Steam package out of date
I seem to have the same problem as Dan10254, but cant post in the closed beta forums.
I am not on ubuntu though, I am on Opensuse 12.2 64 bit.

When I am in steam, it says it is the latest version.

Steam package out of date

I tried downloading latest deb, and made an rpm from it.
On install it quits because some files on my pc are newers versions, then the ones from the installer.
Posted it on github.

Also using suse 12.2 x64 and had the same problem. go to yast and uninstall steam. Then download it from here, install alien and run
$ alien --to-rpm ./steam.deb
The problem now is that it needs some packages that are maybe for ubuntu only and needs apt-get to install them automatically. I ran this command
zypper install jockey-common python-apt zenity xterm multiarch-support libcurl3-gnutls:i386 libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 libjpeg-turbo8:i386 libogg0:i386 libpixman-1-0:i386 libtheora0:i386 libudev0:i386 libvorbis0a:i386 libvorbisenc2:i386 libvorbisfile3:i386 libasound2:i386 libc6:i386 libcairo2:i386 libcups2:i386 libdbus-1-3:i386 libfontconfig1:i386 libfreetype6:i386 libgcc1:i386 libgcrypt11:i386 libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0:i386 libglib2.0-0:i386 libgtk2.0-0:i386 libnspr4:i386 libnss3:i386 libopenal1:i386 libpango1.0-0:i386 libpng12-0:i386 libpulse0:i386 libstdc++6:i386 libx11-6:i386 libxext6:i386 libxfixes3:i386 libxi6:i386 libxinerama1:i386 libxrandr2:i386 libxrender1:i386 zlib1g:i386 libsdl1.2debian:i386
but i still get the message to install them. Maybe we ll have to wait for the next update.

Isn't there an install script or something available for openSUSE? Seeing how other distros struggle to take something and repackage it for themself makes me happy that I use arch.

The official Suse repo is down, becauase of license questions.

I might just wait, for it to return.
