OpenGL GLX context is not using direct rendering, which may cause performance problems.
Whenever I start up steam, I get this error:
"OpenGL GLX context is not using direct rendering, which may cause performance problems.
For more information visit https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=9938-EYZB-7457."
OS: Ubuntu 12.04.3 (LTS) 64-bit
Video card: Radeon HD 6850
I've installed the Linux graphics driver from the AMD website
I went to the link provided in the error message. I ran the 32-bit glxinfo and I get this:
name of display: :0
libGL: screen 0 does not appear to be DRI2 capable
libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/dri/tls/swrast_dri.so
libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/dri/swrast_dri.so
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast
display: :0 screen: 0
direct rendering: No (If you want to find out why, try setting LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose)
I'm guessing that "direct redendering: No" is one of the problems. I'm a noob so I'm not sure what to do. Any help? Thanks.
