libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast

OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5400 Series 
OpenGL version string: 1.4 (2.1 (4.2.12002 Compatibility Profile Context 9.012))

System information:

  • ubuntu 12.10 (quantal) of 64-bit
  • Linux 3.5.0-25-generic
  • micro: AMD Phenom(tm) II N830 Triple-Core Processor × 3
  • ram: 3,9 GiB

I think it is a problem with OpenGL. I can't play steam or EDGE.

Please provide a little more info. Where does this output even come from? –  Attila O. Mar 1 '13 at 4:06
What driver do you currently have installed? AMD open source or proprietary (fglrx)? What works, and what doesn't? Are you using a laptop with PowerXpress? –  jmite Mar 1 '13 at 6:04
