No Way to Install SteamCMD on Fedora 35?

Hi there, thanks for taking the time.

I’m on Fedora 35 Workstation and have enabled 3rd party repos and even RPM Fusion trying to install SteamCMD which is required for various dedicated servers (eg Counter Strike: GO).

It seems like it can work on Fedora or perhaps used to via yum. How do I install SteamCMD on Fedora? If not, why is it not available anywhere? It seems drastic to switch back to PopOS but I had it working there. I’d prefer to get it working normally but are there any performant containerised options for Fedora?

If you already have steam installed from RPM fussion and able run isntalled steam, then you could install steamcmd easily. It’s just like regular bash script.

  1. Make directory mkdir ~/Steam then go into into this folder cd ~/Steam.

  2. Download & extract the package:

    # Download package
    $ wget https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/client/installer/steamcmd_linux.tar.gz
    # Extract it
    $ tar -xvzf steamcmd_linux.tar.gz
    
  3. Still inside the folder ~/Steam:

    # Browse the file
    $ ls
    linux32  linux64  package  public  siteserverui  steamcmd_linux.tar.gz  steamcmd.sh
    # Run the steamcmd.sh
    $ ./steamcmd.sh
    

Once again, you must already have steam installed from RPM Fussion and it’s work correctly since some dependencies needed from there.
