Solvedsteam for linux Steam crashes on auto-login with utlmemory.h assertion hint

Your system information

  • Steam client version (build number or date):
  • Distribution (e.g. Ubuntu): Arch
  • Opted into Steam client beta?: Yes
  • Have you checked for system updates?: Yes

Please describe your issue in as much detail as possible:

Steam does not start up when opting in to beta. Opting out by removing ~/.steam/steam/package/beta works fine though.

When issue #7807 was raised, I simply installed lib32-pipewire from AUR, but since today the Beta seems to be completly broken now. I already uninstalled lib32-pipewire again but it resulted in no change to the current issue.

Output:

We are aware of this and do not need new reports at the moment. Please don't add a "me too" comment unless you have significant new information.

The minimal workaround seems to be: edit ~/.steam/registry.vdf and change "RememberPassword" from "1" to "0".

Other Answers:

I appear to have hit this same issue on the stable client from the update today.

looks like have same problem #7477 (comment)

steam --reset worked (after i delete ~/.steat/steam.sh`, without this it fails)

Same issue here. Steam is completely broken now, both in beta and stable.

I can fix it again by running steam --reset but it will only work as long as I don't restart Steam again. As soon as it finishes downloading all shaders it stops working again.

@kisak-valve Is it possible to rollback that update on Linux for now? I can't play anything with Proton right now.

I confirm, docker network prune, did the trick, I assume we hit some kind of limit ?
