Steam

Steam have recently released on Linux.  I've grabbed the .deb and tried to install with sudo dpkg -i steam_latest.deb.  This did not complete the install so I tried with --force-all:

codemonkey@crunchbang:~/downloads$ sudo dpkg -i steam_latest.deb 
(Reading database ... 102086 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace steam 1.0.0.29 (using steam_latest.deb) ...

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of steam:
 steam depends on libc6 (>= 2.15); however:
  Version of libc6:i386 on system is 2.13-38.

dpkg: error processing steam (--install):

Errors were encountered while processing:

Seems that it's installed fine, but when I try to run I get the following:

codemonkey@crunchbang:~/downloads$ steam

I did some searching around this issue.  Everything I can find seems to be related to people who are running 64bit Debian.  One particularly long and unresolved thread was discussing upgrading libc6 to 2.15, at which I also had no success.

I am pretty certain I am not on 64bit #!.  I downloaded the 32-bit image and uname -a gives me:

Linux crunchbang 3.2.0-4-686-pae #1 SMP Debian 3.2.35-2 i686 GNU/Linux

Has anyone had any success running Steam on a non-Ubuntu distro?  Any ideas what I might do to install steam?

Re: Steam

w00t that worked!  I had to cd to ~/.steam/bin and run ./steam from there, but it's working!

Re: Steam

Well... the steam self-updater ran for a bit, then closed with no warning.  Trying to run it again just gives "failed to load libsteam.so".

Again, lots of [SOLVED] posts re: 64bit ubuntu, but not a lot besides that.  I think I'm going to give up, not like I'm going to play any games on my #! machine, I've got a gaming rig for that  kiss

Thanks for the help sage.
