    304 or 310... Is one more stable than the other or does it matter?
    304.64 As it's been most tested with steam.

    3.10 must be faster? Still need to install, any advice?

    Re: STEAM on Linux BETA

    What I'm wondering is: do we get any say in where Steam is installing games? I have a small hard drive in my linux computer now. I'd be happy to get another 1TB drive but I dont feel like reinstalling. I was wondering if I could add a new drive "after the fact" and have games installed there.

    I think in the steam folder in your home.

    So, you could cut/paste the steam folder to your other hard drive; and then make the current steam folder (in your home) to point to the other folder (I mean, right click on the newly moved steam folder, select Make Link, then rename this link and move it to your home folder).

    ... or just set the mount point on your new partition to the steam folder.
    Life's a pitch. And then you sing!

    Nice to see 2 of my previously purchased games on Windows, have been ported to Linux. Unfortunately they don't load after i download..

    The client and the "big picture" are working fine on Kubuntu 12.10 amd64 ;D

    Its a win for all us users, even if the client is the only thing working, with a seeming full client and browsable store, while we all bite our lips wanting ports.

    Nvidia install was nasty.
    Tried first a script that didn't work...
    Found that it only needs kernel headers to be installed before downloading from Nvidia.-
    Secondly had to:

    error while loading shared libraries: libGL.so.1: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64

    Or, instead of editing the file ld.so.conf directly, create a file called local.conf in the subdirectory /etc/ld.so.conf.d containing just the line /usr/local/lib. That is,

    Contents of /etc/ld.so.conf.d/local.conf:

    /usr/lib32

    Then run the sudo ldconfig command.
    That worked but hey what year is it? 1991? Probably it would get better by sticking to the LSB...

    Also the 310.14 seem slower with other games but don't know how to revert to 304 after installing from Nvidia, will wait for the next nvidia update.

    Now I move to Steam...curious about left2dead but only find Serious Sam3 and Team Fortress 2? Why?
    Thanks
