Is it requiring a specific video driver? I'm on the open source intel driver right now and it still shuts down, granted much later on in the process... any more troubleshooting i can do?
Still, it shuts down after it tries to connect to some servers instead of before, which is further than it was getting. Is there something better than strace to figure out what is going on?
It currently only shows the splash when you use nvidia or ati binary drivers - be sure that 32 bit libs are installed for those.
So when can we get Valve to officially announce this? I'm just as excited as everyone else but theres really no good in just getting the splash screen. I'm hoping phoronix is probing people at valve for an official answer.
I'm also hoping this is out before HL2E3 and Portal 2 are out, I don't want to play it in wine.
