Please see this issue for the problem that the steam client had which is now fixed (now the problem is the games):

ValveSoftware/steam-for-linux#2610

Anyone with XFS and a file-system > 1 TiB should be using the inode64 mount option which enables the usage of 64-bit inodes. The problem is if 32-bit programs are storing inode data in a 32-bit. I doubt steam games will be reduced on 64-bit to fix this issue so alternatively stats can be moved to stat64 or if you use this compiler flag:

_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 

It will usually fix the issue on existing code.

Here is the error I get trying to load a source game:

filesystem_steam.so doesn't exist on large non-ext4 file systems #3339

@MalkavianBilbao

Bug confirmed with Leaf 4 Dead 2. Installed in a XFS 64 bit partition it says:
Unable to load module /data/ubuntu_steam/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/Counter-Strike Source/bin/filesystem_steam.so!

Confirmed; native 64-bit XFS here as well.

The game doesn't run from an XFS filesystem #2

@ahknight

Portal 2. Ubuntu 15. filesystem_steam.so. XFS. Created a library on an ext4 partition. Works like a charm.

Really? This is still a thing?

@lachs0r
lachs0r commented Oct 12, 2015

Note that this is no longer limited to XFS with recent systems, as ext4 and btrfs may also use 64-bit inodes. Why is this not fixed yet? Because Steam is only supported on 32-bit Ubuntu LTS? Sorry, that’s too old to work on my hardware.

I mean, I can still play really old ports like UT99 or RTCW or Doom 3 on my system without messing around with filesystems, but almost none of the Valve titles work. Why isn’t this absolutely trivial problem fixed yet?

@wberrier
wberrier commented Oct 4, 2016

Surprising this hasn't been fixed... here's my work-around:

I have computer serving as a NAS with xfs exported over nfs. I have a client computer running steam. Sure enough, several games didn't load.

It's not feasible to make changes to my NAS drives, so I did the following:

create a sparse file image:

dd if=/dev/zero of=steam.img bs=1 count=0 seek=128G

create xfs filesystem that doesn't use 64bit inodes:

mkfs.xfs steam.img

Mount via automount in /etc/auto.misc:

steam  -fstype=xfs             :/nfs/path/steam.img

Then going to:

/misc/steam

it will mount the 32bit xfs image over nfs.

In case anyone else is looking for a work around...

@ahknight
ahknight commented Oct 4, 2016

My work-around, since they don't care to fix this, was to create a Wintendo.

Steam for Linux is practically abandoned.

@ValveSoftware is not handling Linux the right way #4668

@gnuheidix

I'm also affected by this issue. Can somebody estimate when a fix gets released? Thanks

Hello @gnuheidix, no estimates are given until there is a fix pending in a future update.
