    Phoronix: More Fedora Delays: Fedora 21 Beta Slips

    While the Fedora 21 Alpha release was challenged by multiple delays that put it back one month, the delays aren't over yet. At yesterday's first Go/No-Go meeting for the Fedora 21 Beta, it was determined that the beta release isn't quite ready yet...

    Michael, while we're at it, are you experiencing problems with Steam on Fedora 21? My main installation has an AMD HD7850 card with mesa drivers, and Steam warns me of missing GLX acceleration when it starts up, then a number of games that worked just fine in Fedora 20 either hang or crash on startup. Oddily, other seem to be just fine. I installed Steam from rpmfusion, btw.

      I should not use "slip" in the announcement, my fault. But in the end, during the effort to try Go/No-Go meeting today, we found serious blocker. That means real slip unfortunately. We will try to find a way how to deal with tight schedule.

        I guess it's not an F21 issue but rather how steam discovers its 32bit GL drivers.

        Also using steam from rpmfusion. I started getting this GL warning issue with F20 from some point ago up to this day, but I don't recall exactly when it broke. And now L4D2 on F20 starts but doesn't render any longer - just a blank screen, sound is fine, otoh Team Fortress still works fine (the rendering works and the sound).

        The workaround that worked for me: I installed in parallel Ubuntu 14.04.1 amd64 - steam works fine there (particularly L4D2 rendering works).

          This script works like a charm.

          Code:
          #!/bin/bash
          DIR=$HOME/.local/share/Steam/
          
          echo "Removing libstd"
          find $DIR -iname "libstd*" -exec rm -rf {} \;
          
          echo "Removing libgcc"
          find $DIR -iname "libgcc*" -exec rm -rf {} \;
          
          echo "All Done"

            Didn't solve the issue for me.

              I experienced the same problems with my Arch Linux notebook and instructions in this link solved the problems:

              Hope helps you too.

                Deleting the embedded libs fixed it for me, thanks!
