The link to the Ubuntu Glibc in that install script seems to be out of date and no longer available, so I commented out the relevant lines and used this version instead, from here. I extracted the deb archive and copied all the files in the 'lib/i386-linux-gnu' directory into '~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32', and now I'm able to run steam. [...]?
I posted too soon. It turns out that though I could run Steam, I couldn't run any games and was still getting the missing GLIBC error.
I deleted everything and used GhostSquad57's Re-write of Valve's deb package, and everything just worked.
So to summarise installing Steam in Waldorf 64-bit (not considering GPU drivers which I expect I'll need to do next if the open source ATI driver, which I believe is installed by default in Waldorf(?), doesn't give good enough performance):
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install realpath libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 libcurl3-gnutls:i386 libogg0:i386 libpixman-1-0:i386 libsdl1.2debian:i386 libtheora0:i386 libvorbis0a:i386 libvorbisenc2:i386 libvorbisfile3:i386 libasound2:i386 libc6:i386 libcairo2:i386 libcups2:i386 libdbus-1-3:i386 libfontconfig1:i386 libfreetype6:i386 libgcc1:i386 libgcrypt11:i386 libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0:i386 libglib2.0-0:i386 libgtk2.0-0:i386 libnspr4:i386 libnss3:i386 libopenal1:i386 libpango1.0-0:i386 libpng12-0:i386 libpulse0:i386 libstdc++6:i386 libx11-6:i386 libxext6:i386 libxfixes3:i386 libxi6:i386 libxrandr2:i386 libxrender1:i386 zlib1g:i386

Hey all, I am a new user after many years away from anything linux, and I am pretty noobish. I installed steam on a fresh install of Waldorf on AMD64. I used the steps presented here and GhostSquad57's deb and it started up flawlessly. However, I was having issues actually getting 3D games to run so I installed my proprietary fglrx drivers. That too, worked without a hitch, (truly shocking me) but now steam is broken. When I attempt to run steam I now get:
Error: You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run: libGL.so.1 /home/username/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 42: 4072 Segmentation fault zenity "$style" --text="$*" 2> /dev/null
Steam will in fact even launch a graphical error box telling me "Fatal Error: Failed to load steamui.so" I am assuming that installing my proprietary 64bit drivers has made it so steam has no 32 bit drivers up to rely on. I don't mind experimenting a bit, but I am not too confident in my Linux abilities when it comes to working with drivers, so I figured I would come here to ask what my next steps should be. I would be happy to provide any additional info people may need, and many thanks in advance.
sudo apt-get install lib<whatever>:i386
See if that helps with Steam. Steam relies on 32 bit libs.
Okay, I installed the libgl1-fglrx-glx:i386 and now steam will run, but it warns me that direct rendering isn't enabled (It is, I checked glxinfo) and attempting to run any game either seg-faults (Metro Last Light), gives a gray screen but plays audio (Aquaria) or in half-life 2's case throws this Error: "Could not find required OpenGL entry point 'glGetError'! Either your video card is unsupported, or your OpenGL driver needs to be updated."
I tried creating a symbolic link between steam's bin folder and the required libraries as some suggested on other sites before I reinstalled, but that failed to work.
Hmm...try uninstalling the amd64 glx libs and run it again. Or, optionally you could launch steam with
or something to that effect.
That worked like a dream, just loaded up HL2 and Metro to test it out. Many thanks for your help!
I tried what you said and its not working. When I try to "unarch it" I get this.
"tar (child): gist4231563-45bbf171953630f9b11acec71b8cc6fa70f0abe0.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now"
What do I do? I didn't find a "what to do if this happens" section of your post.
Thanks in advance.
