thanks for the help but i managed to extract the rpm and now cegega starts up.

just another problem. I have installed the steam.exe rather than the msi and it has istalled steam. But when steam starts it says connecting to steam account and just sits their doing what appears to be nothing. Its a good year since i last installed steam on linux so i cant remember if it eventualy starts working.
