Steam not working - SEGFAULT - Need help please

Hello fellow Opensusers,

I’ve been looking everywhere to find an answer to this question.
I’ve recently made the switch from Manjaro Linux to OpenSuse tumbleweed on my main desktop and work station.
Overall I’ve been really satisfied but I am unable to make steam work.

Everytime I try to login I get asked to identify my new computer by steam.
As soon as I enter the Steam Guard code I get a segmentation fault. I’ve tried running steam with and without runtime to no avail.
I looked everywhere on the web for a solution to my problem but nothing conclusive has come about so I figured I’d ask here.

For info I use the Mesa driver and have a Radeon R7 370 graphics card.

Here is the error I’m getting:

At this point I have no idea what the problem even is. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Mesa is not a driver as such normally you would use the open source Radion driver. Try the proprietary AMD driver

Thank you for getting back at me.
I’ve checked for the proprietary driver but it appears from the OpenSUSE docs that it is not supported in the “Tumbleweed” version.
There seems to be a user made variation for the installation, but that doesn’t appear to be very safe.

My issue is how can I know if that is even the error with steam? What does this segmentation fault represent and how can I know if it is driver related?

EDIT: I’m running KDE if that makes any difference

Who knows what the error means it is a catch all for serious error. Only the programmers. Something is not meshing with the OS environment right

With TW you must install the hard way ie from stuff from the makers site. This may or may not work because TW has fast moving kernel upgrading cycle. It generally takes the GPU people a bit to catch up.

When riding the cutting edge you have to expect to bleed.

42.1 is a lot more stable

Looks like https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=988273 . No solution yet.
