So I recently did an in-place upgrade F37>F38. I had been learning WINE (staging) and it was working fine. However, today I noticed some strange behavior in wine. Using a clean prefix, when I check “Emulate a virtual desktop” in winecfg and apply it, winecfg doesn’t start anymore. Here is the error it gives:
008c:fixme:hid:handle_IRP_MN_QUERY_ID Unhandled type 00000005 002c:err:system:update_display_cache Failed to read display config. 0148:err:winediag:nodrv_CreateWindow Application tried to create a window, but no driver could be loaded. 0148:err:winediag:nodrv_CreateWindow L"The explorer process failed to start."
Graphics: Device-1: Intel 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics driver: i915 v: kernel Device-2: Foxconn / Hon Hai USB2.0 Camera driver: uvcvideo type: USB Display: wayland server: X.Org v: 22.1.9 with: Xwayland v: 22.1.9 compositor: gnome-shell v: 44.2 driver: dri: crocus gpu: i915 resolution: 1366x768~60Hz API: OpenGL v: 4.2 Mesa 23.1.3 renderer: Mesa Intel HD Graphics 4000 (IVB GT2)
I have no Idea how to troubleshoot graphics drivers but I think something might have changed between f37 and f38. Also my gpu is pretty old and perhaps the current driver broke compatibility.
