Catalyst 13.2 beta 7 Serious Sam 3 openSUSE

Because of a problem with Serious Sam 3, I posted on the steam forums.

The developers of Croteam send me here.


In Serious sam3, I have some textures flicker.

The grass and the leafs on trees, flicker very fast when I move, when I stand still all is fine.


Croteam told me this is an old bug, and they are waiting for AMD to fix this.


I build ths pc all amd to support amd, to support in their opensource efforts.

Can you tell when this is gonna be fixed ?

I do not want to rant, but it took over a year before I could use the catalyst on openSUSE with my hd5750.

Firefox was lagging bad with the catalyst driver.

That is at least fixed now, but now I have this issue.

If this continues I never buy and amd graphics card again.

How long is the hd5750 now on the market ?

Please give us a good working Linux driver.


Before steam on Linux, maybe you guys had no reason to do so, but I would like to think this has changed.

I did see allot of improvement with teamfortress 2


From what I understand from games, its a problem with textures with an alpha mask ( semi transparent textures)
