Anybody got steam to run on pclinuxos?
i came across this thread: http://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/18jmmo/i_finally_got_steam_running_on_debian_testing/c8fcwhg
followed it and fumble my way into getting steam to run on my 32 bit pclinuxos system
here is how the client look like on my system: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B8juRKTjN4Q9TXYwM09DOUVVazg/edit?usp=sharing
Starting the client says i am missing the following packages but it seem to start without them,it probably doesnt find them because their names are different in our system or something.The only package we dont have is the jockey-common one.
Package jockey-common needs to be installed
Package python-apt needs to be installed
Package zenity 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
Havent tried to play anything yet
It seem to do what netflix does,the client you download from their website is some sort of an online installer,when you run it,it download the "real package" to "/home/<user>/.steam/root/XYZ12_32/" and some support libraries go in "/home/<user>/.local/share/Steam/XYZ12_32/steam-runtime" where XYZ is the name of the other distro.
The package seem to be self contained and hence at the first glance,it should be possible to have it without putting the entire system in danger.
