Steam not launching on -current with multilib


I'm running a fresh install of -current, the only modification I've made is enabling multilib with the "quick 'n' dirty instructons" here. I tried installing both the libraries/OpenAL, libraries/libtxc_dxtn, and games/steam SlackBuilds from the 14.2 repo. This is the output I get from running steam:
Quote:
bash-5.0$ steam
Couldn't find dpkg, please update steamdeps for your distribution.
Actually, don't worry - this is Slackware!

Running Steam on slackware 14.2 64-bit
STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically
Pins up-to-date!
Error: You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run:
libc.so.6
/home/me/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/libX11.so.6: file too short
However, I know I have the library installed:
Quote:
bash-5.0$ locate libc.so.6
/boot/initrd-tree/lib64/libc.so.6
/lib/libc.so.6
/lib64/libc.so.6
What is going on here?

/usr/lib/libX11.so.6 is corrupted. Maybe something went wrong when you downloaded libX11-compat32 package. Download this package again, verify the md5sum(*) and reinstall it.


(*) It would be better to verify the md5sum of all multilib packages.

For some reason all the checksums were accurate, but the install had somehow failed. I ended up reinstalling gcc and everything in x-compat32/, that fixed it. Thanks.
