    So i have been running fedora for a while and finally got chrome installed and now, i move on to steam!
    So I installed steam and fallowed all the directions and i get this

    Running Steam on fedora 18 64-bit
    STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically
    Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(0_client)
    /home/noah/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 704: 3431 Segmentation fault (core dumped) $STEAM_DEBUGGER "$STEAMROOT/$PLATFORM/$STEAMEXE" "$@"
    Installing bootstrap /home/noah/.local/share/Steam/bootstrap.tar.xz
    Running Steam on fedora 18 64-bit
    STEAM_RUNTIME has been set by the user to: /home/noah/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime
    Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(0_client)
    /home/noah/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 704: 3518 Segmentation fault (core dumped) $STEAM_DEBUGGER "$STEAMROOT/$PLATFORM/$STEAMEXE" "$@"

    I have absolutily no idea what this all means and i would really like help, and like chrome this was very easy on my 32 bit laptop. Very weird.

    You can try

    Download STEAM repository
    Code:
    $ su -
    # wget http://spot.fedorapeople.org/steam/steam.repo
    Move STEAM repo file into your system repo directory
    Code:
    # mv steam.repo /etc/yum.repos.d
    # yum update
    # yum install steam
    or

    Code:
    # yum -y --enablerepo=rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing install steam
    # reboot
