Phoronix: Steam Adds Support For 64-bit Linux Games to the Steam overlay
Valve has added support for the Steam overlay to support 64-bit Linux game titles.
With today's Steam client update, the Linux version is now able to render the overlay over 64-bit games. Previously, only 32-bit versions of games had this feature.
Other Linux changes in today's update include a fix for finding Steam client skins, a crash when looking at community images, the Linux Steam overlay not restoring the proper mouse cursor, and a resource leak leading to graphics corruption. This update also has Big Picture improvements and other general changes and fixes.
A 64 bit client with support for 32 bit games would be desirable
I would love to see full 64bit / 32bit support, be it either win7 or Linux. I'm kind of disappointed the Linux client isn't 64bit to be honest because of driver issues. Why make a 64bit steambox that is still using a 32bit os? Idiots.
