Anyone here try SteamOS yet?

#1New LinkPosted 10/9/2013 10:54:09 AM
Between being ridiculously busy with zero gametime lately and my gpu fan breaking (new fan should be coming today finally) I havent gotten a chance to try out SteamOS even though it's available (for the knowledgeable as well as the beta testers) Basically they've got a .deb up which includes the entire recovery partition (meaning it only takes a few minutes work to do some magic to get it working, you only need a few packages, most of which come on any distro (mount, rsync, xephyr, geniso, maybe one or two more im not recalling off the top of my head, xephyr isnt even 'necessary' but it'll allow you to test out your chroot before generating the iso) get in there and set up the squashfs.

Anyone take the time to make themself a livecd/liveusb yet?

If things slow down i'll get around to it (especially if my new tower gets sent out... long story) I may make a quick tutorial supposing valve doesnt open up the beta.

Have they even released the SteamOS yet?

According to that, it's "Downloadable soon"... so no... nobody has tried it yet.

Well, Valve has.

Maybe the TC is asking if anyone here is a closet Valve employee.

He's asking if anyone's gotten a copy from one of the beta testers or found an upload somewhere.

Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

Good plan! So yeah, if there ARE any closet valve employees, you don't have to reveal yourselves or anything...just keep in mind that I'm on the steam hardware beta :) ;)

from what i remember, last i checked it was a 1/1000 chance of getting in.

I've won a 1/120,000 odds lotto ticket before, so my hopes are high.
