Lutris Runtime issues

Hi there @,

This is just a message to inform you that on my machine (details below) the Lutris Runtime was causing hard lock-ups and no logs at all, while every now and then IO errors, D-BUS errors, AMDGPU errors were popping up inconsistently. This started happening around mid January, while playing Warframe. Since then I tested numerous software/hardware combinations, until I toggled the runtime off - various kernels, mesa versions, distros, vulkan versions, ICD loaders, switching around cables, RAM, re-deliding my CPU, reverting all overclocks, reverting to older UEFI, etc.

I’ve used Lutris pretty much exclusively for the past 2-3 years and this is the first time I’ve had issues with the runtime.

What leads you to believe it’s the Lutris runtime that is the cause of your problems?

Extensive testing, as noted above.

That’s a report more of what the problem is than a report on what is causing it. The runtime itself does not have this effect on 3 computers in my house, and many thousands of other users, which means there is something you have or are doing that is the culprit.

  1. Runtime ON - since ~mid Jan hard locks MY machine. Not an issue before that.
  2. Runtime OFF - not a single problem for more than a week on MY machine.

Can’t be bothered with this any more - obviously a very niche problem can not exist, unless it happens to a specific user in a random support thread. I stopped reporting anything in public years ago, exactly because of such attitudes. Sorry to waste your time.

Have a great day.
