Steam @ FedoraPeople
Hey guys,

some guy @ Fedora packaged steam. Here's the repo. It installs 32bit libs and stuff. Is this normal?

steam is a 32 bit binary and depends on 32 bit libraries, so yes, it's normal.

EDIT: As of 28/12/12 Spot's steam repository is no longer available. These instructions will not work

To give credit where due (judging by the web location) it appears that Tom "Spot" Callaway packaged this: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Spot

As Joe said there are many 32-bit dependencies! Doing an install of his Steam package on my fairly clean 64-bit system of pulled in another 80(yes eighty) i686 packages. I also had to manually install some 32-bit libraries in order for a few 3D intensive games to work.


For anybody who's unclear, or learning Fedora, here's some steps:
  • Save a copy of the steam.repo[spot.fedorapeople.org] repository configuration file from: http://spot.fedorapeople.org/steam/
  • Start a terminal
  • Using sudo, copy the repo file in to your repository directory /etc/yum.repos.d directory:
    sudo mv steam.repo /etc/yum.repos.d
  • Install steam using the "yum" package manager:
    sudo yum install steam
  • Enter "Y" to confirm that you want to install 1 package (plus many Dependant packages)
  • If you are running a 64-bit version, you'll need to do a little more:
  • If you have not already, configure the "RPM Fusion" package repository (See these instructions http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration)
  • Install the 32-bit (i686) libraries for your graphics card (Thanks Brano!). For NVIDIA this is:
    $ sudo yum install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686
  • Exit the terminal (Ctrl +D)
You can now start steam from the launcher (it will download a number of Steam client updates the first time installed)

Note: the "Big Picture" feature probably won't work without you making changes to Fedora's SELinux[en.wikipedia.org] security feature. However arguably the "Big Picture" feature isn't so useful in Linux at the moment. See this thread for more details.

Be warned: By default, Steam will download and install all games in to your home directory! In order to modify this (and ensure TF2 works) exit the steam client, copy the entire ~/Steam directory to the desired location and create a symbolic link to it.
Tip:
ln -s /<desired location>/Steam ~/Steam

PS: It appears that to "install" steam properly on a Fedora-based distribution, that you should run steam as root once so that it can copy the steam binary in to the /usr/bin directory. (The Ubuntu-based script looks for "gksudo" which isn't commonly used in Fedora)
(Disclaimer: I've not yet had the time to read through this script and understand all it does)

Run
sudo steam
. This will produce a number of errors, although they do not appear to affect steam working.

From this point onward, you can run steam using your own user account straight from the launcher (no need to use sudo again)

Knowing Spot personally, I'd hardly call him "some guy." ;-)

So, I told my wife, "someone packaged Steam for Fedora."
"Was it you?"
*shakes head*
"Spot?"
"Yep!"

A strange rpm... anyone knows a way of doing from original sources?

What RPM are you talking about? Did you download the RPM from Steam, or are you using the repo evade used? Additional info would be great so we can help.

I installed from this repo. I documented all the steps I took here:

I had installed steam from the fedorapeople repo like you discribed in your howto. I can start steam and download team fortress but if i try to start it, i get the following error message:
"Could not finde requiered OpenGl entry point 'glGetError'! Either your video card is unsupported, or your OpenGl driver needs to be updated."

Iám running fedora 17 64bit on a AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 965 Processor, 8GB RAM, AMD Radeon 6950. System runs on a Samsung SSD 830 and the home directory is mounted from a Western Digital hard drive.

The Version of the catalyst driver is 12.10 and mesa is 9.0.

Excellent work. I can say that I do have Steam running on FC17, Linux 3.6.8-2.fc17.x86_64.

However, when installing a game (like TF2) I am met with a prompt that says "Create start menu shortcut to Team Fortress 2". Last I checked, I wasn't running Windows on my Linux machine.

Thanks folks!

Yeah, now that I've actually downloaded and had a chance to try TF2 (not the Beta version), I have the same problem!

This problem is discussed (albeit currently without solution) here:
http://steamcommunity.com/app/221410/discussions/1/846938350951141900/

To get more verbose output:
1. Start Steam
2. Start the shell script for TF2 separately, from a terminal:
~/Steam/SteamApps/< your user name >/Team\ Fortress\ 2/hl2.sh
3. Click OK to close the error window and note the results.

With my "GeForce 9600 GT" I personally get:
libGL: screen 0 does not appear to be DRI2 capable
libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib/dri/swrast_dri.so
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast
SDL video target is 'x11'
SDL video target is 'x11'
SDL failed to create GL compatibility profile (whichProfile=0!
PROBLEM: You appear to have OpenGL 1.4.0, but we need at least 2.0.0!
Could not find required OpenGL entry point 'glGetError'! Either your video card is unsupported, or your OpenGL driver needs to be updated.

The output of the "vainfo" command confirms the initial error about DRI2 capability:
libva: VA-API version 0.32.1
Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0".
libva: va_getDriverName() returns 0
...

So that's what I'm investigating now. I suspect that I may be missing a specific package, or have a 64-bit version and require a 32-bit for steam.

Edit: Contrary to my first reply, I actually don't have those packages installed (I have the 64-bit versions). How did you find they were dependencies please?

Thanks!

Folks,

if you are using proprietary drivers on 64bit system, try to install 32bit nvidia libraries:
yum install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686
