Re: Steam on Debian Wheezy 64bit (and probably 32bit too!)

Installing bootstrap /home/crash/.local/share/Steam/bootstrap.tar.xz
/home/crash/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam: /lib/i386-linux-gnu/i686/cmov/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.15' not found (required by /home/crash/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam)

It seems the standard install of CrunchBang has GLIBC 2.13, but 2.15 is required. Did you upgrade it by way of adding a repository?

Re: Steam on Debian Wheezy 64bit (and probably 32bit too!)

I'm running waldof, and it's now downloading the Steam client. I had the remains of a previous install attempt borking up the new one. Once I purged the old files, it cleared up the error. Many thanks!

Re: Steam on Debian Wheezy 64bit (and probably 32bit too!)

As a footnote to my install, Steam is up and running perfectly, but for the fact I can't use the client window to browse games; it gives an error that I need a newer version of Flash. Been there, done that and it's not a big enough problem to risk hosing up my system (again) trying to get a compatible version. I can browse Steam fine directly from IceWeasel, so this is a minor glitch. I look forward to the day when Flash dies the final death.

Re: Steam on Debian Wheezy 64bit (and probably 32bit too!)

Awesome, the final bug goes down! It's great that this can be done through the plugin directory, I didn't know that. I wasn't about to try messing with the main Flash plugin, I've spent a few hours in the past cleaning up the mess that can cause. Thanks again.

/home/<your user name>/.local/share/Steam/steam_on_debian.sh

If that doesn't work, try "whereis steam" to see what the path is. It looks like steam doesn't necessarily install in the normal path, that's why you have to use the whole path in the menu.

Re: Steam on Debian Wheezy 64bit (and probably 32bit too!)

I have been having some problems with this, whenever I try to run:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

I get an error saying dpkg unknown option --add-architecture
And also when I follow the rest of the steps and run steam it says

Package jockey-common needs to be installed
Package xterm needs to be installed
Package libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 needs to be installed
Package libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 needs to be installed
Package libc6:i386 needs to be installed
Steam needs to install these additional packages: 
	jockey-common, xterm, libgl1-mesa-dri:i386, libgl1-mesa-glx:i386, libc6:i386
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package jockey-common
E: Unable to locate package libgl1-mesa-dri:i386
E: Unable to locate package libgl1-mesa-glx:i386
E: Unable to locate package libc6:i386
Press return to continue: 

Can anyone point me in the right direction? I think I am making a stupid mistake.

Lol adding steam to the openbox menu was so easy!  Found the steam shortcut with the file manager checked out the properties and copy and pasted the execution path it gave.. Boom! Done!  Worked for adding the windows and linux client of steam.  *facepalm*

Thanks for the workaround. Steam is running without any problems under waldorf.

Re: Steam on Debian Wheezy 64bit (and probably 32bit too!)

I've been trying to install steam following OP's guidelines. When I try to run steam.sh or steam_on_debian.sh I get prompted with the following error:

/home/wallen/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 704: 32088 Segmentation fault      $STEAM_DEBUGGER "$STEAMROOT/$PLATFORM/$STEAMEXE" "$@"
Error: Couldn't start bootstrap and couldn't reinstall from /usr/lib/steam/bootstraplinux_ubuntu12_32.tar.xz.  Please contact technical support.

Has anyone ever had this? I am running waldorf 64 bit.

i completed the install and steam runs, but the only error i came across is this one when trying to run tf2.

Could not find required OpenGL entry point 'glGetError'! Either your video card is unsupported or your OpenGL driver needs to be updated.

Re: Steam on Debian Wheezy 64bit (and probably 32bit too!)

I haven't been able to get steam to run since I'm unable to install the nvidia OpenGL Mesa libraries for i386 (I'm using a 660Ti).  I'm also using the current proprietary drivers (313.26).

When I try and run

sudo apt-get install libgl1-nvidia-glx:i386

it hangs when the "nvidia-installation-cleanup" runs, and I'm forced to kill the process.

I'm actually running VSIDO as Crunchbang was giving me fits.  I don't think VSIDO is the culprit, as it's simply based off of Debian Sid and the Experimental repos.
