[SOLVED] steam requiring libsystemd.so.0

Hello, my steam complained today about a missing libsystemd.so.0 in 32 bits mode. Am I missing some compability layer?

Is libelogind installed? It provides libsystemd.so for the idiotic apps hardlinked against it.

[EDIT] My bad, steam is 32bit, we need a lib32-libelogind.

Does that work for multilib though? I don't use steam so I'm not sure but it might be specifically looking for the 32bit library.

It is looking specifically for the 32 bit version of libsystemd.so.0 I thought I mentioned that. But apparently not. is there a package named lib32-libelogind. I'll check if it's installed.
Edit: I checked there is no lib32-libelogind. Not in lib32 nor in lib32-gremlins.

Yeah it doesn't exist. We never had a need for it before, but looks like there is one now. I wonder how on earth this ended up as a dependency...

Actually some devs in IRC said they use steam just fine. Are you 100% sure you have every required package installed from the Artix lib32 repo?

Well so I disabled multilib and did an pacman -Scc and pacman -Syyuu and no package was reinstalled or downgraded so I am pretty sure. Also steam is telling me
You are missing the following 32 bit libraries and Steam may not run: libsystemd.so.0 so I'm pretty sure they added it as a dependency.
Thing is it was working in the past. But I downgraded from gremlins due to getting wrong libs for some programs. So I might be missing something.

Could you run "ldd" on the steam binary (wherever it is; I don't know where it's stored) and post the output here?

Did pacman -Syu today and it broke my steam, so yeah, something is not right..
This is what i get when launching from terminal:
Code: [Select]
$ steam

Doesn't appear to be related. Looks like some xorg thing.

You might be right. This might be nvidia related.

So I fixed it I reintstalled all packages in the lib32 repo. Now steam runs again.

Just a note:

If you have the lib32-elogind already installed and you get the same error, just make a softlink, as below

Code: [Select]
sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/libelogind.so /usr/lib32/libsystemd.so.0
