I bought an AMD RX570 card to replace my NVIDIA 970. Yes, it works out of the box without additional drivers, however---- Steam does not work. I did a fresh install of everything and steam whirls around and disappears. I went to KsysGuard and ended process. Apparently, there is something that steam needs that MESA or Xorg does not supply. I tried to install the AMD Pro drivers according to the AMD website, but I am doing something wrong. First, can I install AMD drivers anymore? Second, how? THird, ist there a problem with Steam and certain video drivers? Thanks for all your help. I learn something new every day from you all!!!;););)

Nope, the packager abandoned the effort as the fglrx drivers couldn’t be
made to work during the beta, and apparently AMD wasn’t any help in
resolving the issues.
I upgraded to 42.2 last weekend, and the OSS AMD drivers are working fine

I have steam working here fine on GNOME with the amdgpu driver (sure your not using radeon?) on Mullins R4/R5.
/sbin/lspci -nnk |grep VGA -A3
My card doesn’t support the amdgpu-pro driver
Things I learned that might be helpful to others. This is also a game thread post.
This is not a driver issue as much it is a library issue. Once I tried these two approaches, things worked out fine. Thanks for all your help, maybe this will help someone else.
Steam ships with its own versions of somelibraries (the “Steam Runtime”) in an attempt to emulatethe Ubuntu 12.04 environment in later versions of Ubuntu.
However, some core libraries included in theSteam Runtime will often conflict with the newer versions of otherlibraries…
You can work around this by deleting the SteamRuntime versions of these libraries, forcing Steam to fall back tothe up-to-date system versions:
find ~/.steam/root/ ( -name “libgcc_s.so*”-o -name “libstdc++.so*” -o -name “libxcb.so*” )-print -delete
If that doesn’t work, try again and then runthis:
find ~/.local/share/Steam/ ( -name"libgcc_s.so*" -o -name “libstdc++.so*” -o -name"libxcb.so*" ) -print -delete
