    Nvidia actually cached compiled shaders for ages, Mesa still doesn't have this functionality mainlined IIRC (there have been many posts on this subreddit).
    Basically, now they have both multithreaded compilation (faster first time compile for things like start of deus ex: man kind divided - it took like several minutes on clean cache before, it was instant on subsequent game starts). I think I will delete my cache and reset DE:MKD just to see if it takes shorter time to come up on clean cache.

    Edit: it seems that MKD doesn't take advantage of it, it remains single threaded. I guess there was no point in using it before when only nvidia drivers were supported and they didn't have it at the time.

    it's saying that compositing couldn't load/start

    perhaps it's due to running a hardened toolchain and a kernel which was compiled by a hardened toolchain, don't know

    At least it shouldn't make a difference since with 370.28 it works fine
    Perhaps its time to check logs and backtraces, you are running linux after all.

    A new extension means it is currently used by nothing. It may be used in the future by stuff that should be using Vulkan.

    At simple seek this drivers works normally with wine 2.0 rc5



    However more tests are needed

    also settings of kwin_x11 crash immediately upon attempted launch

    /sigh

    this has been going on since 375.20 !

    Thank the lord. That's been driving me nuts.

    a month ago? NVIDIA had it for a year. Wine-staging had it before nvidia though.

    Just installed the beta driver. I had to package egl-wayland and eglexternalplatform first.
    Nothing exploded so far.
