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:

I uploaded a dmesg log there too:

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: 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?

Do you have any gigabyte hardware involved?

With a gigabyte brand motherboard and gigagabyte AMD card, I ha similar problems. Only fixed by buying another brand of motherboard and video card.
