What works

Riot client logging, and launching of the home window of the game.

What does not

In the home window of the game, we can't start a game (upper left button "play" in gray and not working), as a small popup saying "error code 9S".
The "complete repair" function of the game doesn't change anything.

There's some tricks shared on a reddit page, that seems to work for some people but not for all.

Temporary fix for the s9 error
by risingfr on Saturday July 11th 2020, 10:23
We have to temporary change the latency of the network device, to made the Riot client working completely :

Add 500 milliseconds of delay :

Find your enp name with ifconfig command.

Then execute this in a terminal :
sudo tc qdisc add dev ‘your enp’ root netem delay 500ms

Start the Riot launcher. When it’s loaded, the “Play” button should be blue (working).

Remove the latency delay :
sudo tc qdisc del dev eth0 root

Then launch a game.

League is crashing at game start with wine 5.7. It works fine with wine 5.6. I've filed . I'll work on bisecting.

This is now fixed, and it's possible to run with wine 5.9 by using the patch in Bug 49025 [ ]. However, a new problem prevents it from working with wine 5.10. This is filed as Bug 49373 [ ].
