with all catalyst drivers since at least archlinux-package catalyst-test-14.3-1 the game Planet Explorers will lead to a GPU freeze of my Radeon HD7870 after some minutes. The current catalyst-test-14.6-11 has the problem too.
The sound still plays, I can ssh to my machine and kill the game, Xserver etc. but I can not get the display back. The last visible image before the freeze will stay visible until I reboot my system.
The dmesg-log says something about: [fglrx] ASIC hang happened.
A more detailed description can be found here: http://board.pathea.net/mantisbt/view.php?id=392
I uploaded a dmesg log there too: http://board.pathea.net/mantisbt/file_download.php?file_id=270&type=bug
There also seems to be another one with the problem. The other reporter tested the problem with the stable 14-4 too but the error still occurs after a short time in-game.
The Planet Explorer developer think that it has to be a GPU driver problem...
So I hope that someone here can say what to do now.
It seems that this: http://forums.amd.com/game/messageview.cfm?catid=488&threadid=172851 is the other user of the pathea-bug-tracker.
In addition to his post I can say that it appears for steam and non-steam and with or without steam-overlay. Fullscreen/Window mode is not important. OpenCL with CPU or GPU also does not matter. Setting maximum or minimum graphics settings does not change anything.
Yes, I know - this seems to be a dead forum. But where can I post my problem? Whom can I tell? Is there somewhere an AMD bugtracker or anything? I did not find it, but maybe I overlooked it?
