Bug/Error - Can not install steam

I can not install steam from the OpenSuSe BuildService. I installed the steam package (steam- 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:

I am mising the first line: My openSUSE version is … :wink:

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- (bugreport is on the way).
Wrong URL to fetch steam:


Quick fix is to edit the script to fetch steam:


Remove in line 9 the** http://** part


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



However, later on in the script…

for i in $useserver $SERVER; do
  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!"
  echo 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://”) :slight_smile:
steam- is on the way to the repository.
