[GitHub] Issue Report: Steam Big Picture crash
Since the last 3 updates, big picture mode stopped working for me, as soon as I want to switch to big picture Steam just exits with this error:
Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(1360282734_client)
./Steam/steam.sh: line 561: 23772 Segmentation fault $STEAM_DEBUGGER "$STEAMROOT/$PLATFORM/$STEAMEXE" "$@"
Running Steam on gentoo 64-bit (well actually funtoo, but it's based on gentoo and is detected as such by steam) with 13.1 catalyst drivers.

if you run steam with `STEAM_RUNTIME=0 steam`, does big picture still crash?

still crashes, although I get 3 more lines of error output

This is mostly just a bug report, since I don't use big picture at all, but I'm happy to provide more info on it if needed.

Would you be able to post this on the github https://github.com/ValveSoftware/steam-for-linux/issues with your system information

I've been having the same issue on Fedora 18 64-bit, this is with 'STEAM_RUNTIME=0 steam'

I just assumed it was SELinux, even though there was no log of it
