Hrm, I don't know if I'm the only one who thought of this, but here goes: To Linux users, if you download the files from the site that's back online now (http://store.steampowered.com/public...m_client_linux) and then make a steam.cfg in the same directory and add "Universe = http://store.steampowered.com/public/client/steam_client_linux" the client will automatically update itself!
Still getting the "Failed to load steamui.so" that was introduced in the latest version, however. Hrm.
In the official Steam forums one user was able to work around all the errors and get the client nearly starting. It worked just like Windows client and downloaded about 25 MB of updates which include Steam files but crashed after it was done. He posted a log of the console, maybe someone can write him a PM how he did that, he said he doesn't feel comfortable with posting it in the public as Valve has already blocked this minutes after his post.
