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.
My system specs follows:

I ran steam from konsole and got this:

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:

Also in terminal run Steam as "LD_DEBUG=libs steam", maybe it'll show something interesting.
