    Open source Radeon driver breaks Steam overlay for me.

    On my machine (AMD A8-3500M/Radeon 6620G) using the r600 Gallium3D driver as shipped in Ubuntu 14.04 (SO, Mesa 10.1 + kernel 3.13) causes the Steam Overlay to simply not run.

    It gives me errors about gameoverlayrenderer.so not being the right ELF class and Shift+TAB just starts cycling backwards through the game menu. Games themselves all run on r600g, and surprisingly well at that, I just can't use the overlay.

    Using Catalyst results in the overlay working like it should, although my machine then becomes a little less stable. I tried using the updated Mesa/DRM from oibaf's PPA, but it didn't help. Tried using the latest beta of the Steam client, also no change. Tried purging and reinstalling Steam, also no change.

    might be good to report this on launchpad so developers know about the issue and can fix it by the time when 14.04 is released..

    also Ubuntu +1 i believe is the place for 14.04 threads. 14.04 was not released yet.
