    Non-Debian distributions should use the new .tar.gz: http://repo.steampowered.com/steam/a..._latest.tar.gz

    That URL is useless for source-based Linux distros because it lacks a version number.

    Thanks for the answer.

    Yesterday I opened up steam, saw CS:Source was having a sale, and bought it, and it got me thinking: wouldn't it be nice if there was a site that listed promotions on linux games? It could list the HiB while they were running, and steam sales, and whatnot. That way you could have a central place to follow for all those things.

    What about this?
    http://repo.steampowered.com/steam/p....0.0.25.tar.gz

    I am really curious to see how it runs with the open drivers.
    Seconded! Especially free driver stacks.
    Maybe it is time to emerge a steam-client-meta on my system besides my Desura. I still got that Steam account around from L4D1 and 2 on Windows. Hadn't had much time for gaming lately but anyway. One more Linux client install in their logs and statistics.

    I am more interested if there are big differences between different distro's.

    I would like opensource drivers but at the moment for gaming, they are not a real option.

    Serious Sam 3 is hard enough on my pc on Linux and w7, with the proprietary drivers.

    There should not be much difference, most distributions use same software just differently composed and have there own system management software, all Linux binderies will work on any Linux as long as all dependice are meet and ofcorse it's compiled for your archtecture.
