Crash initializing steam on ubuntu 12.10
I'm using amd 12.11 beta drivers for Radeon hd 6870

This is the error:

I'm getting this error too on my Ubuntu 12.10. I'm using closed-source AMD drivers. Can't start Steam.

I got another error while lunching steam:
Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(1353371323_client)
SteamUpdateUI: An X Error occurred
X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
Major opcode of failed request: 153
(which is )
Minor opcode of failed request: 26
Serial number of failed request: 22
xerror_handler: X failed, continuing

Tried uninstalling (remove, autoremove, purge, clean,...) and reinstalling it but nothing change.
Before yesterday update it worked fine. I'm not a beta user and I'm using ubuntu 12.10 32bit on a netbook with intel acelerated graphics
