Hello everyone,

I hope here's the right place to post the issues I am currently having with Wine. I' aware that there's a native version of Steam for Linux out in the wild, but, as the major part of my games in my (pretty small) Steam library only runs on Windows, there doesn't seem to be a way around using stuff like wine - yet I'm probably a total Gentoo greenhorn (but hey, after all it's still possible to learn :D).

What I've run into: Everytime I try to launch Steam (via wine), it crashes. Not immediately, meaning I am still able to login, but in the end, the main window does not appear. Instead, this gets pops up in my terminal window:
Inconsistency detected by dl-close.c: 764: _dl_close: Assertion `map->l_init_called' failed!

So I guess there's something wrong going on in connection with glibc?

So far, I am using the ~amd64 Gentoo ebuild (also mesa, xorg are ~amd64 + abi_x86_32 on my system, as I've read that the x86 baselibs seem to be pretty outdated sometimes). Oh yeah, and the glibc's ~amd64, too. That fixed an issue I've had earlier.

Does anyone know what's going on there and what's causing this conflict? Because currently I'm pretty clueless (I already tried re-emerging glibc, wine and a few other packages, sadly with no luck).
Funnily enough, I'm also using Gentoo on another machine which doesn't seem to have this kind of problem.

Many thanks in advance!
