Serious Graphical Corruption
Okay, just installed Steam Linux Beta on my 64-bit Sabayon laptop and I'm seeing some serious graphical corruption. First off, relevant info:
  • 1.6ghz Core i7 CPU
  • 8gb DDR3 RAM
  • Radeon HD 4570 with 512mb DDR2 VRAM using open-source XF86 ATI 7.0.0 drivers
  • 10gb free on root, 30+gb free on home
  • Kernel 3.6, 1.12.4, KDE 4.9.3 running with OpenGL Compositing
  • Primary display is 1440x900 laptop LCD, secondary is 24" 1920x1080 LCD

The following things:
  • All Steam window content corrupted when Steam windows not maximised (See here[])
  • Some Steam window content corrupted when Steam windows maximused (See here[])
  • Big screen mode looks really good but takes a while to start working and always renders on the primary display. If moved to the secondary display it does not rescale. (See here[])

I think I have the same problem. My card is a radeon HD 4870 and I am using the xf86-video-ati drivers on a gentoo linux desktop. I believe I have all my openGL stuff set up correctly, as I have all the fancy desktop effects working. When I run steam from the command line, I get a whole ton of messages that say: "radeon: The kernel rejected CS, see dmesg for more information." (the dmesg isn't particularly enlightening to me). If I maximise the windows, things work a lot better and that endless stream of kernel rejection messages seems to stop.

Didn't realise that I could get things semi working by maximising, so I haven't tried out any games yet.

Hmmmmm, I also have yet to try any games. I will probably start playing about in that regard tomorrow....

Alright, so after getting back from Christmas break, I had some packages to update. After doing the update, I don't have the bad graphical stuff that requires the steam window to be maximized to see anything. These are the packages that I suspect made the difference (again, this is a gentoo box):

Perhaps I'll try my luck with TF2 again :)

Hmmmmmmmmmm, Sabayon just pushed an update yesterday so I will try again and see if anything has changed. If not, I'lll check the versions against those you listed...
TF2 indeed runs now (quite a surprise!). Doesn't run great (low framerate), but that's probably a different problem.
OOPMan 31 dec., 2012 @ 9:07 
Hmmmm, main layout is now fixed for me but drop-down menus are still busted :-/
Maybe driver bug? In this case you need to fill it to freedesktop bugtracker.
OOPMan 3 ian., 2013 @ 20:34 
Hmmmmmmmmmmm, I don't see this behaviour in any other applications though...

I still need to play around a bit though and trying running a 32-bit version of Steam via my chroot and various other things...

So, as voodooelectricj did, I started steam from the command-line. Any time graphical corruption occurs the following message is display:

radeon: The kernel rejected CS, see dmesg for more information.

The associated dmesg info is:

[ 2491.179581] radeon 0000:02:00.0: r600_cs_track_validate_cb invalid tiling 6 for 0 (0x08110668) [ 2491.179588] radeon 0000:02:00.0: r600_packet3_check:1913 invalid cmd stream 566 [ 2491.179592] [drm:radeon_cs_ib_chunk] *ERROR* Invalid command stream !

I am going to try my luck on the efnet irc channel for the radeon driver and see if the experts have any clue what the issue is...
I've been getting the same error for a long time on Sabayon as well.
Also running ATi on my desktop and netbook, both have this problem.
NOT a problem on elementary OS running Mesa 9.1 though.
OOPMan 4 ian., 2013 @ 21:32 
The issues seems to be tied to the 32-bit multi-libs provided for 64-bit sabayon (The steam client is still a 32-bit only applicatio).

I have a separate 32-bit sabayon install that I use for chroot work stuff and after installing steam on that I found that things work perfectly.
