Two users (one of them myself) have experienced trouble with Tropico 5. "Last patch made it run the menu but starting the new game renders the system unusable and requires a reboot :( Last message in the system log is this: kernel: radeon 0000:01:00.0: ring 0 stalled for more than 10000msec
GPU is Mobility Radeon HD 5730 with mesa 10.2.8 drivers on kernel 3.16.3." (steam fora)
And me: "Tried both Tropico 5 main and linuxbeta, on intel i7 CPU 930 and AMD Radeon HD 5870. Had to work around the black screen issue but, upon reaching the main menu and clicking on New Campaign or Tutorial, the screen would flash and glitch and sound would repeat.
After that, my monitor would turn on and off and display Refresh rate out of range (approx. 43.1 KHz - 41 Hz) and the system would need a cold reboot.
Tried to run it with both the updated kernel and without, realising I had never let it run for more than 30 seconds after the freeze. Result was that the fans inside my computer began spinning like crazy, the system restarted with 4-5 ping sounds and the fans still running full-speed. Only after a cold shutdown did the fans stop.
So I suspect this process almost fried my CPU or GPU."
I am running updated Mesa and Gallium through oibaf ppa.
