  1. #1

    Default Steam - OpenGl GLX context is not using direct rendering, which may cause performance problems

    CPU: i7-5775C
    RAM: 16 GB
    Graphic: Sapphire R9 290
    Driver:radeon-crimson-15.12-15.302-151217a-297685e.zip
    HDD: Seagate 1 TB
    MB: MSI Z97M-G43


    I get following message when starting steam:
    OpenGl GLX context is not using direct rendering, which may cause performance problems
    For more info.. visit https://support.steampowered.com/kb_...9938-EYZB-7457
    ----------
    OpenGL not using direct rendering

    What do I do if OpenGL is not using direct rendering?


    ----------
    There is no glxinfo as mentioned on this website.

    Has anybody an idea how to solve this problem?
    I just installed suse 42.1, installed the graphics driver and then steam.
    Now, when i reboot the PC it hangs,no KDE is started, but I can switch to the console and login as root.

    What a pitty, I'd like to avoid windows as often as possible, also for playing ( as far as possible ):

    Thx in advance

    Why did you install this:
    Driver:radeon-crimson-15.12-15.302-151217a-297685e.zip
    Is that a Skylake Processor?

    PS:
    We are here in the German Subsection and can talk on German.

    Sorry, ich dachte ich wäre im englischen forum.

    Ne, das ist kein skylake sondern ein broadwell (1150, Z97) und der Treiber ist für die Grafikkarte.

    Das Problem scheint mir eher in der OpenGL implementierung für den Grafiktreiber zu sein. Allerdings weiss ich da zu wenig.
    Ich hoffe, dass ein anderer AMD Kartenuser das gleiche bzw. zumindest ein ähnliches Problem mit dem Grafiktreiber und Steam hat und möglicherweise auch schon eine Lösung.

    Danke für Deine Nachfrage.
    Ich werde auch mal bei AMD nachfragen.

    Da stellt sich mir die Frage:
    Warum selber kompilieren und nicht der Treiber aus dem Repo?
    https://de.opensuse.org/SDB:AMD/ATI-Grafiktreiber

    Oder mit dem Script von Sebastian Siebert?
