Reinstall didn't fixed nothing.

Any Ideas?

Please try this: open a terminal window and type:

STEAM_RUNTIME=0 steam

And see if that runs. Thanks.

Hi.
Thanks for the support.
After the tag you posted, i got an error linked to "libXdmcp".
After i installed LibXdmcp6-32bit (the 64-bit vers was allrdy installed) I'm able now to start steam and login as long as i use STEAM_RUNTIME=0.
When i don't use it, steam still stop after i see a bit of the "Updating Steam" window.
Since i use Steam mainly as a chat-client on this machine, i'm satisfied-
thank you :)

edit: Just Downloaded and Installed CS 1.6 - works as well, perfect :)

However, here is the terminal output if you have any use for it (btw. i'm using xfce - especially the warning about clearlooks might be linked to this, i had them allrdy before iirc)

Terminal output with STEAM_RUNTIME=0

I have to start steam with this command: SDL_AUDIODRIVER=pulseaudio steam

but I do have sound.

Today I used this, and I do not get the message, your package is out of date anymore.
http://software.opensuse.org/package/steam

It has already worked as fresh install, and also as an update. ( without removing anyhing)
SUSEd Feb 2, 2013 @ 5:02am 
Thanx OP. I installed missing package and launched steam with this weird variable. It helps me.

BTW what is that?

So what's the problem?

I have the same problem. I've solved it by running 'xhost +' before running steam (which is not good solution). Maybe it helps you to identify the issue.

I do not have a problem, was only trying to help.

But I saw this:

As far as I understand this, it means your steam uploaded a crash report.
You could post this on the github.

Mine looks like this opensuse 12.2 64 bit and works fine

I type:
SDL_AUDIODRIVER=pulseaudio steam
then enter and:

Looks like latest version of steam tries to use something like chroot.
https://github.com/ValveSoftware/steam-runtime
to make it cross-disto. Thats why steam crashes.
slouken Feb 2, 2013 @ 11:19am 
Mumbo-Jumbo, can you post a bug report on github, and include the output with STEAM_RUNTIME=0 and STEAM_RUNTIME=1?
https://github.com/ValveSoftware/steam-for-linux

Also, can you add strace output that we can compare?
STEAM_RUNTIME=0 strace -f steam 2>&1 | grep "open(" >/tmp/steam_runtime_disabled.txt
STEAM_RUNTIME=1 strace -f steam 2>&1 | grep "open(" >/tmp/steam_runtime_enabled.txt

Thanks!
slouken Feb 2, 2013 @ 12:11pm 
Do you have a file named ~/.Xauthority? If not, what's the value of the $XAUTHORITY environment variable?

Hi.
Posted it on Githhub, could be formated better though (i'm in hurry a bit atm):
https://github.com/ValveSoftware/steam-for-linux/issues/1228

Greetings, Mumbo

PS: I got no xauthority file as far as i can see (neither in the steam directory, nor in root).
Output of $XAUTHORITY:

bash: /var/run/gdm/auth-for-mumbo-RbmD7c/database: Keine Berechtigung
=> German for "No Permission"
