[Suggestion] Make the CPU Vendor section writable in PC Info

As of right now, the only option is to select *blank from the drop down for anything other than Intel/AMD x86.

I'm curious, what's missing you need?

I am curious too. Some of us game on a raspberry pi ? And old VIA or Cyrix processor ? I heard a lot of people use emulators on raspberry pis.

Edit: for the curious: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_x86_manufacturers :)

I was hoping to enter IBM as the vendor. Being that the vast majority of games are built for x86, I totally understand if the answer is "no". At the very least, an "Other" category perhaps.

VIA would be a good add too. Their most recent Isaiah chips are plenty fast enough to handle many games.

I'm not against expanding it, but are you seriously using a non Intel/AMD processor for your main Linux gaming unit?

GustyGhost 10 Nov, 2019

Yes, since a few weeks ago. I have been exclusively playing source-available games for at least a year so using other architectures is non issue on my gaming computer.
