@trevorfsmith yes arch based distros worked well with my AMD 5700. I switched to Nvidia recently but stayed with Manjaro and it's been a breeze.
@trevorflowers oof I'm blowing you up this morning. Can I switch my mastodon account to your widerweb.org server?
@trevorfsmith is your DaVinci up to date? Allegedly they fixed "many amd issues" about a month ago. https://www.premiumbeat.com/blog/davinci-resolve-17-graphics-cards-issue/
@trevorfsmith with you. I strongly prefer Linux, and run Manjaro on all of my devices by default. But occasionally I am forced to boot into my windows drive due to some limitations. I always get in, and get out as fast as possible. Not that I hate windows or anything, I just identify with and strongly prefer Linux.
I have had at least 12 people contact me in the last 2 weeks asking if this is me. The worst part is I am not entirely sure that it isn't me.
What we're currently missing:
- Affordable VR headset
- Affordable MR headset (e.g. Lynx)
- @firstname.lastname@example.org OpenXR support for Linux
- XR-focused Linux distros (the components aren't quite ready though)
- Better Proton OpenXR support for Windows apps
- Qualcomm XR2 Linux drivers for DSP
Add another component to a fully open source XR stack!!!
This means in total we'll have
- Headsets (@NorthStarXR@twitter.com)
- OS (Linux) with drivers (@MonadoXR@twitter.com)
- Hand tracking (@email@example.com)
- SLAM (Monado)
- Display server (@firstname.lastname@example.org)
- FBT (@email@example.com's SlimeVR)
- Eye Tracking
We (AngellXR) are currently incubating projects such as the Open Metaverse Interoperability group (OMI). I currently serve as co-chair of OMI, provide guidance and mentorship to metaverse founders and investors, and teach Dataviz and Product at MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art).
I love connecting with other Open Metaverse people. Keep going!
