But I'm having trouble getting crysis2 to run in its benchmark mode (missing dlls) and in any case doing it this way you can't interact with the program at all, so I can't click the first messagebox that asks me if it's OK to keep running with my graphics card. So if you're using bumblebee and wine, are you able to try running a demo to see if it still crashes?
First, could you give me a link to that discussion?
Second, How would that rule out bumblebee/vgl? Nomatter how I start a server on :8, if I run the program on :8 then it is bumb/vgl that takes care of it, no?
And running demos won't work for me. There are probably only some specific graphical elements that gets generated that crashes my computer. I have been running a lot of stuff on the nvidia card, just to see if I can get the same effects (benchmarks, desktops, native linux games), only some games with wine crash like this.
I tried the MSI thing you mentioned, I also got some more time out of it. But the crash was harder, syslog could only record: "Aug 20 21:10:07 localhost kernel: NVRM: Xid (0000:" then the computer locked to syslog couldn't do anything more.
