- Tools for crashes (hopefully at least one compares to WinDbg)
LD_DEBUG=filescan be used as a sort of FileMon
cat cmdline environ mapskind of make up for ProcExp

making the page more beginner-friendly
I'm thinking about making this page more 'gamer-centric'. A lot of space is given for general Linux fixes and knowledge that is not essential for gamers and requires better understanding of Linux than should be expected from someone casually using the OS. I suppose a few years ago, when it was being written, this stuff was important, but right now I feel like it's cluttering the page. Also, some things are simply outdated.
If noone has any objections, I'm going to make a major refactor to include new Steam Proton stuff and remove a lot of non-essential info to make the page more beginner-friendly.
This is a good site that creates installation scripts that optimize DRM-free games for distribution through package managers, including updating outdated dependancies and configuring DOSBox, ScummVM, or WINE when necessary.
Note that some fixes are somewhat Debian/Ubuntu-specific
The "graphics drivers" fix is written as if it's generic to all of Linux, but uses Debian/Ubuntu-specific details (APT, policy of only including FOSS software) with no notice. For example, while Jockey exists on Arch, the package is just named
jockey, and you need to semi-manually compile it from source (although you shouldn't need it on Arch, since Arch generally has a policy of being less strict on the FOSS-only front, as well as being more up-to-date).
The part about running games in a new X server should be in the linux section of every linux game
Most of the issues people have with games is because of a window manager.
