Unsupported version of OpenGL

Post by campozoide » Thu Apr 19, 2018 9:32 pm

Good evenning guys.

I'm new here and new at linux also. I always used Win7 and played some games at Steam. When I tried to play Dying Light appeared a error message saying :

"Unsupported version of OpenGL!
Detected OpenGL version: 3.0 Mesa 17.2.8
Required OpenGL version: 3.3
Please update your display driver."

I've been unable to update my OpenGL or my gpu driver. This is my gpu:

Graphics: Card: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD/ATI] Tahiti PRO [Radeon HD 7950/8950 OEM / R9 280]
bus-ID: 01:00.0
Display Server: X.Org 1.18.4 drivers: ati,radeon (unloaded: fbdev,vesa)
Resolution: 1920x1080@60.00hz
GLX Renderer: AMD TAHITI (DRM 2.50.0 / 4.13.0-38-generic, LLVM 5.0.0)
GLX Version: 3.0 Mesa 17.2.8 Direct Rendering: Yes

I've been trying to solve this problem for a week. Then I decided to ask you guys. If some one know a solution it'd be great.

Thanks Guys.

I dare say that might be the problem. Perhaps you could try installing the proprietary driver. I can't tell you more because I steer clear of AMD video cards.

I admit that it was not a good purchase. :( Even in my windows days i've noticed that, it's not even a good AMD card :( :(
