Got the same problem yesterday. Hope they fix soon, SUSE is the best =)

I didn't encounter any problems, using openSUSE 12.2 with the latest steam beta client.

TheHollowCops, can you post a bug report on github for tracking, 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

Someone mentioned that xhost + fixed it, so it may have something to do with the location of the .Xauthority file. Do you have a file named ~/.Xauthority? If not, what's the value of the $XAUTHORITY environment variable?

Thanks!

Okay, I added all of the runtime 1 and 0 data on the github.
https://github.com/ValveSoftware/steam-for-linux/issues/1201

i had a problem with the strace output. that command didn't produce anything in the file. Is there another way to do the strace output?

I have the ~/.Xauthority file.

Looks like using this command is working for me:

xhost +; steam

Thanks slouken
