Wine cripples system while applications start?

Post by TheForgottenKing » Wed Jul 28, 2021 10:16 pm

I've had an issue recently where wine causes my entire system to lag horribly when starting any application or switching screens. Any programs take minutes to start and while this is happening my mouse and keyboard inputs lag terribly, often taking seconds to input if at all. Even running winecfg causes this to happen. I have tried reinstalling wine, using another user account, and deleting my wine prefix.

I am using the proprietary Nvidia drivers, as my system does not work with Nouveau. Running version 6.13, Arch Linux. This used to not be an issue even with the proprietary Nvidia driver.

Here's an example output from terminal.

Code: Select all

0064:err:winediag:is_broken_driver Broken NVIDIA RandR detected, falling back to RandR 1.0. Please consider using the Nouveau driver instead.
0064:fixme:xrandr:xrandr10_get_current_mode Non-primary adapters are unsupported.

What graphics card do you have? And what is the version number of the driver?

Nvidia Quadro FX 2800M, version 340.108 (legacy drivers).

I don't think it's a graphics issue, because once the program loads it works fine until any menus are loaded.

Is there any news regarding that matter? I have the exact same problem.

Manjaro, wine-6.16, Kernel 5.10.68-1, nVidia 470.63.01, GPU: RTX 2080 Ti.

Two of my other systems, with (supposed to be) same software configuration but different GPUs (Laptop:Mobile GTX 880, Workstation:Quaddro RTX 4000) do not show any problems.

I almost forgot to mention: Whenever this happens for me, my xorg-server rises to 100% CPU on a single core. Since xorg seems to only utilized one core, this might be the main reason for crippling the desktop experience.
I yet have to figure out, why this happens. This is very hard to debug. wine itself (even with WINEDEBUG=+all) shows no abnormalities. Neither does xorg (yet). journalctl and kernellog are "quiet". I probably should somehow get Xorg more verbose. Lets see how far I get.

Btw: Valve's Proton does not show any problems.
