After updating graphics card and during installation of Steam on CentOS 8 I get:

[root@comp pawel]# yum install epel-release
     Problem: conflicting requests
      - nothing provides libxcrypt-compat(x86-32) needed by steam-

[root@comp pawel]# yum install libxcrypt-compat
No match for argument: libxcrypt-compat

[root@comp pawel]# yum install libxcrypt

libxcrypt-4.1.1-4.el8.x86_64 is already installed.
libxcrypt-4.1.1-4.el8.i686 is already installed.

I have epel version:

epel-release-8-8.el8.noarch is already installed.

How to install Steam?

That installs on my EL8 system without any broken dependencies:

sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo=https://negativo17.org/repos/epel-steam.repo
sudo dnf yum -y install steam
  • Older Steam package is not longer available. Sep 27, 2020 at 0:19
  • Try the el7 package, it should work: centos.pkgs.org/7/nux-dextop-x86_64/… Steam updates itself anyway, so package version isn't particularly critical. Sep 27, 2020 at 0:37

    @music2myear there is no critique or request for clarification. The fact is that the dependencies on the latest el8 rpm are broken, and the only solution is indeed to install an older version of the package that is not broken. Sep 27, 2020 at 8:37

    @music2myear, there, added both the latest working link for el8, and how to install it. Sep 28, 2020 at 10:21

If you are on a x64 machine:

sudo dnf -y remove libxcrypt-4.*.i686
wget https://download-ib01.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/development/rawhide/Everything/x86_64/os/Packages/l/libxcrypt-compat-4.4.17-1.fc34.i686.rpm
sudo rpm -Uhv libxcrypt-compat-4.4.17-1.fc34.i686.rpm --nodeps
  • This is the only solution that worked for me on CentOS 8 stream, as Nov. 2020 Nov 17, 2020 at 6:20
  • I think you meant to say x86_64 for 64-bit, as i686 is 32-bit. Apr 11, 2021 at 23:57
