Steam installation?

When I go to install the new open steam linux beta I get " error, dependency not satisfiable:multiarch support" and it says >=2.15-0ubuntu10.2 which i assume means i need to be on ubuntu 10.2 or later. What i am asking is there a way to forgo the dependency check and install it anyway? Or if I want native steam on linux will I have to switch to Ubunutu eventually sad ?

Re: Steam installation?

Well if it complains about multiarch, you want first to install i386.

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update

I tried it again and this is what I got at the end

Re: Steam installation?

^ That's been happening a lot lately; it has to do with Debian pruning out packages that aren't quite ready for Stable.  (In particular, minitube has disappeared from the Wheezy repo, just like it disappeared from Squeeze shortly before that went Stable.)  If you don't like the weather in Testing during the freeze, wait a few minutes; it will change. monkey

Re: Steam installation?

turns out the new steam beta client requires libc6 2.15 and #! uses 2.13 or something like that so i just installed it through wine, since for some reason winetricks was giving me a checksum error on the msi file sad Either way it works ok i suppose.

Re: Steam installation?

Yes, if you want native Steam you'll have to run something newer with libc6 > 2.15. Ubuntu, Arch, Slackware all have it, Manjaro even comes with the steam client pre-installed.
If you want to stick with Debian you'll have to wait until after the release of Wheezy I suppose, when the testing and unstable repos start rolling again.
Out of interest: How's it doing in Wine? I would imagine the overhead is pretty heavy but probably ok for 10-15 yo games like Half-life.

Re: Steam installation?

Ya on my laptop I tested vvv and far cry in steam on wine and vvv ran great but far cry did not run well at all Lol but that could have been the integrated graphics. On my desktop I may install fuduntu to try it out since steam is installed by default even.

Linux _is_ user-friendly. It is not ignorant-friendly or idiot-friendly.
