    Just tried AMDVLK for the first time now. Was mostly interested in seeing if it was affected by that x.org 1.20 bug that prevents fullscreen Vulkan apps from running in Wayland sessions, but Dark Souls III launched just fine so I guess that's just RADV. Yaay, now I can use DXVK on Wayland

        Does this driver fix issues seen with AMD RX 590?

          Gnome3&Wayland&Xwayland&pulseaudio&networkmanager mess is not good for gaming. To have a simpler, faster, lighter and stable system, use the Xfce desktop, Alsa audio and wicd. Dot not use desktops that are under heavy development if you want to have a stable system. Keep the internet clean of useless bug reports that you can fix by yourself by changing the desktop and distribution.

            debianxfce I've got i3 installed alongside GNOME for those times when I want simple, and I agree GNOME on Wayland isn't quite good for gaming yet although it's gotten a lot better recently with things like HW Presentation Timing being implemented (that patch is already included in mutter on Debian Sid).

            Also, interestingly, it seems DXVK with AMDVLK is running as a native Wayland application. When I run 'xlsclients' the only application I can see is Steam.

              DXVK is not an application, it consist of a set of dlls,

              Code:
              [email protected]:~/Downloads/dxvk-0.94$ cat setup_dxvk.verb
                  file1="dxgi.dll" \
                  file2="d3d11.dll" \
                  file3="d3d10.dll" \
                  file4="d3d10_1.dll" \
                  file5="d3d10core.dll" \

                After spending some time testing AMDVLK with Dark Souls III and NieR: Automata I have concluded that it stutters quite a lot more on Wayland. On x.org things are smooth, similar to RADV but I did get a GPU hang in NieR: Automata after a while so I guess RADV is still more reliable, at least for DXVK/Proton.

                  wine-staging with DXVK supports more games than Proton. The store page of the windows Steam client flickers when win7 ( xp support is dropped) and -no-cef-sandbox is used. Install apps with:
                  wine Steam.exe -applaunch AppID

                  RADV is the only good software that comes from redhat. Thanks to Valve to polishing it.

                    Tried setting ShaderCacheMode,2 in /etc/amd/amdPalSettings.cfg ?
