I have Steam running just fine on FatDog64 6.0.1.
I am wondering how much demand there is for a package. Let me know if you want one and which puppy version you are using.

PostPosted: Sat 16 Feb 2013, 23:19    Post subject: steam on dPup 3.6.2.1  

I tried installing the 'official' steam for linux on my dPup 3.6.2.1 and when I try running it, all I see is a quick flash of an outline of a box before it disappears.

I have a few Second Life (VR Worlds) clients running without problems using the NVidia 3.10 drivers, so I'm assuming the graphics isn't the problem.

According to ssanubis some lines need commenting out in a script in /usr/bin

hi satori,

you will need to install zenity, or possibly you may get away with a symlink to yad called zenity in /usr/bin.

as well as what darkcity says above, you will need to open /usr/bin/steam as text and comment out lines where it warns about running as root (it's 136 - 139 on mine)
Code:
# Don't allow running as root
#if [ "$(id -u)" == "0" ]; then
#   show_message --error $"Cannot run as root user"
#   exit 1
#fi

Nope... still no go.

Installed zenity and commented out the root check but the popup box just flashes by with no error msgs.

And the newly released steam script does not match the one in the mentioned forums.

hi satori,

i got this error message when trying steam on your dpup
Code:
/usr/lib/steam/bootstraplinux_ubuntu12_32.tar/ubuntu12_32/steam: /lib/libpthread.so.0: version `GLIBC_2.12' not found (required by /usr/lib/steam/bootstraplinux_ubuntu12_32.tar/ubuntu12_32/steam)


i don't know a way to solve this, you could ask pemasu in the dpup thread

may need some linking to your version of glibc

what happens if with the command

ldd --version

people can make this page better by sharing which glibc version is on their Puppy

Slashdot reported on someone who provided a repackage of Steam4Linux so that it includes the required glibc 2.15 libs.

Trying it now...

I'm on Precise 5.4, and the zenity + comment out trick worked for me. I also installed all the packages the pop-up window said I needed to add. Steam looks gnarly, with grey bars blocking out a lot of the text and almost no images currently working, but several of the games launch and play very smoothly.

Fatdog 6.2 has been released and it's great. I wonder if you can build a package for it. Thanks

Sorry about taking so long to respond. Do you still need it for 6.2?
