I installed SteamOS 1 week ago on a 1TB m.2 SSD and have to say I'm impressed with how much it's improved since 1 year ago.

Most of my problems are minor like a button graphical glitch.

I am interested in information about if the Bluetooth issue was resolved and also information about DC as I am on a AMD RX 480 and playing sound on a spare set of 2 speakers with no bass so the HDMI Audio will be a big deal to me as audio on my TV is much louder.

I was playing DOTA the other day and accidently opened the keyboard from the Steam Overlay and couldn't figure out how to close it.

I am interested in reporting bugs and doing HDMI recordings of things if there is a website I can post that on for you guys to look at.

I have a question John, as my previous issues appear to be from adding the Debian repo, did you change something in the autoupdate script to rule this out, or is it still 'required' to get rid of the repo for unattended upgrades?

Thanks for the update to brewmaster. I had no problems coming from the latest beta.

We don't test or support this scenario. Depending on what you have installed and what debian repos you are pointing at, this might or might not work. unattended-upgrades is very finicky and conservative about what it installs, it is easy to break this. If you are "crossing the streams' like this then you should expect to have to sort out the occasional upgrade issues. Sorry I don't have a better answer, but the debian packaging system was never intended to address a situation like you have created.

Nice, great update! This really brings it up to more modern standards for current games. Hopefully the graphics drivers especially can stay current moving forwards!

Side question, I remember watching Debconf a few years back a Valve developer mentioned moving to an atomic or image based update system separate from Apt for the base system - is this still planned?

Very well, I will get rid of the Debian repo's. The next time I report feedback should be more valuable (sorry about that).

The most important package from the Debian repo I'm actually using is cpufrequtils, for obvious reasons. Any chance this package can be added to the Valve repo?

Thank you, this time I couldn't update from the steam client and I had to do it from the desktop. I have only tested metro 2033 redux and everything works fine.

I lost my sound, but a simple reconfig of the sound settings brought it back.

It seems to happen for me every time Nvidia drivers are updated.

This update on my Zotac Steam machine seems to be processed fine.

Most of my games and the Steam-Client are running fine.

But all of my Vulkan games (F1 2017, The Talos Principle, Dota 2, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III and Serious Sam Fusion 2017) are crashing now on Startup.

Will this be fixed on update 2.149?
vulkan - Fixes Vulkan on NVIDIA when AMDGPU-PRO ICD is installed.
I don't know, if AMDGPU-PRO ICD is installed on my Steam Machine.

Test it and report back? That definitely sounds directed at your use case.
