Dota 2 Crashing on Slackware Current (AMD Open Source Drivers)


So I finally decided to see how Linux would fare as my main gaming machine, now that all the games I play run on Linux. However, I've been having some trouble getting Dota 2 to run.

First, I switched to Slackware's Current repository. I have a Radeon 6870 videocard, which apparently works very well with the open-source drivers, provided the Linux kernel is post 3.12. Since 14.1 uses version 3.10 (3.11 in testing), Current was the best option.

Then I set up multilib, using the setupmultilib.sh provided with slackpkg+. Afterwards I installed the Steam client via AlienBob's repository. To get it running, I had to install the libtxc_dxtn for texture decompression. This was done through sbopkg. Initially, I built a x64 version, which I installed. Then I built the x86 version. This was done using 32dev.sh to set up the environment for 32 bit development (part of AlienBob's compat32-tools), then ran sbopkg with ARCH=i486 set to build (but not install) the package. The resulting package was run through convertpkg-compat32, then installed.

In short, I'm pretty sure I got everything set up about right. I think.

Steam starts up and runs properly, and Dota 2 runs as well, but when I actually try to join a game (just bots for now) to test it out, the game crashes as soon as the map loads.

Here's the output I'm getting in the terminal:

My initial guess is that it seems like there's an issue with the 64-bit gameoverlayrenderer.so file being loaded, instead of the 32-bit one, but I'm not sure if I'm reading the messages correctly.

Anyone have any advice? I'm guessing this issue would apply to most of Valve's Source games, so if anyone has had a similar experience with another game, like TF2 or Portal, that might help.

Sorry for being verbose, I just want to make sure the process I took to get to this point is known, in case I messed up an earlier step.

Looks like a problem with dbus-glib dependency error and other packages aren't resolved for 32-bit software.

The error log should tell you which packages might be needed as it is looking for them and not finding them.

Thanks for the response! Which error log are you referring to, and where would it be located?

I had the same issue with the mesa driver from slackware.
To run steam games in slackware you need a couple of things:
1 - 32 bits libraries
2 - Recompile mesa drivers with several modifications
3 - s2tc (opengl texture extension)

If you use slackware64 you have to install alien bob multilib.
I made slackbuilds for the latest mesa and s2tc, you can find them here: https://github.com/mariolpantunes/sl...er/slackbuilds
Take into account that my mesa slackbuild is just for AMD R600 driver, you do not specify which AMD card you use.

If you are interested I can compile some packages for you system.

The terminal output you posted shows several indications. The dbus-glib child process error is the most pronounced also.

I have multilib installed, and that includes the dbus multilib libraries. I also have the s3tc library installed. I'm not sure I need s2tc, but I'll keep that in mind in case I do. I also started up NetworkManager, as it seems that Steam is looking for it, though I'm not sure why. (Unlikely that's causing the crash, but might as well give it a try.)

However, it looks like Pat just uploaded a boatload of packages to current, including a new Xorg version, so it seems I'll have to hold off trying to fix anything until current stabilizes and Eric uploads the associated multilib files. (I could make them myself, I guess, but it would probably be best to wait for the official sources.)

So I guess I'll have to come back to this once everything settles down and bug you guys then.

I'd be happy to add you. As for me, for now I've temporarily solved the issue by rolling back to Slackware 14.1 and installing the proprietary drivers. The game runs perfectly fine for now. I plan to wait for the next official Slackware release, which should have kernel 3.14+. The problem with running Current (for me) is that the updates compounded the problems so that Steam wouldn't even start. (I think this is due to some of the new Xorg packages not being built for 32-bit or something related.) Once things stabilize for the release, it will be a lot easier to get it working, so for now I can be patient and wait.

Also, one thing you should note is that Dota 2 needs OpenAL (with 32-bit multilib) installed to run. I strongly suspect this was the original cause of my problems. (I installed it just after I installed the proprietary drivers) So you may want to install that and check if your problem is solved.

In any case, the Arch wiki has some useful hints for Steam and Dota, as always:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/steam
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php...hooting#Dota_2

Not all of it is necessary (you don't need PulseAudio, for example), but the Arch pages should give you some good references as you troubleshoot the issues.
