I could just package a script that a user runs, but that's not as nice.
http://repo.steampowered.com/steam/pool/steam/s/steam/steam_1.0.0.36.tar.gz

I've extracted that, ran it solo on Fedora. I doubt Debian would have issues, as long as the supported libs can be pulled. So take that, make a binary package, should work as long as you get all the requirements. That is where I was going, the .deb has the same stuff as before I found that I was doing the same thing in Fedora. Fedora has a unofficial Steam repo but it had been slow at times, during those times Steam would complain about an update. I disliked the complaint, so I extracted the .deb from ubuntu and moved it to another folder. Eventually I found that, so now if I want the latest I just extract the tar to my spare (/mnt/spare/steam) and system link it to /usr/bin/steam (obviously the binary file), everything runs fine and dandy. The only issue thus far has been the systray icon is broke. But that issue fell under the actual packages from the Fedora repo, somebody botched something and I'm too lazy to fix it. the icon is their, just as a blank icon. =S

Did that and it installs fine (after some minor control file editing), but I still need to get a newer version of libc6. At the moment I just get a bunch of
"GLIBC_2.15 not found errors" since it's only 2.13 in testing.

EDIT:
Grabbed it from experimental:
http://packages.debian.org/experimental/libc6

Steam is currently working. Going to do some serious testing before I push an experimental lib into my repo though....

That's what I ment about making sure the proper libs requirements are done. I guess I should have asked what you are building your base distro off of, I only assumed you would pull packages from testing/unstable and bring them over as a part of your repository. My bad, glad to see it's worked out now. =)

Ehh, I'm thinking of re-doing my whole OS setup anyway. Right now I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on a Seagate 750GB HD as my main OS, Windows Server 2008 R2 on an old Maxtor 320GB HD and Linux on an external 80GB HD. Why? Just to see if I can and because, apparently, I can. I may actually put CentOS on the 320 and try to put WindowsXP x64 on the external.

I love challenges. Maybe I'll go with Windows 2000................................

I DID find the culprit. In the Nvidia settings.......FXAA......I turned it off and Cairo-Dock looks fine.

Yup, thanks for the suggestion, a lot better then what I was trying before. I've installed a couple games and some various other applications on the test machine with this new .deb and everything appears to be fine so far. I think I'm just going to wait through the next couple batches of updates and see if anything breaks, and if not push to my testing repo. thumb.gif

Try adding your user to the video group. I had a similar problem with the Nvidia driver

Thank you. I think that actually solved it! smile.gif +REP

Now, I only need to be able to access my other hard disks without needing to type in my root password. Is there a convinent group for that too? I tried "disk" but it didn't work.

Generally you don't have to be too picky about stuff from Testing/Sid. The only one that will be noticeably more unstable than distributions that are "bleeding edge" or close to, is experimental. I think it has to do with all the Debian patches applied to software, it makes things work well but doesn't always run smooth when a person gets pure code (so to speak). That is my experience with Debian, which has been a solid long run too (ran it for ages). With that, since you did pull from experimental, you might want to keep an eye like you plan.

Anyways, if I get back into Debian I might have to pump out some debs for ya. i tend to do custom stuff for my self, quite often, even thought about making my own repo. My biggest issue is kernels and a few other tid bits, which usually end up in me building my own stuff. Anyways, need any help just let me know I've used debian for a very very long time. =P I remember using potato and the release of woody, only recently have I jumped to Fedora. Which I find just as good. GL!

To access the disks, being in the disk group is enough. However, to mount a filesystem (using the mount command) requires root privileges because you can do some very bad things with it. If you only want to use a filesystem, and you can find a driver for it written against FUSE (instead of being inside the kernel), you should be able to mount it afaik.

Thanks. If you ever have some stuff put together that you'd like to share with the rest of the world, I have no problem pushing it into one of my repositories for you. thumb.gif
Now I just need to get the Netflix package working and I'd be pretty content for now. I tried it out a couple weeks ago on Debian and had a lot of issues, I can't even get it to install correctly from what I've been reading, let alone seeing it actually run. But this can wait for another weekend. I've already pushed well over 130 packages in the last two days, I think that's enough for now tongue.gif

Can't I give myself privileges to just mount a few storage drives? It's annoying to have to mount it with root before starting to watch a film in XBMC, or play a game in Steam.
