My vote goes to Staging. More bugs are fixed with Staging, and it has additional features and performance improvements.
Did dropping Staging really fix this? I've used Staging in other distros (using it now in Fedora 25) and have never seen this happen outside of Solus.

Is the decision to move to regular Wine final for now? I mainly play two games with Wine (Guild Wars 2 and Path of Exile), and both require CSMT to play ideally. GW2 loses FPS without it (about 10-20 FPS depending on the scenario), and PoE becomes a flickering mess without it unless I disable the in-game multithreading (which also lowers FPS a bit).

I'd like to see both too, but even just Staging was alright for my main usage.
Nov 15 2016
Although on a different note, will Staging be provided as a separate package? CSMT is kind of nice for some games/setups.
Nov 14 2016
Hmm, Wine still reports it's staging to me and I have a CSMT option under a Staging tab in winecfg.
There's a game called K-Shoot Mania and it doesn't render at all under Wine Staging. Interestingly enough, it renders and plays (mostly) under regular Wine.
Could this be related to "BD PROCHOT"? From what I've heard, it seems that is the cause of unnecessary throttling in some computers.

I did a clean install of Solus and vsftpd a bit ago and pam_service_name="login" doesn't seem to work. However, pam_service_name=login does (no quotes around login), so it seems vsftpd is a little strict on that.

I've had this happen on my Acer laptop if I used snd_hda_intel.model=dell-headset-multi (without that kernel option, the headphones plugged in work after reboots without hotplug).
Does the Kindle show up as a MTP device? I believe I've had something similar happen with my Nexus 5 (MTP) once or twice, but didn't really think anything of it and rebooted.
As I understand, upstream Wine won't take Gallium Nine patches since they only benefit Linux. I'm not sure if Staging will take it, but I assume they either follow the same reason, or have their own reasoning if they didn't take it already.

Wine also does this for the text editor and image viewer.

I've noticed more throttling as of lately on my i7-6700HQ; I assumed it to be dust or something but now that I think about it, I've only noticed this happening more often as of lately.
Thanks; here's what I ended up putting into /etc/fstab:
I installed hplip, re-added my printer, and it printed the test page fine.
Can also confirm this on two UEFI machines (swap partition exists; isn't used).
Oct 22 2016
Can also confirm this with an OfficeJet Pro 8710 connected over network. I didn't install anything special; I just selected the printer after it was detected in Printer Settings.

Nevermind; looks like xorg-driver-input-evdev was needed for it to work along with the kernel module. Pen movement and clicks works fine now!
Looks good; both Neverball and Xonotic work fine while fullscreened now :)
Hmm, so I got the update, the kernel module exists now, but my tablet still doesn't seem to work (pen doesn't cause any clicks or cursor movement). Here's Xorg.0.log's output: http://pastebin.com/E0KSJed5
Looks like it didn't make it for 4.8.3 :/

Any word about this? My H420 tablet still doesn't work on Solus 1.2.1 (at least from the live environment).

Any word on this? It would seem anyone with Pascal is just out of luck currently :/
Sep 29 2016
Hmm, so it looks like the module that supports this tablet is named hid-uclogic.ko, and it doesn't exist in /lib/modules/4.7.5/kernel/drivers/hid on Solus.
Thanks, I didn't really think to check if they had tarballs since it was just a one-file script.

So I was finally able to track down the reasoning for this issue and embarrassingly it was my fault :p
Sep 26 2016
In my case, I have a HTPC that's used for games, media (Kodi), and serving files to other machines (in this case, other set-top boxes for Kodi and just general backup/restore). Having vsftpd on this computer means one less machine using network resources for playing back media. I would like to run Solus on it for consistency (all my other computers will also be running it), and I like that it would receive rolling updates.
I enabled the unstable repo and it does look like the issue is fixed there (winepulse.drv exists in 32-bit winecfg, 32-bit game plays back audio).
Hmm, by the last update, you mean something that was released after Sept 18th? I ended up switching to another distro temporarily until this could be resolved, but I had daily updates going on Solus up until that point.
Sep 24 2016
Yes. There doesn't appear to be an audio device presented to 32-bit apps. A quick way to test is to install 32-bit wine, create a 32-bit prefix, run winecfg and go to the Audio tab. No audio device is presented and Test Sound doesn't work.

Does it happen in other distros? For distros with some kind of Live environment, you could quickly test by booting into it and typing systemctl suspend. Arch, Ubuntu, Fedora, and openSUSE could be tested with this.
Any word on this? Any other information I could provide? This is currently preventing me from installing Solus on two computers :(

Hmm, I use NVIDIA primarily, but my platform is Optimus. I haven't noticed the lagging window movement, but I'm not certain if that's because of Optimus just behaving differently or what.
Hmm, so interestingly enough, both issues have gone away (I no longer see the error messages about libgnutls nor txc_dxtn). I've done a few reinstalls and I'm not entirely certain if I had the tls library installed when I tried WoW, but I can confirm its installed now.
Sep 18 2016
Here's a quick guide I wrote up for how I handled Optimus on my laptop: https://solus-project.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=11&p=10618#p10618

I too would like to see adb and fastboot tools included. I sometimes mess with custom ROMs on my Nexus 5; I need fastboot to unlock/relock the phone and adb to install apks.
