True, but lets see how far we can get
12th May? Not only that valve didn't announce a linux client, it also won't be ready by then, the linux one is at much earlier stage than the mac one, it misses a lot of files such as GameOverlay.so, but the files for just firing the client seem to be all there.
Hrm, calling steam like so:Returns something that may or may not be interesting (I'm not 100% on what it is):Code:DEBUGGER="strace" LD_PRELOAD='./linux32/vaudio_speex.so ./linux32/friendsui.so ./linux32/libsteam.so ./linux32/libtier0_s.so ./linux32/libvstdlib_s.so ./linux32/serverbrowser.so ./linux32/steamclient.so ./linux32/filesystem_stdio.so ./linux32/steamui.so ./linux32/vgui2_s.so ./linux32/filesystem_steam.so' ./steam.sh
Code:XIO: fatal IO error 0 (Success) on X server ":0.0" after 38 requests (33 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
I got further now by "fixing" some function, but now i receive this error:

That's some seriously nice work you're doing there, mastertheknife. I agree that there *are* files missing so I don't expect the actual client to open just yet (maybe a very basic X windows that doesn't do much but is for testing purposes - who knows!), but sure it is nice to know what is possible already.
Latest build create two folders in my home directory: steamstore.steampowered.com and Steamstore.steampowered.com.
In steamstore.steampowered.com subfolders public/client/steam_client_linux/SteamApps/
In Steamstore.steampowered.com/public/client/steam_client_linux/ two files: ClientRegistry.blob and steam.log

Can we get some instructions on how to get there? I love you if so!!
