Anyone succeded in running steam with nouveau?
Anyone have succeded in running steam with nouveau or is it the only way to go proprietary? I use Arch and like to know if it works with Arch and nouveau.

Launching the client? Of course no problem.

Nouveau works fine with steam on arch; not sure why it wouldn't.
The games are a different story though :p. Nouveau isn't exactly the fastest thing ever.

they have said that in the 3.8 kernel the speed will be increased.

GTX 580 and latest X.Org Server
Only thing needed is xf86-video-noveau, lib32-nouveau-dri and noveau-dri. The last two are for 64 and 32 Bit 3D support.

I was able to get Steam to work, but couldn't get games to run, using nouveau. I switched to akmod and now all the games run fine. I have a 460GTX

i comfirm that linux kernel 3.8 does wonders with the open source driver "Nouveau". been using it for awhile now with ubuntu 13.04 alpha :D
still not nearly good enough for games tho around 10 fps compared to 73 with nvidia r310 drivers
tested on TF2

and older kernels can open steam okay but dont evem think about games with Nouveau
