I am getting cofused about the difference between the opengl 4.3 beta driver and the catalyst 13.8 beta driver.

The openGL 4.3 beta driver solved all my issues in Serious Sam 3.

Linux 13.8 Beta = 13.8 Beta drivers with OpenGL 4.2 files
OpenGL 4.3 Beta = 13.8 Beta drivers with OpenGL 4.3 files

 

The OpenGL 4.3 might not be ideal for users of certain OpenGL programs, so they split the two up until the next release, ensuring that newer drivers for display was available for OpenGL 4.2 users, and that the OpenGL 4.3 compatibility was available for those who want it. Basically the OpenGL is a slightly newer release, since it has 13.8 plus newer OpenGL.

Thank you, now I know this, I realise, I did something not so smart.

It did not cause any problems, so its not a big deal, but I had the 4.3 installed, and then installed the one with openGl 4.2.

I will post this on the steam forums. It might help others too.
