I installed steam when I was using the radeon driver and the steam client works ok. So I installed the catalyst driver and when I try run steam the screen turns black and the system go to gdm (not even running in the terminal to see what the error is) . I try run urban terror and the same error occurs.
I need help with tearing on the open source radeon driver. I have finally switched on my AMD GPU after upgrading to Ubuntu 13.10 (which uses Linux 3.11) and setting radeon.dpm=1, but I have tearing when I run Steam games that I couldn't fix after spending hours Googling for a solution.
Running Steam on arch 64-bitSTEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automaticallyMy output for trying to run steam; nothing happens if i try to run steam.I am using the proprietary nvidia driver (lib32 is also installed), so obviously it is not just a graphic driver issue.There was an update for steam yesterday i think, so probably thats the problem, because before steam was running like a charme.
I currently run Statler on my laptop, but now I'm looking to install Crunchbang on my desktop. I was wondering whether I should install Statler or the latest beta on my desktop. If I install Statler, how easy will updating to Waldorf be in the future? I've never done an upgrade beyond just updating packages before. Will the move to Waldorf be simple as that?
Hey no worries I got the ati driver working using the manuall method in the post you mentioned earlier. Let me know if you see anything wrong using the manual method.... anyway thanks man I appreciate it. Now on to conquer steam which I think is going to be a bigger problem.
