Problems installing Steam

Hey there!

I've recently downloaded Korora 25 64-bit and I wanted to install Steam so I can play a few of my games. I looked online and followed some instructions I found, but after the installation Steam doesn't open at all. When I then try to start it via the Terminal, I get the following error

Repairing installation, linking /home/mjohanning/.steam/steam to /home/mjohanning/.local/share/Steam
Running Steam on korora 25 64-bit
STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically
Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(0)
/home/mjohanning/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: Zeile 713: 25334 Segmentation fault      (Speicherabzug geschrieben) $STEAM_DEBUGGER "$STEAMROOT/$STEAMEXEPATH" "$@"
/home/mjohanning/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: Zeile 444: Keine Entsprechung: ssfn*

Does anyone have any idea how I'd be able to fix this?

Regards

How did you install Steam? What guide did you use?

Actually you don't need a guide as it is in the repos, all you need is sudo dnf install steam.

I did that, but then there was still an issue, because it said some libraries were missing. I then did a quick Google search to find out that I needed the 32-bit nVidia drivers. After I installed those, the error I mentioned in my post appeared when I tried starting Steam via the command line. When I try to start it from the application manager, nothing happens

Sorry, I've no experience with Steam. I've asked on irc for you but you might be better asking on Steam's forums.

When you say you did that was that after your previous attempt or was that how you did it originally? If you had installed some other way first it would have been better to remove all that you have done, except the video drivers, and start from scratch.

is this on a laptop or desktop? If laptop, do you know if you have the hybrid optimus graphics? if on desktop, do you have integrated graphics also, or just the nvidia card?
