Error running steam

Hi there, I’ve been trying to get steam to run on fedora 32 and failing miserably. I keep getting You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run:

When I try to do a dnf install of the relevant package, I get Package glibc-2.31-4.fc32.i686 is already installed.

I’ve tried everything I can think of, which isn’t a lot, but am totally stuck.

This is a new install of F32 as my hard disc crashed fatally and beyond repair. The previous version was an F28 install that had been continuously updated, and although I only installed steam at F31, it worked when I got to F32. Then my disc crashed, and now can’t play. :frowning:

How did you install steam?

sudo dnf -y install steam


I have tried uninstalling and re-installing it. Both through dnf reinstall and dnf remove followed by dnf install


Perform Steam installation reset:
Post the output if the issue persists.


You sir, are an absolute hero!

Thank you, it all now works.
