GLIBC_2.17 can't be found, but i'm already using libc6
since my last debian testing/sid update, my steam crash at startup :

sudo aptitude reinstall libc6

can you try and install version 2.17 of libc6? Because I see you have version 2.17-3 of libc6

I'm not a Linux guru, but since that is the only diffrence I see, it could be that... allthough, if I remember correctly, libc6 for Steam only needs to be >=2.15, but I don't think it's a bad thing to try, is it?

Thank for answer. I was able to run it again : i downloaded and extracted the 32b ubuntu version of that lib to steamlib folderr

Could you please describe the steps you have done? I am faced with the same problem right now on my Debian but I am not that savvy yet with Linux.

you must download the 32 version of libc6 from ubuntu http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=libc6&searchon=names&suite=raring&section=all , ie : http://packages.ubuntu.com/raring/libc6 there is a link on the bottom of the content of page.

then locate (sudo updatedb && locate ubuntu12_32/libc.so. ) where you libc6 for steam is installed ( echo $STEAM_LIBS ) and overwrite files needed with the content of dpkg -x libc6*ubuntu*.deb you downloaded on those folders

Weird.

I just had a similar problem: moved from Wheezy to Jessie (libc-2.13 -> 2.17), and tried to run Steam. No luck, it was crashing with the same error described by OP.

Decided to get rid of Ubuntu's libc local install, no changes.

Then I've decied to run the Steam binary RIGHT FROM THE LOCAL STEAM INSTALL DIR (~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam), and BAM! The autoupdater kicked in, redownloaded everything (a ~90MB package), and since then Steam works like a champ in my Jessie setup - no need for Ubuntu's libc crap anymore. So you may want to give a try to this trick...
