@gamingonlinux for those who don't read. They mean in full, full 32 bit support removed including multi arch
@oct2pus @gamingonlinux IIRC isn't Steam and its games built on layers and layers of 32 bit? I know Steam has its runtime but this sounds like it's making more problems than it's solving
@cadence @gamingonlinux so i do think developers are viewing ubuntu 19.10 wrong, in the sense that 19.10 is an ubuntu testbed for features. the same reason that 17.10 had the wayland session enabled by default; but then disabled it in 18.04 LTS because they decided it wasn't ready to be the default.

It does break real user workloads, ubuntu's proposal is naturally...snaps. use snaps to isolate 32 bit libraries and applications. they have zero system in place and while there are apparently talks with Steam developers they apparently aren't going very well. They also don't really answer the problem of all the DRM free games on gog and humble bundle that are built and then forgotten.
@riking @cadence @gamingonlinux i mean, they're more flexible than flatpaks in what they're built for, but frankly their answer is the equivalent of suggest we dockerize a Debian container with steam and games installed, and then forward the x server to our host system.
@oct2pus @riking [quote: dockerize a Debian container with steam and games installed, and then forward the x server to our host system.]

so what you're saying is

👏👏👏 stadia 👏👏👏

@oct2pus @cadence self hosted nvlink, also known as steam link,

@oct2pus @cadence @gamingonlinux
wonder how well loading 32bit exe files in your home directory in wine running inside a snap will work
