Which means, buying hardware that advertises fwupd/LVFS support and not giving money to companies that literally don't care about Linux users.

    Notably, most of the same vendors that don't care about LVFS-provided updates are also the same ones with a terrible firmware security track record, so make your choices accordingly. We can't legally ship updates without the vendor uploading them to us and giving us permission to distribute. Buy stuff listed here: <> and you'll be helping a lot."

    And that shows that everything is available?

    it does not and my point stand.

    About the giving money to companies that dont support Linux, we know very well that many here love to ignore that and others dont have an option. Perfect example is that cable i linked, i have no choice if i want to connect my PC to my TV AND wanting 120hz support.

      despite all the necessary libraries and headers being present on my system (I checked the file).

      This is just a nitpick, because I use prebuilt Proton for most stuff and my system WINE install is kind of a fallback, which can also use XWayland for all I care.
      in my case show same error, maybe because xfce on xubuntu 24.04 dont support wayland however i have wayland development libraries but wayland for my case is a

      this wine version as talked before give a huge update for 32bit games and this affect stability

      normally wine shows suddenly crashes in various 32bit games but with VK_EXT_map_memory_placed, this problem has been resolved in various games in my case​

      avatar (movie based) the videogame

      in before tests this game show suddenly crashes and sometimes freezes in blue lagoon, normally dont be possible explore all blue lagoon at begins because show suddenly crashes in any moment

      but now with lastest mesa and wine-git (now 9.4) dont show any crash in around 4 hours of gameplay
