Vulkan core dump when running Steam / Borderlands 2

Hello everyone.

I can launch Borderlands 2, but after a few moment it crashes, freezing the whole system and I have to reboot. Sometimes it happens quickly (during launch screens), sometimes I can play a few minutes. I didn't play for a few months, so I'm not sure which upgrade is causing this.

The core dump it produces always looks like this:

           PID: 15475 (vulkandriverque)
           UID: 1000 (alk)
           GID: 100 (users)

My graphic card is quite old:

$ lspci | grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Pitcairn PRO [Radeon HD 7850 / R7 265 / R9 270 1024SP]

X configuration:

$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-radeon.conf  
Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Radeon"
        Driver "radeon"
        Option "AccelMethod" "glamor"
        Option "DRI" "3"
        Option "TearFree" "on"
        Option "ColorTiling" "on"
        Option "ColorTiling2D" "on"

I am not sure what I could do to make this work again. Does any one have the same issue? Should I upgrade my hardware?

Re: Vulkan core dump when running Steam / Borderlands 2

Use Lutris to install borderlands 2 (windows).

Under system requirements (SteamOS+Linux):

NOTICE: Intel Integrated video chipsets and ATI chipsets are currently unsupported for Borderlands 2 Linux.
