Unprivileged container to run wine/steam on slackware64 with no multilib


So until now I was using flatpaks to install steam and wine stuff on my slackware64-current, this in order to avoid installing and maintaining multilib.
But today I found this cute little portable unprivileged container: Conty
The prepackaged release is based on arch and contains quite a lot of stuff: steam, wine staging, gcc, pcmanfm... but you can roll your own as minimal as you like according to the README.
It's also sandboxable with bubblewrap if you are a fan of this feature.
I briefly tested it and it ran my diablo 2 like a champ, so I'm definitely thinking about replacing the flatpaks with this.
The container requires unprivileged user containers to be enabled on the kernel and I found instructions on how to do so in Debian and Arch because they are disabled by default, but I don't recall setting anything specific here on slackware in the past, so it seems to run fine out-of-the-box, I hope someone can confirm this.

Thanks! It runs some applications better than alien's wine but doesn't run others at all. So it can't replace multilib + wine and crossover in my case but is a nice addition.

By testing this I found out that some programs that had bugs in former versions of the normal wine now run smoothly. It seems that some improvement have been made there as well. I probably do not need my windows vm anymore

That sad I have only tested commercial business software with wine. I did not test steam and lutris since I'm not a gamer.

Looks very interesting! Thanks for the heads up. Have a little bit on my plate at the moment but I will definitely give this a run.

Wow. That is very useful. Thanks for posting!

EDIT: I just tried this on a clean installation of Slackware64-current without multi-lib. It loads Warcraft 3 with no issues. It's brilliant! This is the way of the future.

Regarding this, it's a bit misleading. The X-namespace kernel features are enabled by default, see /boot/config-generic-x
Code:
CONFIG_UTS_NS=y
CONFIG_TIME_NS=y
CONFIG_IPC_NS=y
CONFIG_USER_NS=y
CONFIG_PID_NS=y
CONFIG_NET_NS=y
It's up to the OS/user/program to use the namespace, that's why it came with sysfs entries that can be activated/deactivated in runtime (without reboot) via sysctl.

It runs Steam perfectly. Even on an older installation of Slackware64 current. Again without multilib.

Anyone have any tricks to get sound working on a 14.2 install? Steam games are silent. I also tried using mpg123 to play an mp3 out of my home directory and got the following:

Code:
jbhansen@craven-moorhead:~/Downloads$ sh conty.sh mpg123 ~/04\ \ -\ Linkin\ Park\ -\ New\ Divide\ -\ Linkin\ Park.mp3 
Running Conty

Just a guess, but there's this openAL error in your log:
Code:
[ALSOFT] (EE) Failed to set real-time priority for thread: Operation not permitted (1)
Got this (EE) here too, with a simple openal-info command, on 14.2 without pulseaudio.
Setting openal as default output driver for mplayer works fine, however.

Good catch! I didn't realize ALSOFT was from OpenAL.

Unfortunately, this doesn't really give me anything to go off of. mpg123 wouldn't be using OpenAL, so it seems there's some issue with sharing audio between the container and the OS.

Well if there's a difference in openal-info output when it runs from inside and outside the container, it may point to the probable cause.
Anyway, there must be some cli switch or configuration option like in winecfg to specify the correct audio device.
But I don't actually run the container, just noticed the same error that I already seen before with openal.

I'm running Steam with no issues (so far) on a pure 64bit 14.2 installation. I'm more than surprised.

OK, already figured the default playback device will differ because of your mpg123 output.
There is also the openal version mismatch which may or may not be relevant, but my first guess would be it's just trying to use the wrong device for whatever reason.

Few notes:
mpg123 has -a switch to specify device

The alsamixer on host and alsamixer on guest should display the same default device, so I guess when the correct device is specified in the guest it could be saved with "alsactl store".
Unless something else is using the host device; sound on the guest should just work the same as sound on the host.

Old wine (2.0 and below) required a hardware device and did not tolerate an emulated pulseaudio device, no idea about new wine and wine-staging as I don't really use it.
Since the OP appears to have sound working, it's probably just some local setting on your end.

That makes a lot of sense. I imagine it's probably defaulted to my hdmi output, so I'll have to play with it once I get home from work to figure out how to change the default audio device. However, would I be doing this in the container through alsa (bringing me back to the days before 14.2) or would I do it with pulseaudio (and if it's with pulseaudio, would I be using pavucontrol or some config file)?

Do you have some other programs that are actively using your sound card running in the background? And do you use manual ALSA config like /etc/asound.conf or ~/.asoundrc?

I suggest to try to run with SANDBOX enabled:

Code:
SANDBOX=1 BIND="${HOME}/04  - Linkin Park - New Divide - Linkin Park.mp3" bash conty.sh mpg123 ~/"04  - Linkin Park - New Divide - Linkin Park.mp3"
And you can try to bind /proc and/or whole /etc:
Code:
BIND="/proc /etc"  - Linkin Park - New Divide - Linkin Park.mp3" bash conty.sh mpg123 ~/"04  - Linkin Park - New Divide - Linkin Park.mp3"
Also try mpg123 with another output module (e.g. sdl).
Code:
mpg123 -o sdl
