    I today installed latest beta. I was able to solve the flash issue, and the screen tearing.

    The flash issue was solved with checking a box in the system setting ( or is it kde ? )

    Disable desktop effects when an application runs in full screen.

    Enable V sync in amd controll center solved the tearing.

    I do some to have a new problem though.

    After allot of searching and installing about every 32bit mesa lib I could find, steam still complains.

    The output of glxinfo proofs steam right.
    I opened a topic on openSUSE forum about this, hope they can help.

    Code:
    name of display: :0
    libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast
    libGL error: Try again with LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose for more details.
    display: :0  screen: 0
    direct rendering: No (If you want to find out why, try setting LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose)
    server glx vendor string: ATI
    server glx version string: 1.4
    server glx extensions:
        GLX_ARB_multisample, GLX_EXT_import_context, GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap, 
        GLX_EXT_visual_info, GLX_EXT_visual_rating, GLX_OML_swap_method, 
        GLX_SGI_make_current_read, GLX_SGI_swap_control, GLX_SGIS_multisample, 
        GLX_SGIX_fbconfig, GLX_SGIX_pbuffer, GLX_SGIX_visual_select_group
    client glx vendor string: Mesa Project and SGI
    client glx version string: 1.4

      May it be possible that you run 64 bit Linux and have used the option to create a package for your distro in the installer?
      I had a similar problem on Slackware 64 and found that the driver installs 32 bit compatibility libraries only if you install directly, without creating a package.

        I'm still confused:

        Is this really a new Cat 13.3 beta3 binary with new bugfixes (compared to 13.3b3 from mid March?).
        Hard to believe...

          Slackware, the mommy of my distro.

          I tried to build an rpm, but could not find it, so I gave up, and did it directly.

          There is something weird though, I have mesa and mesa 32 bit installed.
          Today also install wine 32bit.

          Still glxinfo says direct rendering is not enabled.

            I do not see any difference. But that does not mean allot.
