    I have the same problem ! Since the update about 2 days ago, I get the Steam error and can't run Steam games. If I purge PPA, everything works fine...now I see the mesa was updated in the PPA, but my apt-get upgrade doesn't provide any updates

    • Ubuntu 14.04: Steam says no direct rendering

      Similar to the two posters above, on Ubuntu 14.04, steam is saying there is no direct rendering. Here is the relevant part of steam's output:
      Code:
      libGL: screen 0 does not appear to be DRI3 capable

      Please let me know if I can provide any other helpful information.

      • I didn't change anything packaging side in the last days, so it should be a mesa issue. Please open a bug on freedesktop.

        • The problem seems to extend over to Chromium/Firefox as well as Steam. The about:gpu shows the following. It seems to effect more then just Steam. Can anyone confirm?

          Code:

          Firefox's about:support shows a similar problem.

              • I have the same problem as the other posters on OpenSUSE + Pontostroy repository, so we can rule out a packaging problem.
                I also use Nouveau, so this is not only related to Radeon.

                Code:
                ~ LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose glxinfo

                Error: OpenGL GLX context is not using direct rendering, which may cause performance problems.
                But I can start a game and it does seems to be using hardware acceleration.
                Probably the most annoying thing is that I also get a blinking/flickering cursor :<

                Sorry for posting here while not using your PPA, I just wanted to confirm that it's not packaging/radeon related.

                  For firefox you need to manually enable MOTC for OpenGl composting since version 28 even if the driver is working

                  • Guys with the GCC error, that is Steam's fault.

                    Steam is shipping an older version of a lib than your Mesa was compiled against, and forcing it to be loaded. This obviously breaks.

                    Solution: remove Steam's version of that lib, use your system's version.

                      Can you explain how to do that?
