m aware that that’s true for 99.99% of the technology I use, but I do enjoy figuring out how something works.

So, I’ve got a specific but undetermined game and want to know what steps Lutris would take or what settings/fixes it would apply.

How do I find that out? I obviously browsed through their repo, wasn’t very successful though. Not even a little bit.
