TF2 gives black screen
I'm using the open-source drivers with an AMD Mobility Radeon HD 4300 series and when I launch tf2 it gives me the music for the valve opening. However that is all I get. I need to use the catalyst 12.6/8 drivers but I can't get them back for some reason. Any help is appreciated

Same problem here with open source drivers and Radeon HD 6400M.
My first tests seem to indicate that certain vertex shader programs don't compile. I'll try to gather some data, post the data here and hopefully find out what is going on.

It could be that this thread explains the problem:

I ran the glxinfo command on my computer, and this was part of the output:
OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on AMD SUMO
OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 8.0.4
OpenGL shading language version string: 1.20

Interestingly, according to the Mesa website[mesa3d.org], Mesa 8.0 should already have support for GLSL 1.30. But maybe actual support depends on which video card you have.
