This is the last thing stopping me from ditching windows completely, so I’d really appreciate any help I can get.
I launch my game with
mangohud %command% in the launch options and everything is great for 15-30 minutes, but then steam will crash silently in the background and I’ll get some “disconnected from the network” message ingame before the game itself freezes shortly after.
I’m really not sure what to make of it. I’m leaning a little towards user error as it seems to be a very popular tool that just works for everyone, but I also just tried a clean install of endeavor os today and it’s still a problem. I did install my usual stuff before testing so I cant be 100% sure, but it wasn’t anything that I can imagine would conflict somehow. Web browser, discord, mpv, obs, terminal themes, cloud storage, and cryptomator already covers most of it.
I managed to find a few posts on various forums about what seems to be the same problem, but I had to dig pretty deep to find them and none of them found any solution other than “dont use mangohud”. They all seem rare enough that it seems likely that all of us with this problem managed to mess it up somehow, rather than it actually being a problem with mangohud. I saw a couple github issues about it, but they all seem dead.
I’ve asked about this elsewhere before and someone had me get some output from steam with
steam &> $HOME/steam-output.txt, but that’s as far as I’ve ever gotten. I’m still relatively new to linux and am not an expert on providing logs, so I’ll just add the first two from the systemlogs guide here and call it good. Actually, that
journalctl one is giving me a
413 Request Entity Too Large in html instead of my link, so I’ll need assistance with that too if it’s relevant.
I’ve tried my best to troubleshoot, but I’ve failed to really find anything worth mentioning. The only noteworthy thing I managed to do was to test older versions, compiling 0.6.4 and 0.5.1 from the github. Neither of these made any difference.
Doesn’t look like I’m allowed to upload that steam-output.txt either, so let me know what I should do with that.
The steam output is on pastebin now:
The clbin link above also seems to be dead? Here’s the hardware info on pastebin too:
