problem running steam on fedora
i cant seem to get steam running on fedora 18 with gnome

i installed steam with the rpm's listed here:
steam on linux

i starts up and says it cant make connection to the steam network


when i run steam in terminal i get this output(note:
im now running it on a college network that doesnt grant me acces to the steam network, but it doesnt work at home either, here i get the screen with the option to start in offline mode(which does not work and procedes to give me the error i get at home.):

I don't know about Fedora, but did you take a look at the linked URL?

This looks strange. What if you try to set the variable (by script or manually)?

ok i launched steam through terminal with
steam STEAM_RUNTIME=1

now steam started to update steam (it's never done this before) so now i'll wait and pray it works itself out

will post status after its done
Muffin Nov 5, 2013 @ 4:43am 
OK it updated, and it all starts up fine now, thx. this was quite a weird problem imo, hope all of this is fixed and non-existant after steam gives support to more linux distros
-peace out

Cool! :o)
