    my only problem with it now is alot of games that they have that do have native linux clients arent available yet. I'd re purchase several games if they would add the linux client to the list. The other thing is that it doesnt do any dependancy checking. I've had to install several needed dependancies, but didnt get any indication from steam at all what was needed. Of course desura has the exact same problem, so it isnt exclusively a steam issue.

    if the game spits an error about missing a library, then steam should let the user know.

      I do agree but if I understand things right, you already can.

      To start teamfortress 2 on suse I need to

      first type
      export SDL_AUDIODRIVER=alsa
      SDL_AUDIODRIVER=alsa steam

      the second command creates allot of data, which because I am not a coder, I do nut fully understand but,
      it tells you if it cant find something.
