Need a couple of brave testers please!

If you're on the unstable repo, using the 352.xx driver (nvidia-glx-driver package), please install the Steam package and run it from a terminal, and let us known where/if it fails. You'll also need nvidia-glx-driver-32bit

We're working towards getting a mesa-32bit package together, but this will help us greatly if you can test now..

Code: Select all

sudo eopkg up

Code: Select all

sudo eopkg it steam nvidia-glx-driver-32bit

Figured lots of folks dont visit G+ and would see it here.
I know you put a lot of work into this. Nice job.. :P

Gotta admit I have NEVER played any of these games and probably wont use it much myself, but wanted to help with testing..
(Now watch me get addicted to gaming..).. :lol:

Appreciated I assure you! Also this is why I insisted on keeping Steam integration to the very last minute, because productivity will just completely drop :P

Update!

Users of nvidia-304 are now also supported:

Code: Select all

sudo eopkg it steam nvidia-304-glx-driver-32bit
For users of the open source drivers, just install Steam itself, it drags in mesalib-32bit.

For us FOSS driver users, you might see a steamui.so issue when starting Steam right now, so to workaround:

Code: Select all

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libX11.so.6.3.0 steam
We're going to address this through updates to provide all of the necessary libraries for Steam, and then disable its
runtime by default

Other drivers coming soon..

I'm on AMD FOSS drivers and steam is not working even with the workaround. Without it, it just gives the steamui.so error and with the workaround this is the output in the terminal:
ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib32/libX11.so.6.3.0' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32): ignored.
Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(1450127196)
libGL error: unable to load driver: radeonsi_dri.so
libGL error: driver pointer missing
libGL error: failed to load driver: radeonsi
libGL error: unable to load driver: swrast_dri.so
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast
and then it's just stuck there doing nothing.

Heya, please make sure you have the *latest* updates installed, for libelf. If the issue continues just reinstall libelf.
We had this issue yesterday on Josh's machine but got it fixed :)

No luck. Installed all updates, tried reinstalling libelf (and steam) several times and tried on both gnome shell and budgie but still got the same error.
