Thanks for this. Loving the updates. Can't wait for the release!

Awesome. Thanks for the NVIDIA graphic drivers update! Finally I can go to Desktop Mode and Switch to Big Picture without rebooting my Steam Machine !

I still find it confusing that you refer to libavc1394 as libav in patch notes. Libav is actually an existing application that is a lot different than what is available in the SteamOS repo.
Pierre-Loup Aug 25, 2014 @ 5:09pm 
It looks like libav isn't published through the repository, so I'll try to omit it from changelogs from now on.

I'm loving these updates. Keep it up :)

I'm going to be looking into programming HLA and C language applications sometime in the future, possibly after getting my CompTIA A+ certification and become more educated and experienced at programming.

What's the version of the kernel?
McFRY!!! Aug 26, 2014 @ 4:33am 
I'm using XBMC from http://mirrors.xbmc.org/apt/steamos and the new VAAPI breaks nvidia support for VAAPI hardware acceleration. I get white blocks on H264 videos. Had to turn it off to force it to use VDPAU.

I installed the update . steamos told me to reboot . I reboot and now the steamos box hangs on a black screen with a mousepointer in the middle .

in dmesg i get a constant :
[ 10.190983] fglrx: disagrees about version of symbol module_layout

and there it hangs .

More people that see this or am i the only one . Im using AMD cpu + AMD gpu .

in dpkg.log the last things installed seems this :2014-08-26 14:01:35 status installed nvidia-alternative:amd64 337.19-1+bsos1

I had the same problem as you CrimInalA i don know how solved this problem y couldn´t find any solution
CrimInalA Aug 26, 2014 @ 7:54am 
I'm not sure but do you say you solved it ? Or did you reinstall steamOS entirely to "fix" it .

Are you also running an AMD videocard ?
mandruis Aug 26, 2014 @ 8:40am 
Yes,i am running a AMD videocard a HD7770 Ghz Edition
King Dude Aug 26, 2014 @ 1:01pm 
AMD video cards are temperamental with SteamOS, mostly AMD's fault. AMD doesn't quite pay attention to their Linux drivers as much as Nvidia does. I suggest everyone just stick with Nvidia cards until AMD gets their sh** together.
Pierre-Loup Aug 26, 2014 @ 3:28pm 
Hi mandruis,

What is the output of "sudo dkms status" on your system? The fglrx module should have been rebuilt when installing the new kernel, but it looks like it was not in your case.
GeeEl Aug 26, 2014 @ 3:30pm 
Anyone else with an nvidia card lost all sound? Any workarounds?

EDIT: HDMI audio output to TV, by the way.

Try wiggling the HDMI cord. Sometimes cords get old and shot. My cord's been plugged in and unplugged so many times sometimes the video cuts out.
