Hey, in order to avoid a lot of hassel I have decided (maybe rather foolishly) to install steam in a 32bit chroot. Left 4 Dead 2 starts up but it has some interface lag and starting to play a game is just pointless - the Steam client also experiences this lag too. It feels rather sluggish and is almost unusable.

I folowed the Wiki here: http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Steam#32-bit_chroot_on_amd64

Some system info:
Linux gentoo-desktop 3.10.7-gentoo-r1 #1 SMP Sat Sep 28 03:03:28 BST 2013 x86_64 AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 960T Processor AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux
x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-325.15 (i.e. ~amd64)

Info from inside the chroot:
$DISPLAY = :0
Chroot FS (without mounts): http://bpaste.net/show/137116/
direct rendering: Yes

Here is the script I am using to launch Steam:
Code:

#!/bin/bash

CHROOT_DIR=/usr/local/steam32

mount --rbind /dev $CHROOT_DIR/dev
mount --rbind /sys $CHROOT_DIR/sys
mount --rbind /tmp $CHROOT_DIR/tmp
mount -t proc none $CHROOT_DIR/proc
xhost local:root && \

[ ! -f $CHROOT_DIR/var/run/dbus.pid ] && chroot $CHROOT_DIR dbus-launch --system
chroot $CHROOT_DIR su steam -c "dbus-launch steam"

umount -l $CHROOT_DIR/dev
umount -l $CHROOT_DIR/sys
umount -l $CHROOT_DIR/proc


Here is stdout from running the script, starting the game, and exiting out of Steam completely. There are some OpenGL warnings - probably a major indicator. ;)

It works okay for me in a chroot, on a Radeon 5450 and open drivers.

The "direct rendering: yes" tells us nothing. Have you checked OpenGL actually works in other programs and isn't just using software rendering?

A bit late, but since you followed the wiki and you're using the closed source drivers, did you emerge the nvidia-drivers in the chroot aswell? They should be the same version as the one on your system only 32bit and compiled against the same kernel (just a 32bit version). Don't forget to change eselet opengl to nvidia else you'll just get a black screen when starting games (I'm using ati, so am not 100% this is needed for nvidia but I'd reckon it is). The lag should have been due to software rendering since it didn't have the driver, same with the opengl extension errors.

Just have to ask: is there a reason that you're not using a miltilib profile and the win32 use flag?

I remember being in a similar situation for a while, it's completely unnessessary to run it in a chroot, but I can't remember all the steps I went through to make it work.

I just followed the steam gentoo wiki aswell; with a 32bit chroot on a 64 bit system. Unfortunatly it doesn't play nice with the fglrx drivers does it? I even installed the fglrx drivers into the chroot, but until i eselect opgengl set ati it runs on the software renderer (and refuses to start any game). When setting the ati driver, it segfaults early on.

I tried running steam on my 64bit gentoo nativily from the overlay, but that failed badly as well, hence the 32bit chroot.

So can steam work on a 64bit system with fglrx drivers? Do we have a workable howto for that somewhere?

It works just fine for me on 64bit with emulation libraries aswell as in 32bit chroom. The only problem I have in chroot is that steam still detects a 64bit environment and games that have a 64bit version don't run in the 32 bit chroot unless I swap the two binaries. Trying to figure out how steam detects this atm so I can force it to run in 32bit mode.
