I sometimes get strange errors with this, because of this i always install multilib before installing the nvidia drivers.
Otherwise.. well you will end up with a broken mesa i guess...

You need multilib for steam unless you use 32-bit slackware and also many steam games are 32-bit only.

I think you're right "team.sh: line 444: no match: ssfn*" is often graphics related and nvidia driver don't install 32-bit if there is no 32-bit on the system.
Reinstalling the graphics driver is what Trasa should try.

OMG i cant beleive it, last ditch attempt, and i had installed the nividia 32 bit compat libs before, i am certain, but reinstalling the NVIDIA drivers WORKED!!!??

I installed multilib after the nvida drivers, so maybe that had someting to with it, but i am astonished.

Thanks guys

Stellaris is currently installing, fingers crossed.

Stellaris, my current favorite game seems to run fine

Yeah, the Nvidia blob won't install the 32-bit compatible libraries, if there's no 32-bit detected. Also, whenever you do a kernel update, don't forget to uninstall and reinstall those.

I've heard much good about Stellaris.

Trasa --

I am pretty sure that you should install NVidia after you install Multilib.

That-a-way NVidia will detect your 32-bit libs and offer to build 32-bit libs and most importantly, it will replace a few the Standard Slackware64 and Slackware32 Libraries with NVidia's Version.

Along the same lines ... if-or-when the Slackware Dev Team upgrades xorg-server, mesa, pango, cairo, zlib be sure to reinstall NVidia.

For completeness and I am not sure where I got this list ( and it may be out-of-date by now ), but in my update wrapper-script I have:

Code:
   NumNVidiaPackage  = HasNvidiaPackage = 0
   NVidiaPackageAry[ "xorg-server" ] = ++NumNVidiaPackage  # lotsa /libxxx.so files here
   NVidiaPackageAry[ "mesa" ]        = ++NumNVidiaPackage  # mesa is in the x-set so this is redundant
   NVidiaPackageAry[ "pango" ]       = ++NumNVidiaPackage  # see the if ( HasNvidiaPackage == 0 ) block below
   NVidiaPackageAry[ "cairo" ]       = ++NumNVidiaPackage
   NVidiaPackageAry[ "zlib" ]        = ++NumNVidiaPackage
If any of these Slackware packages are updated, I am prompted to reinstall NVidia AFTER I upgradepkg the 64-bit and compat32 packages.

HTH.

I've been simply reinstalling mesa and xorg-server-* and never had any issues.
