RE: Steam: Possible Linux Client in the future?

Few months back, I posted a blog post concerning Steam and Linux.

Now with the Closed Steam for Mac beta underway, people have noticed that in the same script that launches Steam in OSX has Linux entries.

This implies Valve is porting Steam to Linux.

To make things more interesting, there's references to linux steam client files on steampowered.com

Steam: Possible Linux Client in the future?

With Valve Software announcing that Steam and their games based on the Source engine are coming to Mac OSX, I started wondering if they will throw us Linux nerds a bone?

For one thing, a lot of the leg work would have already been done. As in, porting the games Graphics interface from DirectX to OpenGL.

And it seems that there's quite a few (but still small number of) people on the official Steampowered Users Forums who would love to see a Linux version of Steam and...

Configuring GRUB2?

Posted 12-08-2009 at 12:59 AM by Seph64 (Seph64's Lair)

I tried following the grub2 article at the gentoo wiki with no success on this issue.

it says to:

*anger* Xorg 1.6 is driving me crazy. *FIXED*

Ok, so I just reinstalled Gentoo on my main machine, and I installed Xorg too (with the appropriate input drivers installed too).

Only I can't get it to work.

Blank screen
No input of any kind
No way of getting out of it without a hard reboot

It's almost as if the Xorg devs expect people to stay with the CLI after the installation of Xorg-fail-server version "Goonandscrewyourself".6

Linux: Me and the lack of interest.

Posted 11-16-2009 at 07:22 AM by Seph64 (Seph64's Lair)

I wouldn't say I have gotten bored of Linux, but I haven't had interest in using it for the past few months.

Either due to the fact that I am too lazy to find a Linux disc to reinstall GRUB to the MBR, or the fact that my games are keeping me tied to Windows.

Maybe I need a PC to exclusively use for Linux? I got an old PC that I use for a file server whenever I decide to turn it on. Maybe I should just backup the files on that machine on to an external hard drive, and...
