Do my opensuse friends realise steam is still in beta.
Me and others are testing it. But allot cant because there is no official
package.

Is this gonna drag on, untill me and many other have switched to a different
distro ?
(a few already have)
This is not a threat, I am seriously concerned.

Valve is beta testing, we need opensuse users, to test too.
So they can give feedback to Valve.
How are they gonna do this, if they cant install it ?

For years the graphic drivers, are a weak spot on Linux.
Thanks to Valve, Amd and nvidia are releasing better drivers.

A few of us, posted on the steam forum, that we wanted opensuse to be
supported.
Valve listened to us, so they put a link to a repo on their official steam
for Linux page.
A repo which is not working.

I am not just ranting, I also emailed Valve about this.
Valve made a new license, so we are allowed to make a rpm.

It would be shame if opensuse misses out because of this.

Valve is trying hard, and we should help them.

I agree with everything you're saying, but there is a process to go
through - ESPECIALLY when legal is concerned.
The fact that they have modified their license to allow for
redistribution is great, but as it is not open source and the OBS is
hosted by SUSE we need to comply with their legal obligations. Yes, it
may suck but that's how things are.

BEFORE INSTALLING THIS SOFTWARE PROGRAM. THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS
IMPORTANT
TERMS THAT AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS. BY INSTALLING THE SOFTWARE PROGRAM,
YOU
AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO
THE
TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, PLEASE DO NOT INSTALL THIS SOFTWARE PROGRAM.

The software application(s) (the “Program”) is the copyrighted work of
Valve
Corporation (“Valve”) or its suppliers.
All rights reserved, except as expressly stated herein. The Program is
provided solely for installation by end users
according to the terms of this License Agreement, except as provided
below
regarding permitted redistributions. All
use of the Program is governed by the terms of the Steam subscriber
agreement located at www.steampowered.com/agreement
(the “Steam Agreement”), as such terms may be updated from time to time,
which terms are incorporated into this License
Agreement by this reference. Any use, reproduction or redistribution of
the
Program not in accordance with the terms of
the License Agreement and the Steam Agreement is expressly prohibited.
LICENSE AGREEMENT

1. Grant of Licenses.

A. Personal Use Limited Installation License. Valve hereby grants, and by
installing the Program you thereby accept, a
limited, non-exclusive license and right to install one (1) copy of the
Program on each of your computers solely for
your personal use.

B. Limited Redistribution License. Valve hereby grants, and you accept, a
limited, terminable, non-exclusive license to
reproduce and distribute an unlimited number of copies of the Program;
provided that the following conditions are
met:

(i) you must distribute the Program in its entirety;

(ii) you may not modify the Program, except that, in the case of the
Linux
version of the Program, you may modify
scripts and other documentary and graphical files, but not any files
containing the term “bootstrap” in the file
name, provided that you do not modify any icons, change any copyright or
other notices, or alter this or any
other license agreement that is included with the Program, and provided
further that any modifications you
make are identified by you as modifications from the original Program
provided by Valve;

(iii) you may repackage the Program and distribute it with another
software
program, provided that you do not
integrate the Program in any way with that other software program, or
combine the Program with that other
software program in a manner that would require you to distribute the
Program under any open source or other
license terms different from these terms.

(iv) you may not charge any separate fee or receive any compensation
attributable to the Program;

(v) you must include this License Agreement provided with the Program and
ensure that it will display and be
required to be accepted by the end user in the same manner as is required
by
the Program in the form received
by you; and

(vi) you must preserve in all copies of the Program all copyright and
legal
notices that are attached to the copy
of the Program received by you.

C. Restrictions/Reservation of Rights. Except as expressly set forth
elsewhere in this License Agreement,
you may not, in whole or in part: copy, photocopy, reproduce, translate,
reverse engineer (with the exception of
specific circumstances where such act is permitted by law), derive source
code from, modify, disassemble,
decompile, or create derivative works based on the Program; remove any
proprietary notices or labels on the
Program; or attempt in any manner to circumvent any security measures
designed to control access to the Program.
You may not package the Program with, or pre-install the Program on, any
hardware, without obtaining a separate
license from us. The Program is licensed to you as a single product. Its
component parts may not be separated for
use on more than one computer. You may not sell, grant a security
interest
in, rent, lease or license the Program to
others without the prior written consent of Valve. The Program is
licensed,
not sold. Your license confers no title or
ownership in the Program or copies thereof.

