    Hope that those network changes fixes solve a 3/4 years old bug where disconnecting and reconnecting NetworkManager forces you to restart Steam. Example: https://github.com/ValveSoftware/csgo-osx-linux/issues/1518.
    From this comment by Paul Fenwick on a similar bug I've been watching, it sounds like it should.

      *more like a compatibility or translation layer, like Wine is

      Zink supports OpenGL 3.0 already, as far as I know.

        It's also running at half the speed of native GL.

                Thanks for this. I was a bit lazy to download the beta and test it. 2012 bug, damn.

                  Hard Reset Redux over DXVK (Vulkan) on Linux runs smoother than on Windows on "native" OpenGL where I often experience stuttering.

                    But crashing games when they launched from XFS partition they don't fix yet.
                    Which games are giving you this issue? I haven't experienced this issue (I'm also using XFS) but I play just a couple old games which maybe aren't affected

                      This issue reproduced on XFS partitions over 2TB
