I think I'm getting steam installed correctly but trying to run it for the first time fails.
I've ran sudo gdebi steam and I've got a Steam icon on my desktop. The installation asks me to "Start Steam to complete installation of the Steam Beta for the current user." However "Start Steam beta" button does nothing.
If I try to run steam from command line I get the following output:
/home/hannu/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 325: 2544 Segmentation fault (core dumped) $DEBUGGER "$STEAMROOT/$PLATFORM/$STEAMEXE" "$@"
/home/hannu/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 325: 2591 Segmentation fault (core dumped) $DEBUGGER "$STEAMROOT/$PLATFORM/$STEAMEXE" "$@"
dmesg is following:

I'm running 64-bit xubuntu 12.04 with latest updates. I'm using propietary AMD drivers.

EDIT: I think my video drivers are really old. I need to check them out.
EDIT: Got the latest ones from amd.com
. Makes no difference.
