    Run my script as root and user then start it.

    I can not see what you want with wayland. If you need mesa 9.0.1 as backport ask the irc://irc.freenode.net/#kanotix bot !mesa .

      i don't want wayland, libwayland is just a dependance of libegl1-mesa (which it probably shouldn't be, but that is another issue).

      I don't need a messy script that is going to do all kinds of things that I don't need. If libwayland wasn't an issue, I would just use force install to ignore the package name issue and be done.

        So....

        Are there still naysayers on here that the Steam client is coming to Linux? LOL

          I just played a bit of teamfortress 2 on linux

          I found a few problems.

          No sound, watching a vid in steam made the steam gui crash.
          I could not quit the game, I had to use ctrl alt esc.

          I posted the last two issues on the git hub.

          Opensuse 12.2 64 bit

            Hmm, I'm guessing that the issue is either the distro, or the sound server in use.

            I've been running TF2 on my Ubuntu 12.10 x64 box this afternoon on the r600g driver (Radeon 6850 w/ git mesa/drm + drm-next kernel on the LLVM R600 backend). It could use a good amount of performance optimization (I'm assuming on the part of the driver), but it's running and stable, and my sound is functioning (pulse with motherboard-based audio).

            I haven't yet managed to get the flash plugin working, so I haven't been able to watch any trailers in the Steam GUI.

              I posted about the sound on the opensuse forums.

              I know of a few opensuse users who do have sound.

              At the moment I can only guess what's wrong.

              Maybe LMMS ?
              Or the installer having a problem with my 5750 (hdmi which I dont use)
              and the onboard sound chip.

              I wish everybody stopped using flash.

                Is there anywhere that the executables log their stdout/stderr to? I know you can run them by hand by browsing to ~/.local/share/steam/common/SteamApps/ (or something like that)... You may need to play with the LD_LIBRARY_PATH in order to get it to find all the right libraries, but maybe it'll give you some insight.

                  Steam ( system overview ) says this:

                  Recent Failure Reports:
                  Thu Dec 20 18:28:23 2012 GMT: file ''/tmp/dumps/crash_20121220192817_1.dmp'', upload yes: ''CrashID=bp-38238b30-6ac7-41b3-8f50-8c1962121220''

                  On git hub I have an reply , he ? tells me:
                  crashes in libcef.so

                  Tomorrow I will try what you sugested.
                  I remember something about being able to see what goes wrong.
                  Maybe start steam from the command line.
                  If I remember right you could add something to the start command.

                    If you have no sound try to run:
                    SDL_AUDIODRIVER=alsa steam

                      for me this does the trick with pulseaudio to get sound on openSUSE 12.2 (64bit):
                      Code:
                      SDL_AUDIODRIVER=pulse steam

                          Hey guys, got steam installed correctly. But I seem to be having corruption in the gui. It is all garbled and messed up.... So I ran from the command line and got this message

                          Code:
                          radeon: The kernel rejected CS, see dmesg for more information.
                          OK, checked dmesg and this is what it had to say....

                              I have less CPU consumption using steam with wine lol. TF2 is a mess all over but cogs works great!

                                I am running Kubuntu 12.10 with the 3.5.0-21-generic kernel and the 310.14 driver and it works great. The only problems I have had in steam so far is for the game unwritten tales, it wouldn't start but if you turn off the overlay it works fine, and some steam console menus you can't click on with the mouse but if you highlight the first item you can use your arrow keys to scroll down to the item you want. Yes I have filed bug reports on both.
