steam crashing - Nvidia Optimus - SOLVED

I've got a Dell laptop with dual graphics, had steam working with bumblebee and primus-run but now I've had to go back to using straight up Optimus to have hdmi out working (gotta run some DnD maps off of my laptop)

Steams just crashing for me now,  thoughts?

Re: steam crashing - Nvidia Optimus - SOLVED

Your - at least 32bit - GL setup is incorrect. How did you "go back to using straight Optimus" exactly? Post your configuration files and

pacman -Qs nvidia
pacman -Qs libgl
lspci -k

and a xorg log.

Yep, I just needed to install lib32 nvidia-utils,  thanks!
