nVidia's proprietary drivers have always been pretty good so long as you're not using a bleeding edge kernel (but even that has improved.)

What issues have you had with it? I haven't had issues with radv for quite a while. For me, it has been very stable.
Mostly a corner case, but for yuzu, it lacks some critical extensions like VK_KHR_16bit_storage and VK_KHR_8bit_storage.

I’ve thought of going back to Mint. I’ve gotten quite used to using Darktable for my photo needs. What would be the best way to go about OpenCL implementation? I previously had trouble getting it going, and I killed X once trying to upgrade GPU drivers for my RX 570.

Well considering the drivers are open source now really, you don't "update" the drivers so much as just update your kernel.

Pretty hard to forget that. If you're installing a "driver" you are probably doing something wrong, nowadays.

Yes, for the tech minded amongst us: I am aware there are other components. But my point was no binary driver download to kill your install.

Last I tried, the AMDGPU-pro drivers were needed to get OpenCL working, which is very beneficial in Darktable. I'm not sure if it's technically a driver, but AMD had updated this, so I followed their instructions to uninstall and then install the updated version. This is when it fell apart. If OpenCL was available from the start, I would have left the default drivers in place.

In case of doubt, always check the arch wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GPGPU#AMD/ATI
You have several options, including the open ROCm, which is compatible with Polaris/GCN4. That one should be the best one.

Anything bad about me just having choosen the mesa stack for OpenCL on Gentoo?

Bear in mind, my only use case for OpenCL is for a limited wine-based gaming role: Wine+Elite Dangerous aparently depends on OpenCL or something for Horizons support. I believe it's being used to compute a terrain shader or something.

Not much, but the mesa one is really lacking in stability for what i tested. If it works, just leave it.

Lol, haven't found out yet. I'll keep ROCm in mind as a fallback for when it doesn't work.

If it can do just this one thing, couldn't care less really.

Next update, guess who's using ROCm due to graphics glitches like voxels jutting into space on planets?

So wine-tkg...

How did this stay hidden from me for so long? It's like, my thing now. I will use this. Even if it sucks. Because it's for frogs...

Well, do almost all my gaming under linux now... running Kubuntu 20.04, which by the way stays up to date on nvidia drivers. Newest nvidia drivers auto installed with control panel ect. I only reboot to win 8.1 from time to time to fly Flying Circus, but I expect I'll get it to run under linux soon with the way wine is progressing.

I am a full-time Linux user and gamer. With Steam and Lutris, you can play most titles with little to no configuration needed. I even use PlayOnLinux to play certain titles.

I am curious to know if anyone considers themselves more than just a light gamer and also a full time linux user. I can't seem to make the full time jump because too many games that I *might* play rely on .NET. I know Steam is pushing their new wrapper but still...
My hubby and soon to be me switching full time to Linux. Sick of windows.

I am not sure about it, but maybe Mono is an alternative to Microsoft .NET and is cross-platform so you can install it in Linux. R-T-B and everyone, could this help Easy Rhino?

Mono is basically a dead project right now, and it's winforms support (what you want for .net) is meh. It's not very helpful really for anything greater than a .net 2.0 app, maybe.

You can install .net 4.5 in wine with mixed results. It's hacky and weird but it usually works.

It's technically still alive, but the progress is abysmal since MS aquired Xamarin and monetary resources kinda dried up. Sad, yes.

I've been gaming on a linux install this past month on my second machine with good results.

I don't have time for a full Gentoo setup like I wish I did, so it's just Kubuntu for now. It's been working well now, and my friends have stopped playing Vermintide 2, so EAC is no longer a blocker for me...

Arguably better than Gentoo.

No, not performance wise if you put the time in. Nothing beats compiling from source to the target hardware. But it takes so damn long.
