There we have it, the cloud stopped responding, luckily I can send an error report about the cloud to the cloud.

After 2 weeks of fighting OS X I finally have sensible command line tools:
brew install coreutils


Anyone who prefers typing `rm -rf /some/path` to `rm /some/path -rf` has not typed it enough yet.

Quattor 13.02 is out

Thanks a lot to all the contributors and to everyone who provided feedback.

The packages will shortly reach the Yum repositories.

This release is the first one with the Yum-backed package manager.  It is an experimental package manager, so please make sure you read all the documentation before migrating.

Getting Steam working on fedora17

I've been able to get it to work under fedora 17 (64 bit)
download the .deb here http://media.steampowered.com/client/installer/steam.deb
extract the .deb file, extract the data.tar.gz, then extract the /usr/lib/steam/contents folder to ~/.steam

Then I had to install these packages (might be some more, I have a lot of crap already installed on my system)

sudo yum install openal-soft.i686 xulrunner.i686 mesa-libGL.i686 libpng-compat.i686

and

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:~/.steam/bin

after this this command should have the following input

$ ldd ~/.steam/bin/* | grep "not found" | sort -u

ldd: /home/jens/.steam/bin/shaders: not regular file

if it still shows non found for some libraries, search for the rpm containing them here
http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=libpng12.so.0&submit=Search+...&system=&arch=
and install them (be sure to install the .686 version)

If this succeeds, you need to run ~/.steam/steam.sh  close the screen when it complains about closed beta, then run ~/steam/bin/steam steam://open/games

result:
