Valve Steam on Porteus

Post#1 by ztealmax » 03 Feb 2014, 12:47

Hi ive downloaded Porteus 3.0
and steam_latest.deb and converted it to porteus package
did a installation and all worked great
Im running porteus with AMD drivers
ok now started steam it starts up with following message: OpenGL GLX context is not using direct rendering, which may couse performance problems
Guess something is missing?
I can play Counter-Strike 1.6 with out OpenGL GLX direct rendering but thats about it.

So my question is what is missing? Mesa drivers?

Any suggestion would be great

GLXINFO

Code: Select all

glxinfo
name of display: :0.0
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast
libGL error: Try again with LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose for more details.
display: :0  screen: 0
direct rendering: No (If you want to find out why, try setting LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose)

Did you start the program with: LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose?

I also suggest you open google and copy and paste that error message in. There are tons of hits and your answer most probably has already been posted. For example if you are on 64bit you may well need the 32bit compat libraries.

Hia brokenman: yes i have the 32-bit libs needed, but as far as i have figured out, i think steam installs something that alter the amd drivers or how they behave, ill keep you posted when i get a answer
and yes ive googled it ;)

looks like the issue we had before and i still dont know wtf is causing it:
viewtopic.php?f=81&t=2741#p19157

please let me know if you find which module/other action does opengl switch from catalyst to mesa.
thanks

Yea what i can see so far is that steam installs allready installed files that overides catalyst driver allready installed, perhaps maybe if we mod the steam script not to
install mesa etc it could work

think perhaps file we should concentrate on is: steamdeps.sh

I have Porteus-KDE4-v2.1-x86_64 with Steam.
Everything worked fine on Nvidia. At least Left4Dead 2 worked Ok.
As far as I know all I've done is
1) Created symlink libnotify.so.1 > libnotify.so.4.0.0
2) Added zenity-2.30.0-x86_64-1gsb.xzm
2) deb2xzm steam_latest.deb steam_latest.xzm
4) Edited start script to allow root user to launch it.
3) Made xzm with directories /root/.local/share/Steam and /root/.steam

Oh... And I've added 32 bit drivers (directory /usr/lib/* ) from nVidia-319.32-porteus-v2.1-i486-1ftm.xzm to nVidia-319.32-porteus-v2.1-x86_64-1fmt.xzm

One final note:
Probably the way I installed steam was far from great since it downloaded and installed all dependencies inside "root/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/" (that's why there's 800+Mb of data there) and it's possible to use stand-alone modules instead, but I didn't have much time at that moment and it worked fine, so I didn't bother anymore. But since this is a module, it won't update with new versions of steam later. ;)

Thanx i will give it a try again

could you possible share the modules you made of steam?

now trying to locate zenity-2.30.0-x86_64-1gsb.xzm
and figure out symlink etc ;)

This works on Porteus 2.1 x86_64 kde4 (checked today on Half-Life 2 and deleted private info) but doesn't work on 3.0rc2.
I can also add edited nVidia driver module merged with x86 one but it seems you use ATi, so you won't need it.

BTW, Fanthom, did you add x86 libs to x86_64 drivers for 3.0? I just checked and it seems so...
And I still can't activate modules inside "/media/SP UFD U2/..."

yes - 64bit nVidia installer has an option to include 32bit libs and i'm using this option when creating module. however - one user reported that some bits are still missing so would be good if someone could verify that.

And I still can't activate modules inside "/media/SP UFD U2/..."
activate wont support whitespaces as it breaks activation of multiple modules at once.
btw: in 3.0 you wont get anything mounted under '/media/name' cause we have a wrapper which puts everything under /mnt/sdXY so this problem should be gone. this wrapper is already in 2.1 (bit buggy comparing to 3.0) so you should have it under /mnt even right now.

I'll try to test drivers whenever I got steam (or wine) working on 3.0rc2.
And indeed, 2.1 didn't use "/media" but 3.0rc2 uses it for Porteus removable drive with copy2ram.

EDIT: Changed symlink /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 to point to /usr/lib/libGL.so.1.2 instead of /usr/lib/libGL.so.319.76 and steam works on 3.0rc2 x86_64 kde4. At least it started to update instead of segafulting...
But got warning: "OpenGL GLX context is not using direct rendering..."

Replaced "/usr/lib" with one from 32 bit driver (only files, not subdirectories) with no effect
Copied entire "/usr/lib" (with subdirectories) from 32bit drivers to 64 bit ones and everything works. =)
So only subdirectories were missing from /usr/lib/ (please forget about symlink, it wasn't source of the problem and was overwritten with original link shortly after)

Playing HL2 now with my steam modules, edited nVidia drivers and clean Porteus 3.0rc2 x86_64 kde4

2.1 didn't use "/media" but 3.0rc2 uses it for Porteus removable drive with copy2ram.
is this happening on KDE4?

ok - this is confirming what we discovered previously. will fix 64bit nVidia drivers for 3.0 final.
