What the what is happening here

my new monitor is dying?

Obviously not a monitor issue if you can take a screenshot of it and post it on the forum.


Good to know I guess. Any good ideas?

Steam person Vulkan dxvk are running on eso on Linux. I switched over to vanilla arch. It looks fine there so must be a recent update?

Time for some downgrades it looks like

Hold your horses!
What game?

Have you tried removing the ati driver? It doesn’t seem like both amdgpu and ati should be loaded.

Keep in mind, I am not a graphics driver expert so I could be wrong.

Well, i would assume it’s AMD driver / mesa problem, but not sure…
However i’d suggest to try and set different versions of Proton in Steam for this game, that may help

on vanilla arch i hadn’t upgraded in a while it ran properly so it must be an update that occured since then?

I have the RX 590 graphics card and both amdgpu and ati show up in the output for xorg as shown.

Just so glad it’s not the monitor as I sold both TVs to cover the cost and I don’t have a spare output

I see you are using the liquorix kernel? Is that popular on gaming platforms?

Seems so

Downgraded everything Vulkan that was installed and rebooted. Not fixed. Same for everything Mesa. About to see if it’s fixed

Something is not reporting correctly. But at a glance that is a really high idle CPU temp.

For some use cases. Most of the time zen fares better.

You were using the same kernel on vanilla arch as endeavouros when you tested?

So I downgraded all Vulkan named stuffs and all Mesa named stuffs and all lib32 named stuffs for Vulkan and Mesa and rebooted. And the problem persists only on my archish and not vanilla arch

Also steam is on its own partition so it is the same steam install across all arches

So it was proton? Switched steam play from experimental to 6.3.3 or whatever that is and it seems good
