Steam won't open.(steam specific)

So when I launch steam on a custom kernel or main kernel I get this error: “X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)” started shortly after I installed nvidia-dkms and going back to nvidia doesn’t fix it. using my igpu works however. (note: I’m on arch linux 64 bit).

Have you installed all dependencies? [SOLVED] X Error of failed request: BadValue - optirun/primusrun / Multimedia and Games / Arch Linux Forums

I do believe I have everything. updated nvidia-settings to see if that fixes it. (edit: did not help)

as for the dependincies…
$ sudo pacman -Q | grep -i -e libgl -e nvidia -e nouveau

lib32-libglvnd 1.3.2-1
lib32-nvidia-utils 455.23.04-1
lib32-opencl-nvidia 455.28-1
libglvnd 1.3.2-1
nvidia-dkms 455.28-1
nvidia-prime 1.0-4
nvidia-settings 455.28-1
nvidia-utils 455.28-1
opencl-nvidia 455.28-1
I do believe that is all of them. (if not please let me know what package I’m missing)

Wouldn’t the arch forums be better to ask than us for this? Because we don’t have the same kernel patches as Arch. And some configs might be different.

True, however I don’t think they’d accept me as well

If you believe that, why bother using an OS where people don’t care about helping you? “I don’t think” sounds like you haven’t attempted, so you should try posting over there for help.

Else, you could just install Manjaro instead :slight_smile:

It’s a bit difficult to help someone using a different OS because:
