Steam for Linux

Steam for Linux

Steam and lib.so
I have the latest Crunchbang installed and have apt-get install steam which installs fine but then complains about not having lib.so 32 bit or something so I install the 32 bit compatibility libraries in the nvidia installer or whatever its called and that installed fine. I still get no luck wiht it, still spits out the same error each time. I tried installing steam-debian and it just returns: Segmentation Fault. Halp!

We can't help you if you don't mention your hardware, Linux distro, drivers version installed.

And there is no lib.so, it's name should be something else (and it really matters).

I'm pretty sure you are still missing 32 bit libraries on your OS. Maybe you didn't installed the right ones. That's common mistake.

Have you tried a soft link with libGL.so?

I think so, what does that involve?

Locate the original libGL.so with
locate libGL.so
or
find / -iname libGL.so

And then use the path to the appropriate libGL.so file with libGL.so.1 with:

ln -sf libGL.so libGL.so.1

If you're experiencing the same issues still, then we'll need more info as to your drivers, so:

dpkg -l | grep NVIDIA

Update: I just checked the thread over once more and since it's possible you're missing 32-bit libraries, try this as well:

dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

The foresaid commands should only be used if the last commands fail to resolve your issue.

Did you find any libGL.so.1 in your system? Say, in /usr/lib32?
Run Steam in terminal, copy its output, paste it on pastebin.com and give here link to it.
Will do, Im away from the machine at the moment but il post soon.
Oh and yeah, I did find libngGL.so just fine, have it where it is expected.
