Steam games have suddenly stopped working for me. I haven't changed anything out side of system updates and steam updates. I am using STEAM_RUNTIME=1 and the application itself is loading as usual, but when I click to play a game it just tries to launch for a second then returns the play button.

Code:

Update: It looks like glibc is what is causing this problem when compiled with -ftree-vectorize -ftree-slp-vectorize

Code:

I'm having the same problem, could you elaborate on your solution and what steps you took to troubleshoot/figure out the problem? Thanks!

The only meaningful error messages I got were in dmsg and said
Code:

I started looking at my cflags and set them to something less optimization happy and things started working. I should also not that I am using STEAM_RUNTIME=1.

Interesting, my dmesg isn't yelling anything at me. I will try changing my CFLAGS as well? I don't have -ftree-vectorize enabled, but -O2 does enable -ftree-slp-vectorize (according to https://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc/Optimize-Options.html).

-ftree-slp-vectorize def caused problems with glibc for me, but I would get a segfault with dmegs after I tried to launch a game.

Hmmm. Maybe we're actually having different issues, but Steam's giving the same (generic?) messages.

That could be. Ghett, you haven't shown your error message, so we cannot determine if it is related at all.

Edit: solved, just a silly mount option mistake. https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-8685839.html#8685839

Yep. Here's the stuff steam spits out at me when launched from a terminal, it's identical. My games also don't launch at all and silently error out. I think the 2 errors don't have any relation? There are some really old threads out there that say disabling the in-game overlay solves this issue, but the "gameoverlayrender.so from LD_PRELOAD..." error shows regardless of that setting. This is the error for a game running on Proton, though I can launch that game if I open it with Wine directly. I've tried a different Proton version and it didn't work either. STEAM_RUNTIME=1 hasn't done anything, and my steam-launcher has the steamruntime USE flag enabled (though I can try w/out in a bit).

Code:

Edit: I'm waiting for a Linux native Steam game to update, then I can see if that errs as well.

Thank you! I started to run into this issue recently and only when I recompiled glibc and harfbuzz with minimal cflags, did games start launching again.
Code:

CFLAGS="-march=skylake -O2 -pipe"
CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"
LDFLAGS="${LDFLAGS} -Wl,--hash-style=gnu"

It's an issue with gcc-12 glibc and steam
It's reported here https://github.com/ValveSoftware/steam-for-linux/issues/8302

As far as I'm aware, the -ftree-vectorize issue shouldn't be an issue if glibc was built with USE=strack-realign (default on relevant profiles), or at least it's what a user reported when they were having gcc-12 issues, possible(?) reports weren't entirely accurate albeit stack-realign is useful with steam either way.

That USE didn't exist back when this thread was made though, so issues were expected back then.
