  • Anyone running into problems using these drivers with Steam games like Portal 2 can try a fix I found with this script. Just make it and run it and the game should work. You may need to reboot but I'm not sure, but I've tested this script on two machines and Portal 2 now works.

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    DIR=$HOME/.local/share/Steam/
    
    echo "Removing libstd"
    find $DIR -iname "libstd*" -exec rm -rf {} \;
    
    echo "Removing libgcc"
    find $DIR -iname "libgcc*" -exec rm -rf {} \;
    
    echo "All Done"

      I would rename the files instead of deleting them, just in case...

          • latest mesa radeonsi has ARB_gpu_shader_fp64 + ARB_vertex_attrib_64bit support since a day..
            but using latest oibaf build isn't present..
            is due to needed updated llvm libraries?
            can you update your llvm to see if changes?

                • Ubuntu utopic is EOL. I'll remove the packages from the PPA next week. Make sure to purge the PPA before upgrading to vivid.

                  • Tessellation is working in Unigine Heaven 4.0 benchmark! Running "MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=4.0 ./heaven" in the Heaven folder do the trick.

                    So for now the radeonsi driver still didn't advertise OpenGL4, but the functionality is there.

                    I'm using a R9 290, Kernel 4.1.3.

                    But Steam don't want to start with the version override, so I can't test if Metro Redux or Bioshock Infinity are working yet.

                    • It would be worthwhile to mention on your ppa page that the ppa is for 14.04 or 14.04.1 not any of the 14.04 lts versions (14.04.2, 14.04.3, ect.
