Which Distro has the best performance ?
A source-based distro with a custom kernel.
Sounds pretty Gentoo to me: you decide the exact performance questions.
You know, compiling exactly for your processor, cflags and such. Kernel tweaking, removing extra things you`ll never need… there`s a lot of things you may consider.

Ты бы выхлоп консоли посмотрел, например. Или, даже запостил.
I`m using Debian Sid. The link was not created by that steam init script.

The thing is that there was /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/, however it was a link to libpng16. So steamwebhelper tried to load the global libpng12, got actuall libpng16 and went down.

Apparently, my libcairo uses libpng12 only.

Oh, I see. My steam repo points to some ancient Ubuntu repo. Precise. Do they have other builds?
Would you show console output from steam to show us your errors?

Then I noticed there was no need for that.... so I opted back out after it finished updating and restarting.... And the opt out restart/update process landed us here...
No amount of :
2. downright deleting,
3. libnss
4. apt-get upgrade steam
or anything else I've found has fixed it... still getting the same error when I try to run it. Here's the output on terminal:

Running Steam on ubuntu 18.04 64-bit STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically Unpack runtime failed, error code 2 Error: Couldn't set up the Steam Runtime. Are you running low on disk space? Continuing... Error: You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run: [2018-09-21 15:20:59] Startup - updater built Sep 8 2018 19:20:58 Looks like steam didn't shutdown cleanly, scheduling immediate update check [2018-09-21 15:20:59] Checking for update on startup [2018-09-21 15:20:59] Checking for available updates...

You could install all these 32-bit libraries as well.
After an update, I had most of steam features broken (since steamwebhelper didn`t work due to mismatched libpng12).

Here`s an excerpt:
./steamwebhelper: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ version `PNG12_0' not found (required by ~/.steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/pinned_libs_64/

That library was actually libpng16.

How do you fix it: you just make a symbolic link to an old libpng12 included in the steam runtime like this:

user@host:~/.steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/pinned_libs_64$ ln -sf ../amd64/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/

Install it as a second OS. You can even try it without installing by grabbing Live CDs( making live usbs ot of them is better, since CDs are slow)

mh i have windows 8.1 and i want to try some new os but i like to play new modern games like the division, gta v, cs go, but i know the linux don't have support for that all :(
Then maybe you don`t need Linux at all. For gaming. It won`t give you performance benefits.
However, if you want to try Linux, you can install it on a separate partition alongside your Windows installation. That`s called "dual-boot". You`ll be able to launch Windows or Linux on boot.
If you want to play several games on Linux, you could try Steam games, other distributors (like Humble Bundles if you`re into indie or Desura) or try to play not-that-new Windows games with Wine. Wine has its own compatibility database {LINK REMOVED}. It`s quite huge, though you won`t find answers to every your question.

There already _is_ a distro that "rules them all". Even a whole family. The Red Hat/Fedora/friends. They are dominant.

>etc etc etc

I, for one, played Linux games (Cube 2, Red Eclipse) on a separate X display.
Like this:
xinit redeclipse -- :1
It gained much more FPS than normally. Cinnamon, Gnome and friends would slow you down :)
Yet I`m running KDE for now, have to try to switch the display for Steam. Maybe Big Picture will work better.

Arch Linux, Gentoo and Slackware users with their mentality of "Ubuntu is for noobs", are not helping the community in any way.

QOTD: old distros` users are not helping. Throw them out.

Yep, they didn`t write these piles of documentation. There is no ArchWiki, no Gentoo Wiki and forums you could stumble upon. There`s no SlackBook.

There are no such things for the author of the quote. He went to Ubuntu from his Windows or Mac installation, and seen no discomfort. Yet he does not know why did he made the choice about moving. Yet another user-friendly OS, and everything he could use beyond the user-friendliness - he can`t use it. So does he look like a Linux user? No, he does not. Is he really a Linux user? He is not, he went here one day and in a couple of months, he will be gone. Because Ubuntu is yet another ecosystem, though a buggy one.

So who _helps_ the community? A Ubuntu user?
How could he help the community?
Some seasoned ones do help. They do help a whole lot.
You don`t help.

Removing some from the upstream, like Upstart (replaced by His Poettring Majesty`s System D) and trying to counter the others, like Mir (countering Wayland)

Most people here are too stuck on Ubuntu/Debian based distro's to actually know how to use distro that takes more than a set it and forget it mindset.
They miss a whole lot. Saying this as a Slackware user :D
And yep, Finnix is absolutely the best lag-free Linux distro.

As for the "SteamOS the best" discussion: Valve is not an expert for making Linuxes.
Yet they have to put everything into the distro.
The best SteamOS is a verse for the particular machine. Made for a specific processor.
It`s yet to come.

And I`ve purged my Steam Library, that`s baaaad :(

In topic md5sum runtime check failure
While starting up, Steam checks the MD5 checksum of the runtime package and compares if to a saved one. However, the startup script compares the verbatim output of the packager`s md5sum utility to my md5sum`s output. Here it is:
Runtime checksum: c3d595ab832ee53246bc96e121b12f19 steam-runtime.tar.xz, expected c3d595ab832ee53246bc96e121b12f19 steam-runtime.tar.xz
The difference is the tab between the checksum and file name, the stored checksum uses two spaces.

I guess, getting the first word of the output like
md5sum $PACKAGE | cut -f 1
would be better.

Well, I guess posting that to feature requests won`t give me much, and I don`t want to register on GitHub to post a single bug report, so, would anyone report that? :D

Yes I'm playing on Wi-Fi.
I'm using private VPN service, paid I mean, maybe I should give it a chance?
Are there any usefull console commands that I can use to reduce ping, like ''cl_interp_ratio 2 and cmd and updrate rate 64'', should they work?
Thanks by the way.
Wifi slows down your connection, get a patch cord, lol. Well, I do play via Wifi myself. 100+, even 300+ pings are common to me.

I think that VPN will slow you down even more since your traffic has to travel a little (or a lot) more, not to mention that your traffic will increase. However, it does not hurt to try. You can host a LAN game on a VPN yourself if you can share it. Even try to host a game yourself without a VPN. :)

I don`t know anything about the console, but, in generally, as for me, they had no effect, my Wi-Fi was too crippled. Try to read about them.

Well, I really *don`t* think that pinging someone in Turkey would give me 40-50.
Pinging your TURKCELL ISP.
