I also tried STEAM_RUNTIME=0,it still not work

Here is the code snippet where the segmentation fault occurs.
----------------------------------------------------------
STEAM_DEBUGGER=$DEBUGGER
unset DEBUGGER # Don't use debugger if Steam launches itself recursively
if [ "$STEAM_DEBUGGER" == "gdb" ] || [ "$STEAM_DEBUGGER" == "cgdb" ]; then
ARGSFILE=$(mktemp $USER.steam.gdb.XXXX)

# Set the LD_PRELOAD varname in the debugger, and unset the global version.
if [ "$LD_PRELOAD" ]; then
echo set env LD_PRELOAD=$LD_PRELOAD >> "$ARGSFILE"
echo show env LD_PRELOAD >> "$ARGSFILE"
unset LD_PRELOAD
fi

$STEAM_DEBUGGER -x "$ARGSFILE" "$STEAMROOT/$PLATFORM/$STEAMEXE" "$@"
rm "$ARGSFILE"
elif [ "$STEAM_DEBUGGER" == "valgrind" ]; then
DONT_BREAK_ON_ASSERT=1 G_SLICE=always-malloc G_DEBUG=gc-friendly valgrind --error-limit=no --undef-value-errors=no --suppressions=$PLATFORM/steam.supp $STEAM_VALGRIND "$STEAMROOT/$PLATFORM/$STEAMEXE" "$@" 2>&1 | tee steam_valgrind.txt
else
$STEAM_DEBUGGER "$STEAMROOT/$PLATFORM/$STEAMEXE" "$@"
fi
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Try this (make a backup before):
- Open steam.sh with an text editor
- Browse to the line 545 and at this line between line 544 and 545 add:
echo "$STEAM_DEBUGGER"

save the changes and try again.

Try installing Ubuntu with wubi rather than in a virtal machine, 3d acceleration is not that great in virtualbox.

you cant use steam on a VM you need full 3D drivers

They actually run on opengl 2.1 I think.

steam itself i belive you can run it on 2.1 but some games require 3.0 (not sure, i dont have any gpu using anything older then 4.3

I just want to launch steam,not for playing games...
