Steam on Fedora 64-bit

It's really nice that Steam is now in RPFusion repository for Fedora. However getting it to run is not fully straightforward on a 64-bit system. If you try you will most probably get the message:

OpenGL GLX context is not using direct rendering, which may cause performance problems.

To fix this some 32-bit packages need to be installed. To do that you need login as root and run:

yum install pulseaudio-libs-glib2.i686 libao.i686 esound-libs.i686 alsa-oss-libs.i686 alsa-plugins-oss.i686 alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i686 audiofile.i686 mesa-libGLU.i686

Then depending on the graphics card vendor 

For NVIDIA: yum install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686
For AMD: yum install xorg-x11-drv-catalyst-libs.i686
