Tried to run SteamWorld Dig2 from GoG. It just died with this:

ERROR: ShowErrorMessage: Failed to initialized OpenGL extensions (GLEW), error: Unknown error

This is from my understanding a fixed bug in GLEW on Wayland but requires an update of that lib – which is probably not gonna happen any more.

Fun enough we can work around this by starting it with SDL_VIDEODRIVER=X11 ./Dig2 under Wayland, with from my understanding invokes|provokes XWayland and brings us back to Wayland. And since I want to play this on my couch with my Steam Link I added the game to my library and set it’s start parameters to SDL_VIDEODRIVER=X11 %command% – Et voila…

Coffee detox day 4. First morning I felt somewhat awake again. Didn’t last long. Only 4 or 5 more days to go 🤨 I hate this but it is the time again.

I started to like cold rainy days and wonder why. Think I just found the answer: no gorram joy riders on their noisy motorcycles passing by the house each minute. How sad. Their joy is my strife. Fck noise.

I really wasn’t sure when I started dabbling in back in 2016 but I’m glad I did. Articles like https://www.electrive.net/2022/05/10/renault-99-prozent-aller-zoe-akkus-noch-einsatzfaehig/ confirm that the choice I made with the is a good one. Ours is doing great. Sold the smaller one tho. There was simply no need for it any more. We drive way less nowadays.

Hm… Diaspora: Shattered Armistice ( ) didn’t want to start any more. Found only this in the launcher:

The executable did not generate a flag file

Turned out my install was missing some 32bit lib:

ldd /home/beko/.local/share/lutris/runners/wine/lutris-ge-6.16-1-x86_64/lib/wine/i386-unix/openal32.dll.so
linux-gate.so.1 (0xf7eca000)
libopenal.so.1 => not found
libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0xf7c8f000)
/lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xf7ecc000)

A dnf install wine-openal.i686 fixed this for me.

Yes, I know there is a native Linux PC version but it’s a pain in the neck to compile 🤷
