Steam video driver issue

Postby 3mnettow » 2017-09-24 10:29

I'm having a problem getting Steam installed. I followed this installation instructions for sid /unstable:
https://wiki.debian.org/Steam

1. Added to /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/ sid main contrib non-free

2. Setup multiarch
dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update

3. Install Steam
apt-get install steam

The following is the result of the failed installation:
Code: Select all
~$ sudo apt-get install steam
Reading package lists... Done

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 steam:i386 : Depends: libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 but it is not going to be installed
              Depends: libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.


When try to install:
libgl1-mesa-dri:i386
libgl1-mesa-glx:i386
I get more dependencies problems.
I'm using Intel CI7-4790K with 4600 GPU.
Please advise.
Thanks
