I wanted to install Valheim on my Mac Minibian* but ran into problems. This page is my notes on what I did to (hopefully) get it up and running.

* Mac Mini desktop computer running Debian that i have no other use for at this time ;-)


My installation steps

  1. GameDig requires Node.js a JavaScript runtime environment installed to work. Use these instructions to install Node.js in the latest version.
  2. Once Node.js is installed use npm to install gamedig as root with this command; npm install gamedig -g
  3. Install the requirements as root;
    1. dpkg --add-architecture i386; apt update; apt install curl wget file tar bzip2 gzip unzip bsdmainutils python util-linux ca-certificates binutils bc jq tmux netcat lib32gcc1 lib32stdc++6 steamcmd libsdl2-2.0-0:i386
  4. Download LinuxGSM install script and configure it for Valheim server; wget -O && chmod +x && bash vhserver
  5. Run the installer and follow the on-screen instructions; ./vhserver install
