    I thought you were joking but had to try with --simulate and it does actually propose to install a vast multitude of packages. I hope OP has a lot of disk space!

    There are a lot of games only a mother could love though. :mrgreen:

Often, aged components cannot provide normal operation. If your computer is very hot, this can also be the cause of incorrect operation. You can take a look at case fan review 1 tech/gaming and see a solution to this question.


    This seems more like AI advertising spam than what a real human would reply.

    ^ Yes, indeed, thanks Steve. Banned, split & consigned to the mod area.

    If you wouldn't mind editing your post to remove the spam link that would be fantastic, thanks again.

    Quoted for truth.

    For the discerning gamer:
    Code: Select all
    # apt install games-finest

    And there's also:
    Code: Select all
    # apt install games-tasks
    # tasksel

    To select various games tasks.