2. Ownership. All title, ownership rights and intellectual property
rights
in and to the Program and any and all
copies thereof (including but not limited to any titles, computer code,
themes, objects, characters, character names,
stories, dialog, catch phrases, locations, concepts, artwork, animations,
sounds, musical compositions, audio-visual
effects, methods of operation, moral rights, any related documentation,
and
“applets” incorporated into the Program)
are owned by Valve or its licensors. The Program is protected by the
copyright laws of the United States,
international copyright treaties and conventions and other laws. All
rights
are reserved. The Program contains certain
licensed materials and Valve’s licensors may protect their rights in the
event of any violation of this Agreement.

3. Termination. This License Agreement is effective until terminated. You
may terminate the License
Agreement at any time by destroying the Program. We may terminate your
rights set forth in Section 1.B. of this
License Agreement at any time upon notice to you. This License Agreement
shall automatically terminate in the
event that you fail to comply with the terms and conditions contained
herein. In such event, you must immediately
destroy the Program. The provisions of Sections 2, 3, and 5-7 will
survive
any termination of the Agreement.

4. Export Controls. The Program may not be re-exported, downloaded or
otherwise exported into (or to a
national or resident of) any country to which the U.S. has embargoed
goods,
or to anyone on the U.S. Treasury
Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Commerce
Department’s Table of Denial Orders. By
installing the Program, you are agreeing to the foregoing and you are
representing and warranting that you are not
located in, under the control of, or a national or resident of any such
country or on any such list.

5. WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS; LIMITATION OF LIABILITY; NO GUARANTEES.
DISCLAIMERS
OF WARRANTY AND LIMITATIONS ON LIABILITY SET FORTH IN THE STEAM
AGREEMENT,
AND/OR
ELSEWHERE IN THE STEAM AGREEMENT, APPLY TO YOUR USE OF THE PROGRAM. AS
NOTED
IN
THE STEAM AGREEMENT, FOR EU CUSTOMERS, SUCH PROVISIONS DO NOT REDUCE YOUR
MANDATORY CONSUMERS’ RIGHTS UNDER THE LAWS OF YOUR LOCAL JURISDICTION.

6. Warranties/Indemnities Relating to Redistribution. If you choose to
redistribute the Program, you represent
and warrant that any modifications you make to the Program, if any, and
your
particular combination of the Program
with any other software or hardware, do not infringe on any third-party
intellectual property rights. You agree to
defend, indemnify and hold harmless Valve, its licensors, and its and
their
affiliates from all liabilities, claims and
expenses, including attorneys’ fees, that arise from or in connection
with
your redistribution of the Program or your
breach of this License Agreement. Valve reserves the right, at its own
expense, to assume the exclusive defense and
control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you. In
that
event, you shall have no further obligation
to provide indemnification to Valve in that matter.

7. Miscellaneous. Provisions relating to applicable law and jurisdiction,
and dispute resolution, set forth in the
Steam Agreement shall apply to any disputes arising under this Agreement.
This License Agreement and the Steam
Agreement terms incorporated herein may be amended, altered or modified
at
any time by Valve in Valve’s sole
discretion. In the event that any provision of this License Agreement
shall
be held by a court or other tribunal of
competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, such provision will be
enforced
to the maximum extent permissible and
the remaining portions of this License Agreement shall remain in full
force
and effect. This License Agreement and
the Steam Agreement constitute and contain the entire agreement between
the
parties with respect to the subject
matter hereof and supersede any prior oral or written agreements.

You hereby acknowledge that you have read and understand the foregoing
License Agreement and agree that the
action of installing the Program is an acknowledgment of your agreement
to
be bound by the terms and conditions of
the License Agreement contained herein, including the Steam Agreement.

It can only return after having the license reviewed by SUSE Legal and
the package would need to be hosted in the Non-OSS repo and have the
EULA appear prior to install much in the same way that Flash or
Acrobat do.
