• DOOM 2016 - System freeze


    I have installed DOOM with PoL and it is running smoothly with Vulkan on. I mean, 80 fps minimum. It is like a dream come true :D

    However I just noticed that I have a hardware freeze randomly between 5 to 30 minutes. I can’t do anything after and the only output I have is the game sound that continues playing normally. I googled a lot and found no answer yet.

    Any tips?

    [Edit] journalctl

  • Hi,

    When it freezes, reboot and check your log with
    journalctl --since=today

    It looks like a graphics card driver problem, but who knows…

  • @karasu Thanks for your help

    I tried to upload a txt file with the output but seems that I do not have permissions. You want me to cp paste all the text from journalctl --since=today here?

    Noticed this part that seems relevant:

    mar 10 09:36:13 JTBIGARCH kernel: NVRM: Your system is not currently configured to drive a VGA console
    mar 10 09:36:13 JTBIGARCH kernel: NVRM: on the primary VGA device. The NVIDIA Linux graphics driver
    mar 10 09:36:13 JTBIGARCH kernel: NVRM: requires the use of a text-mode VGA console. Use of other console
    mar 10 09:36:13 JTBIGARCH kernel: NVRM: drivers including, but not limited to, vesafb, may result in
    mar 10 09:36:13 JTBIGARCH kernel: NVRM: corruption and stability problems, and is not supported.
  • Hi,

    I don’t really know if it’s related or not.

    Anyways, you can use paste2.org (or any similar service) to upload your log and then put here the link for us to see.


  • @Jonnyteronni said in DOOM 2016 - System freeze:

    Noticed this part that seems relevant:

    This is only a warning, and everybody get this on installed nvidia driver…

  • @joekamprad Ok. I just edited the original post with the journalctl output.

  • Hi,

    You have some errors on that log, but nothing critical.

    Here http://steamcommunity.com/app/379720/discussions/0/152391995402132325/ says that you have to block services.bethesda.net adding it to your /etc/hosts with a loopback ip: (I don’t know if you already did this or if it’s still needed).

    I think you’ll have more luck asking here:
    irc: freenode.net #doom-wine


  • Oh, If you want to get rid of that NVRM error you have to edit
    sudo nano /etc/default/grub

    And change the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line to

    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="video=vesa:off vga=normal quiet"

    and then update your grub menu:

    sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg


  • @karasu Hi
    It says in the end of the steam post : “with latest wine patches everything should work fine.
    you don’t need my workaround anymore, just get the latest wine-staging and enjoy!”

    I’m using 2.3 staging so it should be fixed right? I will try to get some help on the freenode chat aswell.
