[Solved]Issue Report: Steam must be exited two times
After last update I have a strange error: every time I click Steam->Exit, the client closes but soon pops the update dialog: it does some operations then closes and steam starts again. If now I click Steam->Exit, it quits definitively.

The complete output of steam->exit->update->steam->exit loop

$ steam

It's a little bit off topic, but I notice two interesting things in the above lines of your log.

1. You are missing `pidof` command. My distro (Slackware) doesn't even package it. Your distro is based on arch linux, could you check if it is available in some package.

2. The 'root' symlink is something I reported yesterday. If I don't fix it manually after steam client is running, I can't play any DRM protected games.
Do you happen to have any problems with tf2?
[Linux] jiveaxe Dec 18, 2012 @ 3:18am 
The pidof message seems not give any particular problem, since all games in my library run fine (tf2, ss3, trine2, etc). Also my distro doesn't package sysvinit (containing pidof).
