Random crashes
Apparently Steam has been crashing on xubuntu 12.11 for me after the update (?) I don't get a crash report or anything, just suddenly disappears.

I think you meant 12.10 =)

Launch Steam via Terminal and past the output here. Also, on the client, go to Help - System information and past here.

I see there's a crash dump log, I'll have a look.

Via terminal, I also get a lot of this error:
(steam:7003): GLib-GIO-WARNING **: g_simple_async_result_complete() called from wrong context!

A response from Valve on this:

gdrewb-valve commented 10 days ago
The crash reports are glib detecting heap corruption and aborting. The stack is deep in glib. The Glib-CRITICAL messages could be related, or maybe not. This isn't Steam code so it's hard to know what is going on.

Is Intel only usable on Linux with OpenSource Drivers? If no, then you could try installing closed-source drivers.

Well it never crashed before, just today for some.

I'll give it some time for a future update.

This SOUNDS like a driver problem. If you're comfortable about installing another driver or doing a re-install, feel free to.

A re-install of what? Steam or my graphics driver? Which driver uses the GLib?

I mostly get on Windows to game though, since some of the games aren't on Linux yet.
[Linux] Junior s2 Camila Jun 10, 2013 @ 1:28am 
Well the subject was the driver, if I was to suggest a system re-install I would've said something about it :D

I know ZERO about Intel chips, so you might get a better answer on Google, but I'm sure things might break easy on Ubuntu 12.10 (used it for few hours, my head was going to explode if I used it any longer) so don't feel surprised if you need a system re-install. In that case, go for 13.04 or 12.04, they're both great.

Intel graphics are only supported on Linux through the Open Source driver, in which they've invested quite a few resources. There are some closed drivers, but they're for the Poulsbo graphics adatpers found on some Intel boards as IGPs which are graphics chips not made by Intel as such, but rather licensed by Intel from PowerVR.

The update broke something, mine crashed a few times too yesterday without a notification. It never did that before the update.

You're using 12.10 too?

I'm using Linux Mint Olivia, based upon the newest Ubuntu version.

I'm pretty sure it's steam related, and not OS related. Steam updated itself like 10 times by itself in a row before the crashes started occuring.
[Linux] Junior s2 Camila Jun 11, 2013 @ 10:04am 
Weird, I'm using Olivia as well and haven't noticed anything. Maybe it's related to the Intel chips.
MoneyBuysHappiness Jun 11, 2013 @ 8:10pm 
Well it happens rarely and often :P
