Would anyone know how to go about installing Steam on Fedora 22? I've tried through Fedy, and it fails, and on Terminal, it states there's no such package by that name.

After executing "dnf install steam" I have this error:

Erreur : package steam- requires nss(x86-32), but none of the providers can be installed

dnf provides nss

(on mine it's nss-3.18.0-1.fc22.x86_64)

It seems like the x86-64 version of nss is newer than the x86-32 version of nss. I had to run

dnf downgrade nss nss-softokn nss-util nss-softokn-freebl nss-sysinit nss-tools

to first downgrade nss from 3.19.0-1 to 3.18.0-1. Then run

dnf install nss.i686 nss-softokn.i686 nss-util.i686 nss-softokn-freebl.i686

to install nss.

@samuelpoon1234 that's.. interesting. x86_64 and i686 packages are almost always built from the same sources, and so would have the same versions available at any given time. dnf does not update dependencies on install, however; I suspect you could have gotten the job done by making sure your system was up to date as the first step.

sudo dnf install

Thank you leigh123linux, that dnf command helped! I didn't realize it wasn't in the repos as of yet, though, that was in the back of my mind when it wasn't working originally.

Thank you but I have fedora 22 and it's not working, this the error message:

Last metadata expiration check performed 2:50:40 ago on Thu May 28 19:44:41 2015. Erreur : package steam- requires nss(x86-32), but none of the providers can be installed

But in steam website, they say it is available in RPMFusion nonfree repo.

Steam is in i386 repos :

so you should be able to install it with:

dnf install

It is a known issue, packages that are only i686 arch doesn't appears on x86_64 repos .

Steam is not a "free" software. So steam will not be included in any official fedora repositories. Read more about similar softwares (forbidden items) that cannot be included in official fedora repositories here. If you really want to use steam and if you don't mind using freeware, you may enable RPMFusion nonfree repo and type sudo dnf install steam in terminal.
