Much appreciated. Your package works great. I'll have to keep an eye on deps, but so far so good. As I never really got the hang of TF2, I purchased Serious Sam 3 and so far so good. I'll see if I can "test" a few others in my copius free time!

We now have "Counter-Strike: Source" in the games list.

yeah, unfortunately I don't play Counter Strike. But it appears that Valve have ported their Source engine to Linux now, and it's hoping that Half-life 2 will become available for Linux as well. I never finished that game because I ditched my Windows partition and had graphical issues with Half-Life 2 in Wine at that time.

I hope that games we already own for steam on windows will carry over to the linux version so we'll not have to purchase them again. I noticed half-life 1 is there now, which I own a windows copy of.

If you own a game on Steam, you get access to all supported platforms. If a game supports Windows, Mac, and Linux, you can use it on all 3, if you choose.

Perhaps I didn't word that correctly, I own an original windows CD of the game, not the installed through steam version.

You should then be able to activate a legit steam copy by providing your CD-key code in steam.
Go under the game menu->activate steam product.

A big thank you to AlienBob for all of the work he's put into packaging Steam for Slackware -- it now works perfectly on my netbook (mainly used for chatting).

Currently on my 64-current +multilib desktop Steam crashes before login complaining that direct rendering isn't enabled (contrary to glxinfo). I'm wondering if I need to somehow run the 32-bit fglrx drivers instead of the x86_64 that I have installed. Thoughts?

You have to reinstall the drivers after going multilib, otherwise the driver will not build the necessary 32 bit parts.

I reinstalled completely (removing the fglrx package then rerunning the amd installer) just before making the post, to no avail.

(fglrx-9.012-x86_64-1.tgz is what the installer produced)

I am not quite sure if the installer will build the 32 bit portions if you build a package. I had the same issue and reinstalling the driver solved it, but I always use the direct install option.

Thanks Tobi, you nailed it -- the package install won't add the 32-bit libraries/drivers/requirements. Installing in non-packaged mode solved it and now I'm happily logging in!

Hmm I didn't even think to try out the direct install option. I always built the slack package for it, and never could get TF2 to run. Seems their slackbuild is outdated. Next time I have some free time I'm going to try installing it directly instead of making a slack package.

Everything running smoothly until I purchased Trine 2. It cannot dynamically link to the libs in ~/.local/share/Steam/Steamapp/commen/Trine\ 2/lib/ I've tried to run steam with the command: LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/myuser/.local/share/Steam/Steamapp/commen/Trine\ 2/lib/ steam

Has anybody managed to get Trine 2 working on Slackware?

It's going strong.

* Intrustion 2 is out. That's an awesome Metal Slug clone that won a lot of awards. The Linux version is infamous for its dependencies, so it should be a good test of what Alien Bob did with Steamdeps

* Trine 2: Goblin Menace is actually available on Linux Steam. It was just never advertised as being available:

* Unity of Command and its expansion pack are both available. Those got fantastic reviews.

* The Tripwire Interactive Bundle now consists almost entirely of Linux games
