Still Trash

Install Arch with archinstall, don’t care I have installed Arch the real way many times. Read online that Wayland is ok with Nvidia now. Cool, go with Desktop/Hyperland. Doesn’t get past the lockscreen. Search around and attempt to fix for a few hours. Can’t do it. Reinstall and select Desktop/i3 and it just works. In b4 its Nvidias fault. Maybe keep backwards compatibility with X11 clowns? Will just continue to buy 110 dpi monitors and avoid Wayland as fractional scaling is the only new shit it actually does that matters.

    it is nvidia's fault. above all, its your fault for being a digusting corporate bootlicker to nvidia instead of using amd or intel who are far less evil on linux than fricking nvidia you fricking jackass. just go back to windows you foul mouth sack of shit.

      Meehhhh one big corpo is better than others because their driver works with a thing no one actually needed or wanted! God forbid Wayland make concessions to Nvidia that makes cards (better) that more than half their addressable market uses.

      You are repeating propaganda that you have heard from wayland devs and you dont know the real cause of the issue. The issue lies in waylands reliance on implicit sync. Implicit sync was outdated before wayland was even created but wayland still choose to go that route, maybe because amd and intel only has support for implicit sync. Nvidia uses explicit sync, which also matches how vulkan and android works. Every display server on every OS uses explicit sync now, except wayland. Explicit sync is clearly the future. Nvidia has actually provided patches in xwayland, wayland protocol, etc to add explicit sync support (1-3 years ago) but wayland devs haven't merged this yet and wayland compositors haven't implemented that new protocol.
      So the work has been done from nvidias side, it now lies on wayland devs to do their part to be future proof.

        Wayland devs decided to keep implicit sync in part out of sheer lazyness and in part because a few redhat homosexuals got huge chubs at the idea that they would be able to force nvidia to rewrite their driver just for linux.

        AMD has been blocking explicit sync from the kernel for years because they had to fix all the shitty hacks in their garbage linux driver stack first

        the only thing this would fix is xwayland applications flickering on nvidia
        nothing else would be fixed, wayland would still break and perform like shit on nvidia

          Nah once linux supports explicit synce nvidas divers will be essentially drop in with maybe some minimal code they will bang out in a few weeks. They were right to not waste a second of their time supporting explicit sync

            explicit sync isn't as big of a deal as you think it is
            the nvidia driver can already do it for native wayland applications, their opengl driver does it implicitly like AMD (opengl is always implicit sync) and vulkan always uses explicit sync, the only problem is when you throw xwayland into the mix

            Yes that's why people have spent the last fifteen years arguing about it before begrudgingly admitting that its time and beginning the long process of actually supporting it that they should have started 15 years ago.

            yes, because for amd and intel it only affects edge cases like keeping the compositor smooth under 100% gpu load, it doesn't even increase performance because their kernel drivers efficiently support implicit sync
            it's beneficial but again, not a big deal and not the reason why nvidia is so shit on linux

            depends on your definition of "working fine" i guess
            do they still peg the cpu at 100% if you enable vsync?

            The fact that my 6700XT is up there with 3080 is really nice to see.

            Nvidiots can't code for shit.

            that has never been the case. Also nvidia performs better than amd even on linux. Your cherry picked >1080p example doesn't prove otherwise. I say that as somebody that owns an amd gpu now.

            I looked up the phoronix article and hlaf the tests are spec prerf2020 shit that's not supported by nvida gaming skus. But that's par for the course with phoronix benchmarks, Miachael knows who pays his bills (AMD fanboys)

            Maybe Nvidia should support them? If it works on their competitors cards it looks really bad to see Nvidia charging much more money for something that performs worse.

            Maybe AMD should support CUDA? If it works on their competitors cards it looks really bad. I mean they could have CUDA support tomorrow if they wanted to.

            Yes, because of course Nvidia is going to license their proprietary CUDA cores to AMD.

            And I'm sure they're going to charge a generous price for it and aren't going to shaft them at every opportunity.

            api/interface compatibility is legal, even if you have to reverse engineer a proprietary component

            Transpilers already exist but machine translation will never be as good.

    It would be nice if Nvidia played ball. Shit would be fixed quicker and Nvidia drivers wouldn't be as much of a hassle.
