Almost all games crash

Good evening everyone,

Ever since I installed my new AMD Radeon RX 6700 and formatted my computer a few days later due to a mess I made, I can’t get any game to work on Steam anymore especially the ones that require 3D acceleration, I tried to follow the guide that is in the forum and in fact I installed the drivers but it still skips everything, would you kindly give me a hand?

Thank you all

What do you mean by it “skips everything”?

Also, from a terminal, please run the below command and post the content in this thread.

inxi -FGAxxz

I mean the various games have a start after which, when you have to move the character rather than have to shoot or other such things they all crash

Can you list some of the games please? Also run and post the below command.

pacman -Qqs "steam|vulk|vlk"


[ej@ejs ~]$ pacman -Qqs "steam|vulk|vlk"
[ej@ejs ~]$ 

Hmm. Have you already tried modifying launch options?

Try removing amdvlk and tesitng with only vulkan-radeon.


Install the mesa package, which provides the DRI driver for 3D acceleration.

Support for accelerated video decoding is provided by libva-mesa-driver and lib32-libva-mesa-driver for VA-API and mesa-vdpau and lib32-mesa-vdpau packages for VDPAU."

Undoubtedly we are close because on SWTOR you manage to get as far as the character choice, however, when the latter you choose works up to 80% of the loading is all of a sudden crashes

We were close so I completed by solving by installing xf86-video-vesa

Thank you all for the invaluable help
