RPMFusion Catalyst - Steam now crashes X on launch

Question asked by wieschie on Jul 18, 2013

I'm running the latest version of Fedora 19.  I previously had steam installed, but none of my games could launch because my OpenGL version was 3.2.  So, I decided to install the kmod-catalyst packages from RPMFusion.  The install went fine, and I had OpenGL 4.2!  But now just trying to launch steam crashes X and logs me out.  I'm using the unoffical steam repo for fedora (http://spot.fedorapeople.org/steam/steam.repo), and have tried reinstalling it.  Any idea what's going on?

 

Some system information (let me know if there are other logs / information that would be helpful).

 

$uname -r

3.9.9-302.fc19.x86_64

 

$fglrxinfo

display: :1  screen: 0

OpenGL vendor string: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.

OpenGL renderer string: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5400 Series

OpenGL version string: 4.2.12337 Compatibility Profile Context 13.101

 

 

EDIT: I did a bit more detective work and came up with this by running steam through bash and redirecting output to a log:

 

Couldn't find dpkg, please update steamdeps for your distribution.
