Can't launch games through Lutris since update

Hi, I recently got Lutris installed, and have been playing AC3. There was a recent update and now the games no longer launch (Lutris installed games or Steam). I have listed the log below.

Would appreciate any help.

I’m not sure what those errors mean - I’m sure someone else will though - However, I reccomend rolling back to an older kernel eg LTS kernel. Which can be done through the arch kernel package manager in the EOS welcome screen.

On both my gaming systems I use older/LTS kernels (MX Linux and Solus) and I haven’t seen any performance issues as a result of doing this.

ETA: Actually I’ve just re-read your log, am I right in assuming you have installed feral gamemode and set it to auto launch games in the lutris dashboard? If so maybe try disabling it/turning it off.

ETTA: Also make sure you’ve updated both Wine and Lutris as well, if you haven’t already. Though if you have already perhaps the issue is with Wine/Lutris not being compatible with the newest kernel…


From what I understand, it’s Nvidia spaghetti. @Janinah is right that it calls to Feral Gamemode, please try to enable/disable that and launch Uplay.

As far as I know Feral Gamemode doesn’t come with Lutris on Arch, you can try to grab it from AUR if you don’t have it installed at all.

Well yeah all above analysis should be correct, it looks like Feral gamemode broken after update:

  1. Try to update system again just in case, maybe there are already some fixes:

    sudo pacman -Syu
  2. Try to disable Feral Gamemode, if it works without it - just wait for next update and turn it off, although if i remember correctly you really needed it…
