Hi,

I'm using steam streaming client for the games which do not run under linux, and everytime I start it I get these messages:


Code:
libva info: VA-API version 0.35.1
libva info: va_getDriverName() returns 0
libva info: Trying to open /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/dri/nvidia_drv_video.so
libva info: va_openDriver() returns -1
Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(streaming_client)/version(1.0)
libva info: VA-API version 0.35.1
libva info: va_getDriverName() returns 0
libva info: Trying to open /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/dri/nvidia_drv_video.so
libva info: va_openDriver() returns -1


I guess this means, my video decoding is handled by the cpu, and not the gpu. So far lags only happen rarely, but I guess its because of that.

I have the nvidia_drv_video.so, but in a different location. Can I tell steam to search for it somewhere else or should I try to just create an symlink?

I do not use an chroot or anything special for steam.

Thanks for help!

It's been quiet here for a while, so I figured it's time to make some noise, as I'm almost certain this will be of interest to some:

2017-12-07 at steamcommunity.com/linux - Platform-specific wishlisting

In short, there is a platform-specific wishlisting section the game developers will see, and as a user, we can make a difference by filtering games for Linux only in our Store Settings, and adding a title into our wishlist.

Quite a simple little thing to make things stand out a bit more, I maybe guess. :]

How much this will affect anything, we can only guess, but I know I added some items back to my wishlist after setting the filter (and re-added others for good measure).
