    Phoronix: Civilization VI On Linux With RadeonSI Should Be Fine With Newer Mesa

    When Aspyr Media announced yesterday that Civilization VI is shipping for Linux this week it was confirmed that only NVIDIA graphics are supported by this latest AAA Linux game release. But they later clarified that AMD "works", but with issues. But it doesn't sound too bad...

    Wouldn't that require them to also release some minimal test application that demonstrates the bug(s) in action when running on mesa? Since the mesa guys would need a way to know that any proposed patches actually work before commiting to git, and the game was only just released. Never-the-less, the game is released now so if there are any bugs or graphical glitches remaining the reports will likely enter the bug tracker soon.

    Yes, but it's responsibility of developers to do it before the release. If users do it for them, it shows they don't do enough QA and testing.

    People use Ubuntu LTS, mainly because non-LTS Ubuntu is barely usable, one is lucky if it boots to desktop, and then manages to run for more than a minute without crashing (might be slightly exaggerated...).

    Regarding Mesa bug reports: Users can only describe the symptoms, and how to reproduce the bug. Developers have full access to the source that causes issues, and can even edit it in order to help debugging the driver, so they are in a much better position to help find, and fix bugs.

    They should have a free weekend play with this game on release for Linux, that really would help allot of people out.

    In reality, Mesa is released every 3 months (if they're following the schedule) and Ubuntu doesn't upgrade an important package like Mesa too close to release. By the time the following release happens, the version in the 'latest' Ubuntu release can be as much as 9-12 months old.
