jtsn, be that as it may...I've been using Alien Bob's steam client package since day one (having given up on my own package). I've got symlinks in ~/.steam pointing to all the goodies in ~/Steam so either I'm using the wrong package under Xfce, or there are two Alien Bobs. Besides, looking at the steam-1.0.0.42.tar.gz "source" packages processed via steamclient.Slackbuild shows that ~/.steam is hard coded.

Which bring us back around to heiser891's seg fault issue on -current. He is probably either missing a dependency, or -current has one that is too new for the steam debugger. Perhaps exploring for other warnings/errors in the console output will provide clues.

Several days ago I installed 1.0.0.42. Haven't tried Alien's steam packages since the very beginning and was surprised how easy was it to install and that it worked out of the box. I tried downloading 1 demo and 1 free-to-play game just to see how it works, and it worked perfectly.

Just wanted to say thank you to AlienBob for doing a good job. And also thanx to Valve and the GabeN for having an ear for non-Ubuntu distros (no nasty dependencies anymore).

Well all the dependencies are still there, they are just self-contained now, in the debian package.

I'm using slackware64-current with Alien's most recent build of steam. I have all my multilibs, compat32s of OpenAL, flash, and oxygen-gtk installed, yet I cannot click any buttons in steam.

Here's the dump (source):
Code:
$ steam

What went wrong?

I'm thinking it might have to do with my having an Nvidia graphics card. Is there some compat32 driver I need for that?

thanks

If you use the Nvidia driver, you have to re-install that everytime there has been an upgrade to the Slackware packages mesa or xorg-0server. Additionally on a multilib system, when you are installing the Nvidia driver, when it asks to also install the 32-bit libraries you have to answer "Yes".

I am running Steam on a slackware64-current machine with multilib and I can use the GUI just fine.

I usually install the nvidia driver via sbopkg from slackbuilds.org
After having removed any previous driver, i do this

Code:
sbopkg -i nvidia-kernel
COMPAT32=yes sbopkg -i nvidia-driver
The COMPAT32=yes variable tells the SlackBuild to install 32 bit libraries as well

[ERROR]Cannot access secondary GPU…Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module

Thanks for the replies, AlienBob and ninikos.

I've since discovered that I'm using an Optimus laptop, which apparently changes things considerably.

Code:
[ERROR]Cannot access secondary GPU

The "Turbo" light on the laptop, which indicates if the Nvidia card is on, turns on when I invoke optirun, which is good.

I've tried the solutions to this "Cannot access secondary GPU" problem on ArchWiki, but to no avail…

Also, my trackpad freezes upon logging into KDE, so I'm thinking this might involve an issue in xorg.conf.

I'm running slackware64-current with the 3.14.27 kernel.

There's a thread about the "failed to initialize kernel module" part of this issue here, but it's old, from 2004.

thanks
