    Default Steam not working on 42.2

    Steam is giving me the same error that tumbleweed gave me while trying to run it. Works flawlessly on 42.1 not on TW and 42.2 This bug as been reported to github since it affects more users, but since opensuse page tells users to report it here, here it goes:

    How have you installed Steam? From the Game Tools Repository? Considering that Leap 42.2 is still in beta and months away, perhaps it's not a viable option for running Steam.

    Yes I did indeed, but its the most recent version of Steam. I've already reported this to bugzilla, the error seems to be linked to more modern openssl versions others say it's related to mesa. This happens on both tumbleweed and 42.2, the bugzilla report is here:

    Yes it's been two months that I have not been able to use steam due to this error. It seems on github most reporters are also on opensuse.

    Wonder if this happens to every opensuse user or just some, and when it will be fixed.

    This is the only solution I could find to get Steam running again on my TW install (20160911). Hope it helps.

    Code:

    zypper refresh
    zypper dup --from tumbleweed++
    My repo also contains a patched steam package that will automatically remove offending libs every time steam is started.

    The bug has been fixed on 42.2 beta. I first heard about the fix on bugzilla and github, then I tested it myself after updating the beta 2 to 3. The issue is still not fixed on TW afaik. Took a month to fix it, but it's done, gj for the community!

    I am on Tumbleweed, and it was fixed a couple of snapshots ago.

    I had the Tumbleweed issue as well on my laptop and it got fixed already.

    Now thinking of upgrading desktop computer that is on Leap 42.1 to 42.2.

    Can someone confirm whether steam now works again on 42.2 too ?

    Are you using your old steam folders?
