get back to 14.04 – hwez Jul 3 '14 at 21:21
folks say there is a performance hit in latest foss amd driver. and there are people working this out somehow. – c.k. Jul 3 '14 at 21:27
Hi! First its not related to "development" state of Ubu. Secondly its conflicting library versions (steam runtime vs LOADED library for gfx driver). Since that is quite serious stuff, one could make exception for this question. Correct Answer for it is not obvious but there is simple workaround. (Renaming offending library from steam runtime!) – przemo_li Oct 16 '14 at 17:29
Check out: If you're running 14.04, just run the 5 rm commands. On 14.10 the folder structure changed from ~/.local/share/Steam/ to ~/.steam, just change the folder structure and use the same commands. – dietrmat Oct 19 '14 at 10:12

Don't listen to steam. Make sure you have direct rendering by checking glxinfo | grep "direct rendering". If that says No, you have a problem then.

it says yes. but the error poppes out everytime i launch steam. when i try to start a game from the library another opengl error comes out. – c.k. Jul 3 '14 at 21:29
Try and restart steam. If the error persists, it's probably because steam checks for vendor and renderer string. – dekomote Jul 3 '14 at 21:31
restarting didnt help. i added the second error message. – c.k. Jul 3 '14 at 21:34
Now do glxinfo | grep OpenGL and paste the output. – dekomote Jul 3 '14 at 21:40
Everything seems in order here. If you can launch games, you will have to deal with the errors somehow. If not, try to install the 32bit mesa and dri – dekomote Jul 3 '14 at 21:45
