You are running a 64 bit system, but most games are 32 bit applications. You need to provide a 32 bit version of the Mesa libEGL runtime libraries

To do so run this command:

sudo dnf install mesa-libEGL-12.0.3-1.fc24.i686

If you have the proprietary Nvidia drivers installed, run this command instead:

sudo dnf install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686

Now fedora doesnt boot.Its just blinking in the left corner.I can do control alt f2.I installed the nvidia driver from their homepage.I was able to install nvidia370 again and the boot is fine now.And i removed the libs and now Steam does work.I got no error now at the nvidia screen :)
