Re: steamcmd on arm
Follow-up to myself about:
Running steamcmd:i386 on ARM with qemu-user-static gives a segfault,
but qemu-user works ! \o/
If there's an other computer running Steam on the LAN;
the data seams to be copied from there ultra-fast.
Where should this be properly documented ?
Maybe in some of in steamcmd's man page;
but then all i386-only packages could be documented this way;
& man-page are normally about using software; not installing it.
I understand a call to "dpkg --add-architecure" must always
be done manually by the administrator; this isn't something
that can be done from an other package post-inst.
Here are the steps needed to get this working:
One need to copy .steam/config/loginusers.vdf to the ARM host
to trick Game-Data-Packager to enable Steam integration;
$ sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install qemu-user qemu-user-binfmt steamcmd:i386
The following additional packages will be installed:
gcc-5-base:i386 libc6:i386 libc6-i686:i386 libgcc1:i386 libstdc++6:i386
