Hi Everyone,

I have Sparky Linux Game Over Edition installed on a VirtualBox VM. Whenever I try and launch steam I get the error below and it does not launch correctly. Other than this everything is going well and I have to admit that I am really impressed with what seems to be an awsome OS :D

Running Steam on sparky 4 32-bit
STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically
Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(0)
pci id for fd 7: 80ee:beef, driver (null)
libGL error: core dri or dri2 extension not found
libGL error: failed to load driver: vboxvideo
libGL error: unable to load driver:
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast

Any help on this would be hugely appreciated.

Many thanks

Hi pavroo,

Thank you for the suggestion. Unfortunately I do not seem to have the folder mentioned in the other post (/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/). I have searched around for an appropriate alternative folder where these files may be n my system, but unfortunately I have not found them anywhere.

If you could suggest any other way to troubleshoot this it would be great.

Many thanks :)
