So I take it that you read through the Steam troubleshooting part of the wiki, most especially where it states that a game can crash and the possible considerations for it.
I can’t test this for you of course.
Only you can so I"m assuming you’ve done that.
What is your file partition?
Run steam from a terminal.
Select to play your game and paste me the output on a pastebin.
I believe that what @joekamprad meant by Rufus having a dd modus is that this application for Windows has the same or similar operational pattern that
man ddif you ever have opportunity,
@joekamprad will have to correct me if I’m wrong on guessing what he meant, though. Though I’m fairly certain this is what he meant
by the way, nouveau is not what you are wanting as this error is telling you that it can’t handle this install set up using this driver.
have you tried to boot it with the “nomodeset” kernel parameter?
press “e” to edit the kernel line, add “nomodeset” at the end and press <Ctrl>+x to boot
you can try this by hitting the ESC button.
I hope it works. Because if it does not, I have no other ideas to help. Sorry.
so you might want to check
journalctl. perhaps try filtering it with
so I don’t know if your game is a steam game or not but if you look at
journalctl | grep steamand see what is there.
It’s just a guess, though.
There are probably alternate ways, though.
but you can also check
can also try to see if anything is in
have you looked at the arch wiki?
it’s got to be one of the first places you would want to have a look at:
So we don’t really have a whole lot of information to go by.
You don’t mention anything about how it does not go any further.
What do you mean?
So what are the graphic considerations for this game?
One of the 1st things to consider if you’ve got all the necessary requirements.
have a look at the Stream requirements page first
Let us know.
I have to agree with what @axioma said regarding that we do not always have answers.
Here’s a case in point.
At one time somewhere in this forum, someone came and asked a question.
I tried to help; however, the OP got overly anxious and upset with the fact that his question to his problem wasn’t answered ‘fast enough’.
Well, truth be told, I, like pretty much everyone here, volunteers their time.
I don’t get paid to be here.
Just like yourself and others here, I also have a life.
I asked said OP to accept the fact that we’re all volunteers here and not be overly anxious with the fact that an answer wasn’t given quickly enough to his/her satisfaction.
Finally he/she/it calmed down a bit.
If memory serves me correctly, I was one of the few person’s that tried to help (unfortunately, the OP didn’t get his/her/it’s problem resolved satisfactorily).
Finally, in an act of defiance and complete “pissed - offed’ness” the OP and someone else came to that thread and said they got no help at all.
Blamed me and others in that thread, including pretty much the whole board that they got no help (or something akin to that).
If there isn’t an answer to your post (sometimes you’ll also see other posts that remain unanswered as well), it’s probably because some of us are eating, paying bills, doing work, driving kids from school, going to appointments, etc…in other words, we’re living our lives.
We not on this board 24/7.
And I think that at times, simple things like that are forgotten by new users.
They expect an answer ‘right away!’
So if you do post, please bear in mind that we can try to help, you may or may not get an answer, and if the answer doesn’t help, it’s the fault of our knowledge base.
Not of us ‘per se’.
In other words, we may not know everything but we’ll try.
But please don’t blame us ‘per se’ or the board / community as a whole.
And Happy Antergos!!
PS: I had to move this topic to a forum area more suitable for this discussion to take place.
… uninstalling the nvidia drivers and switching to open source drivers gives me the same problems
Give me a day or so and see what I can come up with.
I’m also hopeful that someone else here on the board can jump in and help out if at all possible.
The more, the merrier :Der
EDIT: I have some suggestion on determining what might be going on wrong.
There is an application called
You would run the application as so:
gdb steamUse a pastebin to post the output.
You can also use
strace. To use it correctly, you’d do:
strace eopen steam
- e for expression
- o for finding the file
- p for finding the pid of steam
Question: Your not running steam via terminal as root are you? sorry, but I do want to ask. Regular user, yes?
Also, could you please have a quick look at the Steam trouble shooting line on the Arch Wiki?
steam trouble shooting
i’m having a second look at your output. It states “invalid Window parameter“
I’m also wondering that perhaps you don’t have all of the required lib files.
Just some ideas that I”ve thought of in the last little while to help with some further ideas that we could both come up with.
Some other ideas is the firewall.
Do you have ufw configured. It states in the Wiki that some app’s API’s cant connect to the server if ports aren’t properly open.
Hello and terribly sorry for the late reply.
I haven’t really found much to help solve this issue.
Question: I don’t know if this will work, but are you able to check to see if you have
I take it that because Steam in crashing upon start up, are you checking ``remember username and password’? If you are, could you opt for this particular instance to not select to remember it? It’s just so that it doesn’t create a config file, that’s all.
Also, could you have a look at this link, please link text
I’ m not 100 percent sure if anything there will help you but it’s at least something to help. It’s related to a language issue. I’m not sure how that works, but would you be interested in looking into it?
EDIT: I have an idea.
- Consider installing Steam under the open source driver.
- Then install the proprietary drivers.
I understand that you’ve uninstalled / re-installed previously, but before you go ahead with the above idea, could you tell me if you’ve re-installed in that order previously?
