Dear Bob i follow your instructions from previous page to create a steam package,i have a multilib system http://slackware.com/~alien/multilib/
download and install this http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/pe...eamclient/deps
Sorry for my bad english i'm from Bulgaria
/etc/rc.d/rc.pulseaudio start
E: [pulseaudio] core-util.c: Home directory / not ours.
Starting pulseaudio...
W: [pulseaudio] authkey.c: Failed to open cookie file '//.pulse-cookie': No such file or directory
W: [pulseaudio] authkey.c: Failed to load authorization key '//.pulse-cookie': No such file or directory
No protocol specified
E: [pulseaudio] client-conf-x11.c: xcb_connection_has_error() returned true
E: [autospawn] core-util.c: Home directory / not ours.
W: [autospawn] lock-autospawn.c: Cannot access autospawn lock.
E: [pulseaudio] main.c: Failed to acquire autospawn lock
It looks like you created your pulse user wrongly. I wrote this a bit different from the README instructions on slackbuilds.org...
Code:
# groupadd -g 216 pulse
# useradd -u 216 -g pulse -d /var/lib/pulse -m pulse
Note the extra "-m" which takes care of the creation of the directory as well as setting the proper ownership.

In fact, most engines nowadays are made to run on mobile devices also. There is no Direct3D on mobile devices (except Windows devices of course).

Im running multilib and have only installed compat32 packages. Im not in the beta so i cant try source games, but i do have Rochard and SPAZ from the HumbleBundle of which i only tried SPAZ.

EDIT: Rochard does not launch. I get error message "Failed to start game (missing executable.)"

That's an interesting idea. Have you personally gotten Steam working using this method?

Yes i did it that way and when type /etc/rc.d/rc.pulseaudio start i've got this Starting pulseaudio...
No protocol specified
E: [pulseaudio] client-conf-x11.c: xcb_connection_has_error() returned true
E: [pulseaudio] main.c: Daemon startup failed.

When i type pulseaudio Inconsistency detected by ld.so: dl-open.c: 667: _dl_open: Assertion `_dl_debug_initialize (0, args.nsid)->r_state == RT_CONSISTENT' failed! This is the error

I don't think you need to start pulseaudio, it just needs to be installed
because steam is linked to it. I have switched in the steam settings audio
to alsa and the gui works fine (including the big picture mode).

But I have no games available to try

Ok tried installing those packages and no go, then I turned networkmanager on and it stays running but it seems to stall with "Checking for available updates..." which could just be a steam issue.

So I would say that having networkmanager running is a dependency as well.

EDIT .... restarting steam and it is seg faulting again so back to the drawing board.
EDIT2 pulseaudio is missing a dependency libsamplerate, checked Eric'c multilib repository and there is no ready made package (Eric you will need to add a package for this)

I read somewhere on reddit that you need bitstream-vera ttf font.
So if you don't have it already get it here: http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14...itstream-vera/

Right, the client is incompatible with nouvea, I had to install the nvidia blob.

LATE EDIT

A game that does work is the World of Goo demo.

Game ID 22010

If you get the store page the link to install the PC demo works.

You missed that in one of my earlier posts I guess ;-)

I uploaded a few changes to my multilib repository. I have added ap/flac ap/sqlite l/libogg l/libsamplerate l/libvorbis to the massconvert32.sh script. These are the Slackware packages which will be needed if you want run the Linux version of Steam. I also refreshed all the *compat32 packages for Slackware 14.0 for those who do not want to run massconvert32.sh and just want to download & install packages.

The upload is currently underway to the server.

Too bloody happy that I finally got it to work more like it, and I was pretty tired and cranky by the time I figured out it was the video drivers causing the problem.

I also noticed but haven't posted that pulseaudio also requires libudev from udev.

Well crud! I can't even get the page where one joins to load correctly (https://store.steampowered.com/join/). None of the javascript things work like the pulldown menu for 'secret question' or the 'refresh' of the weird letter/numbers thing. I've tried it with seamonkey, firefox and opera.

I've got jre-7u9-i586-1 installed on my slackware 14 system (32 bit).

The java *seems* to work on other websites, but is there someplace I can check to make sure?
