steam @ fedorapeople.org (updated)
Hello,

I've updated spot's excellent rpm package to the latest 1.0.0.21 for Fedora 17 and 18.
It changed quite a bit from the old one; and it works fine on my systems (both 32 and 64 bits).

Any constructive comment is much appreciated.

I've asked spot if he wants some help on mantaining it; in the meanwhile I've posted a new repository.

Repository

http://slaanesh.fedorapeople.org/steam/

To install, simply download the repository file and install steam through yum.

# cd /etc/yum.repos.d
# wget http://slaanesh.fedorapeople.org/steam/fedora-steam.repo
# yum install steam

RPM Fusion

To make it work in Fedora, the "rpmfusion-free" and "rpmfusion-nonfree" repositories are REQUIRED.

rpmfusion-free: libtxc_dxtn for S3 compression library if you use nouveau/radeon/intel
rpmfusion-nonfree: xorg-x11-drv-nvidia/catalyst for proprietary drivers

To enable them, perfom the following (replace 18 with 17 as appropriate):

Fedora 18:


Nvidia / AMD proprietary drivers

Since I've not backported all the base Fedora packages as spot did, on Fedora 17 it should work only with the proprietary drivers.

Fedora 18:

# rpm -i http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-18.noarch.rpm
# yum -y update
# yum install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia or xorg-x11-drv-catalyst
# reboot

For 64 bit systems you need to install ALSO the 32 bit libraries in addition to the above.

# yum install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686 or xorg-x11-drv-catalyst-libs.i686

Very nice, thank you for including Fedora. How are the drivers and games running together?
Any good frame rates?
The games run very smooth with the proprietary Nvidia drivers, if I use the stock nouveau/kms drivers included in Fedora + libtxc_dxtn the games run well but surely not on par with Nvidia's performance.

In fact I'm surprised how well Team Fortress 2 runs on my cheap laptop's built-in "NVIDIA Corporation GT218 [NVS 3100M]" with the nouveau drivers.

I have a SLI setup at home but I haven't been able to test it yet.

The only thing I don't have working is the "big picture mode"; if I click on the button I can only make Steam crash.

- Updated to 1.0.0.22 with some packaging changes
- Updated the instructions in the first post for rpmfusion and Nvidia / AMD drivers.
- Updated to 1.0.0.25 with packaging changes because of the new package format.

You can get the nvidia 310 and 313 series drivers for Fedora 18 from here:

http://www.kielek.net/configure-kielek-yum-repository

Which is meant to complement the RPM Fusion repo for Fedora 18. See the following for more info:

- Updated to 1.0.0.27

I really doubt, all distributions are different.

- Updated to 1.0.0.29
- Updated to 1.0.0.34

Are you using steam or steam-launcher package?

I'm "rebuilding" the steam tarball at http://repo.steampowered.com/steam/pool/steam/s/steam/steam_1.0.0.34.tar.gz.

What is steam-launcher? The package I make allows me to launch steam with the application icon or by command line... what else is needed?

to make an rpm, you need a list of dependecies

And how do you think the rpm is made? This does not answer the question what is steam-launcher.

The spec file with its huge amount of dependencies is here:
