I installed on openSUSE 12.2 64 bit, through steam, the game Serious Sam 3.
The problem, the in game vids and the sound stutter when a vid starts, and when the camera view changes.
(same hardware under windows, no problem)
Amd phenom II X4 @3.2 ghz, 4 gig of ram, HD5750 ( 1 gig of ram)
So I went to the steam forums, were one of the developers of Croteam, helps you with problems.

***Hm, seems either something is wrong with the lspci command, or the hardware is not recognized correctly. If you just this:
lspci -nn | less
it should dump a ton of text for you to scroll through. You should be able to find something about your GPU there. The first issue here is that for some reason the game doesn’t find your GPU in that output so it cannot adjust the graphics accordingly. Please let us know if you can find it.***
I then found out two things.
I need sudo for lspci, and it needs the full path.
***Then, there is something wrong with the files in /sys/ folder For example, the game runs this command:
grep ‘’ /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_*
(that after grep is two single quotes)
This is supposed to print contents of those files, which are supposed to be text files with current config settings for performance options of the CPU. However, for some reason grep seems to think those files are binary on your system. This is either a problem with grep, or something seriously strange on the system.
And finally, the fact that lspci requires sudo for you sounds like something is wrong there. It is problematic for programs trying to auto-configure themselves (like games) depending on hardware.
I assume he is right, can some one confirm this?
Is there for me a way to solve this?
