    I'm using Mint 16 and haven't seen this, but when I installed Steam I remember a complaint about S3TC support. Maybe that will help?

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0
    [ "$(uname -m)" = "x86_64" ] && sudo apt-get install libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0:i386
    No it wont, they have a dependency error relating to other packages. They have to correct the dependency issues manually and install libllvm3.4:i386 manually:

    Code:
    apt-get install libllvm3.4:i386
    or aptitude instead of apt-get. Aptitude is better in dependency resolving IMO.

    • Sorry to ask, but is there any real reason why there are every day 1 to 2 updates? does the mesa stuff really change that often?

        I set up a system that update every package up to two times a day if there are any changes. And yes, mesa changes often, you can see the log of the changes here:

                I just backported the version in trusty 1.2.1-2 (building now).

                • Updates

                  You may have noticed, other than the usual updates, I backported from Ubuntu 14.04 updated free codecs (opus and opus-tools, libvpx), s2tc fixing a bug, final llvm-3.4, intel-vaapi and, as a holiday present, supertuxkart 0.8.1.
