    Phoronix: Wine-Staging 4.4 Down To 770 Patch Delta, Addresses Six Year Old Bug About Silverlight

    Re-based off Friday's release of Wine 4.4, Wine-Staging 4.4 is now available though the delta compared to upstream is now many patches lighter thanks to some of the work being upstreamed...

    Fortunately there's wine-tkg, which let's you easily enable faudio for staging.

      Enabling faudio for staging is a use flag in gentoo... but staging requiring ffmpeg 4 instead of 3 is harder to deal with.

        It feels weird that FAudio is disabled in staging but not in wine mainline!

          I've been running with ffmpeg 4 for a while on Gentoo, the patches I needed are in the FireBurn overlay

            That CPU proc status was so that Silverlight could acquire load details for throttling downloads or other system intensive activities.

            Because MSFT marketed it as a Flash replacement most people think that is all it was. There were other functions inside of it that many people never heard about.

              How odd that the patches you needed were in an overlay with your name on it.

              If anyone is curious, faudio from the AUR builds and installs just fine on Manjaro...

              I've been using the tk-glitch version of Wine and it's pretty awesome. It's what Lutris uses as the base for its Wine builds and it is setup to be damn easy to customize.
