I'm having a problem getting Steam installed. I followed this installation instructions for sid /unstable:

1. Added to /etc/apt/sources.list
deb sid main contrib non-free

2. Setup multiarch
dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update

3. Install Steam
apt-get install steam

The following is the result of the failed installation:
Code: Select all
~$ sudo apt-get install steam

I get more dependencies problems.
I'm using Intel CI7-4790K with 4600 GPU.
