It's probably because you didn't compile nvidia-driver with COMPAT32="yes" (if you used the SlackBuilds).

If you did, then listing the files in the nvidia-driver package (look in /var/log) will show that it put files in /usr/lib, and not just in /usr/lib64.

We now have X3: Reunion

There are some bugs that are known about but the one thing that annoys me is the sound doesn't work for me and it doesn't seem to have any error messages.

Ok, i have installed now from slackbuilds. Now I got this error:

bash-4.2$ steam
/home/diegoj/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 286: /home/diegoj/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam: No such file or directory
/home/diegoj/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 286: /home/diegoj/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam: No such file or directory

the file and folder is there

diegoj: looks like your multilib setup is broken, the file not found message is the message you get when you try and run a 32bit program without the 32bit base libraries installed.

When Alien Bob recovers from his flu, I'm looking forward to seeing an updated Steam package. The version he has available isn't auto-updating for me anymore.

So I upgraded to the latest version by simply changing the version in his SlackBuild to today's date. When I did, I noticed that it now comes with a Python application called "/usr/bin/steamdeps". Opening it shows the following header comment:

Code:
"""
	This script handles installing system dependencies for games using the
	Steam runtime.  It is intended to be customized by other distributions
	to "do the right thing"

	Usage: steamdeps dependencies.txt
"""
I'd lean towards just printing the list of dependencies to the console, which is sort of what Gentoo does with it.

And for those who say that dependency tracking package managers make things easier: *cough*

The thing that stops it updating is it wants to update /usr/bin/steam which it can't do as a normal user.

You can update that script manually by cutting the code Eric added to the top of it and pasting it into the script you find in ~/.local/share/Steam/bin_steam.sh and then as root copying the resulting new file over the top of the old one in /usr/bin/steam

Dependency checking ... shudder

Steam's auto update with no opt-out option is surely gonna bite some day. Just imagine an older game requesting hald to be installed.

The opt-out option (for downloading game dependencies) is to replace /usr/bin/steamdeps with something more appropriate for the distribution.
