Re: Steam for Debian Wheezy

Fair enough, but isn't that solved? The readme says this:

Question: What's the difference between this installer and Valve's?

Answer: This version comes with an extra folder called i386-linux-gnu and x86_64-linux-gnu which is from Ubuntu's libc6 deb package, it is saved in /usr/lib/steam/. The steam-debian excutable loads said folder which solves the need for glibc 2.15

because the definition of backports is that the packages are built
against library versions in stable, and Steam depends on a newer libc6
that will never enter stable.
