NVIDIA has confirmed a driver bug resulting in a loss of performance on Linux
10 December 2017 at 2:08 am UTC

saildataI had this issue for several months this fall starting with 384.59, and it was fixed for me in 387.22. Currently I'm on 387.34. I tried several times to report it to NVIDIA, but their website had all sorts of issues with me logging in.

I was able to reproduce the issue when the nvidia-uvm module was loaded, which was when anything "cuda" related was done. I like to watch YT or Twitch through MPV and use hardware acceleration to do so, so any time I used mpv I would get another error message in the system log. I dug through the g00gs search results along with various forums and docs to try and find out if there was something wrong with the card or if I should be concerned.

Sorry you have this, but I'm glad that I'm not the only one who ever saw it What driver version are you using?

I am using now nvidia 384.98 version on Manjaro Linux testing branch. Still have this issue with Xid 31, most of times when launching Chromium browser. I hope this will get fixed soon, got tired of killing kwin_x11 and relaunching it...

Great! Also NVIDIA could fix Xid 31 which happens way too often...

Xid 31 is GPU memory page fault (driver, app issue)

To me happens every single day more than few times!

And they could improve nvidia-smi, as of now I see only one GPU details and my system has two GPUs...

The name of the game sounds familiar...

Looks like GOG Galaxy won't come to Linux any time soon, as it's "not a priority"

adomasBTW GOG.com is now selling these "Pinata" things, where you get a random game. I bought 4 Pinatas and guess what: all games are Windows-only. Such a fail. Somehow did not expect that.
I wrote a message to their support asking for a platform dependent selection of pinata games. At first they told me to get a refund but after being persistent they promised me to forward my mail to their development team. Lets see...

That's interesting. I wrote the support and they refunded money to GOG Wallet. I wonder if development team will do something about this. I might buy those Pinatas again if I'm sure I will get Linux games.

Somehow this post made me really sad. I was expecting GOG Galaxy for Linux any time soon (as they wrote).

I also think that GOG Connect is a great decision made by GOG. Today I added +3 games to my GOG account via GOG Connect. Very happy. Also pretty good Summer Sale deals on GOG right now. Just one thing... Would be really cool to get a alpha/beta of GOG Galaxy for Linux. I'm waiting for this pretty long time now and still there is no info about it.

Wow! Now this shows the true power of Vulkan API! Really great! Hope to see even more games ported to Vulkan soon

Steam now has over 3,000 Linux games available
11 February 2017 at 8:16 pm UTC

I was always checking for the Linux game count on Steam here:
https://steamdb.info/linux/
In this page it says there is 2252 Linux games on Steam. In the Steam Store itself when I choose to show only "Games" with "SteamOS + Linux" support I get list of 3154 games

I am really happy more and more great games hit Linux platform. Personally I can't wait for DiRT Rally and Cossacks 3 did not played these games since I made a full switch from Windows 10. Will be really cool to play these two
