Additional Comments

Using the alternative patch mention on attachment from the bugzilla makes winecfg not even able to start, or any program with wine.

The first patch named "proof of concept... 1 of 2" doesn't work without glibc compiled with the patch "...2 of 2".

As I'm using gentoo, patching glibc is too risky for my whole system, as it can be involved for compiling other softwares. 

I may still try this last option and post the result in the comments, for experimental purpose, but in all case it can't be a solution to have to recompile glibc 2 times before installing another software without the patch and after it to start LoL with the patch...

Patch 9.10 is not working on wine
by Rostyslav Boiko on Friday June 28th 2019, 9:31
but not, I'm still unable to prepare all needed patches manually. Will someone be so kind to explain how to do this without breaking own system?

Update: seems that it's fixed now:

Update2: seems that it fixed but main patch is for arch and many users from other dist. have no idea how to apply patches to their wine version (incl. me)

Not working with GCC 9.1?
by dolphinling on Saturday May 11th 2019, 11:49
I recently rebuilt wine with GCC 9.1, and the launcher displays only the background (a large blue rectangle) with no content. On rebuilding wine with GCC 8.2, it works again. Is anyone else running into this problem?

Intel graphics
mesa latest git

I will file a bug after a few more tests
