OpenGL GLX context is not using direct rendering,
Hello. I have an A-10 APU with the Radeon HD 7660G Ubuntu 12.10 x64 I installed the ATI drivers 13.3 beta (supposedly the best result with the APU) when I run glxinfo |grep "direct render" it says direct rendering: yes but steam games refuse to launch "could not find openGL entry point. I have installed the ia32-libs package. any help would be most appreciated thank you

What says the CCC info page about OpenGL ?
Linux4Life Apr 3, 2013 @ 11:17am 
it says. OpenGL Provider Advanced Micro Devices inc
OpenGL Renderer AMD Radeon HD 7660G
OpenGL Version 4.2.12173 compatibility profile context 12.10.17

Ok, then the driver is at least installed and working correctly.
Did you install those packages?
apt-get install ia32-libs-multiarch i386 lib32gcc1 libc6-i386

(if i386 is not found ignore that)

You likely don't have 32-bit OpenGL support set up (the Steam client is a 32-bit app). Does this support page help?

I read that information and I don't exactly understand what it wants me to do or check

You already have a 64-bit glxinfo. If you install mesa-utils:i386 you should get a second 32-bit glxinfo. That's the one you want to run and see if it says direct rendering.

There's also a second thread here about OpenGL direct rendering that has some suggestions for things to do to correct issues with AMD drivers.
Linux4Life Apr 3, 2013 @ 6:48pm 
ok. but when I install mesa i386 it purges the 64 bit version. how can I get it to have both installed?
drewb🐧 Apr 4, 2013 @ 11:28am 
What is the exact command you're using to install mesa-utils:i386?
Linux4Life Apr 4, 2013 @ 5:25pm 
sudo apt-get install mesa-utils:i386

My recommendation is use the (K)Ubuntu of 32 bits
Linux4Life Apr 4, 2013 @ 6:42pm 
can't I have UEFI =( thanks though

Installing the 32-bit mesa utils shouldn't actually remove your driver, just things like the 64-bit glxinfo. You should be able to try the 32-bit glxinfo and see if you have direct rendering.

Otherwise I'd recommend reading the other thread and trying their AMD driver update steps.
