    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.

    There's zero guarantee that you can run Linux Steam client from the publicly available files, because some core files might be missing and available only on developers workstations.
    I disagree. There's no harm in trying to get it working now

    it mean that valve is still in developing.

    Oh, I misunderstood... When you said "Steam is working"...

    Hrm, calling steam like so:
    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
    Returns something that may or may not be interesting (I'm not 100% on what it is):

    Code:
    XIO:  fatal IO error 0 (Success) on X server ":0.0"
          after 38 requests (33 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

    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
    steam.log:
    DebugAssert, Name: ?, Line: 1008, Expr: "open for read/write failed in CreateFile" && !pchErr, File: /home/VALVE/dberger/P4Clients/steam2_main/Projects/GazelleProto/Client/Engine/../../../Common/Misc/PosixWin32.cpp

    mastertheknife is a legend. If you followed #phoronix, you would have read that he did it:
