    Exclamation Bug/Error - Can not install steam

    I can not install steam from the OpenSuSe BuildService. I installed the steam package (steam-1.0.0.44-1.1.x86_64.rpm) via the one click install method. It finished very quickly, and I ended up without Steam installed. It turned out, that as a fetching and converting program, it had failed with the following log message:

    Code:
    Installing steam-1.0.0.44-1.1.x86_64.rpm (installed size 2.5 kB)Starting script steam-1.0.0.44-1.1.x86_64

    Uh, sorry, lame.

    OpenSuSe 13.1 64bit, all updates installed. Packman-Everything, and several community repositories added. Manually installed nVidia proprietary drivers.

    There is small bug in steam-1.0.0.44-1.1.x86_64.rpm (bugreport is on the way).
    Wrong URL to fetch steam:
    Code:
    http://http://repo.steampowered.com/steam/pool/steam/s/steam/steam_1.0.0.44.tar.gz
    Quick fix is to edit the script to fetch steam:
    Code:
    /var/adm/update-scripts/steam-1.0.0.44-1.1-fetch-steam.sh.txt
    Remove in line 9 the http:// part
    Code:
    SERVER="http://repo.steampowered.com/steam/pool/steam/s/steam"
    and run the script manually.

    and run the script manually.
    This lead me to a solution to my problem, however, my case is a bit different.

    Line 9 was correct, so it was
    Code:
    SERVER="http://repo.steampowered.com/steam/pool/steam/s/steam"
    .

    However, later on in the script...

    Code:
    for i in $useserver $SERVER; do
      archive=http://$i/steam_$VERSION.tar.gz
      file=`echo $archive|awk -F "/" '{print $NF}'`
      rm -f $file
      echo "$file ($archive):"
      echo -n "  Fetching   ... "
      curl $CURL_OPTIONS -o $file $archive
      if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then
        rm -f $file
        echo "failed ... deleted!"
        continue
      fi
      success=true
      echo done
      break
    done
    I have deleted the "http://" part before the $i variable. Problem seems solved this way. Should I also make a different bug report? If so, how to do that?

    Different solution for the same problem (double "http://")
    steam-1.0.0.44-2.1.x86_64.rpm is on the way to the repository.
