Steam + Fedora 20 x64 + KDE random crash
I'm aware that steam is/was "only officially supported under Ubuntu", but I'll give it a try anyway.
I'm running Fedora 20 x64 KDE Spin. I'm experiencing a lot of random crashes lately, even though they seem pretty random, I think it tends to crash when changing the window focus from steam to another window, like minimizing steam.

Any tips or anyone else having this kind of problem?

The output doesn't tell much except that it's crashed...
This is a thread about Steam on Fedora, maybe it'll help:
http://steamcommunity.com/app/221410/discussions/0/828936718757263570/
Also in terminal run Steam as "LD_DEBUG=libs steam", maybe it'll show something interesting.
