    • Yup, bug has been resolved with 10.3~git1406100730.7a4527~gd~t.

      • I added llvm 3.4.2 to the 14.04 PPA, OpenGL 3.3 should be supported on more radeon cards now.

        • I use a 7870 (Pitcairn) with Xubuntu 14.04 and still stuck with GL3.1.

          Is it just not yet supported on my HW even with LLVM 3.4.2? Or can I somehow get it to run 3.3?

          Code:
          glxinfo |grep OpenGL
          OpenGL vendor string: X.Org
          OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on AMD PITCAIRN
          OpenGL core profile version string: 3.1 (Core Profile) Mesa 10.3.0-devel
          OpenGL core profile shading language version string: 1.40
          OpenGL core profile context flags: (none)
          OpenGL core profile extensions:
          OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 10.3.0-devel
          OpenGL shading language version string: 1.30
          OpenGL context flags: (none)

            You didn't properly install the driver from the PPA. You should see something like (git-xxxxx trusty-oibaf-ppa) in the OpenGL vendor string.

            • Fount it! Was an xorg-edger ppa what wasn't removed cleanly.

              I shall feast in OpenGL features now!

                Thanks, much appreciated. Works for me.

                  Woot, thanks! This one makes RadeonSI to support GL 3.3. Though when it comes to heavy 3D loads or OpenCL, it still full of bugs. But there is nothing more you can do about it I guess.

                    How did you find out? And how did you remove it cleanly? I have the same problem (glxinfo says I only have opengl 3.0 and no "oibaf" in the vendor line) and think a former xorg-edgers ppa could also be the cause. I already made a ppa-purge with xorg-edgers and oibaf, reinstalled oibaf ppa... but things still go wrong.

                    For example I can't start steam with the oibaf ppa anymore. The system hardlocks instantly when I try to do this. Unigine valley also doesn't start anymore - not even overriding the opengl-version doesn't help here.

                    • I've tried to use the PPA a few times these days but encountered a few issues with the current version of Mesa 10.3 (ATI RadeonHD 7770 GPU):
                      - in XCOM Enemy Unknown a few days ago, random and complete system freeze (whith the game still running, with choppy sound and computer completely unresponsive − had to make a hard reset)
                      - in Civilization V today, the game crashed randomly (might have been linked with the fact that Steam displayed a message for a trading card, as the crash happened just after)
                      And a few problems of graphic garbage on the desktop and Steam interface, in specific zones. Also, the Firefox window completely trashed when opening a terminal window on Unity.

                      It looks like the driver is quite unusable currently. Have people encountered similar bugs in games recently (the XCOM one was pretty naughty)?
