FM2014 on Steam, does it work on Sabayon? [Solved]

Postby moplen1984 » Tue Dec 24, 2013 20:27

I read to post here without fear so here I am. I am going to install Sabayon 14.01 x86 GNOME (32 bit LEGACY). While I was reading the features, I found out that there is a Steam platform (I don't know how to call it). Does it mean that ANY game which runs on Steam can be run with Sabayon? To be more explicit, does it mean that I can run Football Manager 2014 if I buy the Steam version?
FM2014's Steam version requires Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. So my question may sound dumb, but I thought that since Sabayon has got a Steam platform it could work on it too.. Am I wrong?
Thanks a lot!

Probably.
Way Steam is implemented allows for usage of libraries provided by Valve, which means that if drivers and hardware are capable of running game, then game from Steam should work.
If games wouldn't work, it would mean that some part is broken/insufficient (drivers, hardware) and needs repair/replacement.

To put it in simple way: except hardware and proprietary drivers you shouldn't have to worry whether game will work. (Just make sure that there is Linux version of it.)

Oh, and don't install 32 bit version of Sabayon, your hardware, since you're planning to play games, should be capable of running 64 bit version. It doesn't affect Steam and games on it, since Steam runs on it's own libraries (speaking from experience).

Thanks a real lot. I usually installed 32bit versions of Linux, I am not sure my pc can be capable of 64bit. How do I know if it can? It's an IntelCore2, I bought it in 2007; can't remember how much RAM on it :/
