The error is as follows:

$ steam
Running Steam on fedora 22 64-bit
STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically
Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(0)
libGL error: unable to load driver:
libGL error: driver pointer missing
libGL error: failed to load driver: radeonsi
libGL error: unable to load driver:
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast

and the process doesn't exit by it's self. You have to press Control-C.

Just some minor analysis here. About the execution of the steam binary.

The main executable is a shell script that bootstraps ~/.steam/. Eventually ~/.steam/bin/steam will be executed.

 $ ldd bin/steam (0xf77d4000) => /lib/ (0xf7277000) => /lib/ (0xf726e000) => /lib/ (0xf7220000) => /lib/ (0xf721b000) => /lib/ (0xf70a0000) => /lib/ (0xf7084000) => /lib/ (0xf6eb7000)

Nothing is missing.

It seems to be some deficiency in Mesa.

You have to launch steam using this:

LD_PRELOAD='/usr/$LIB/' DIAPLAY=:0 steam

Correction:LD_PRELOAD="/lib/" steam will run it in present session. Thanks for the solve!

Didn't work for me: I get LD_PRELOAD="/lib/" steam ERROR: object '/lib/' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (cannot open shared object file): ignored.

you mean DISPLAY=:0 ? You can script kiddie this if you like and just run the script.

Documentation puts GDM running on :0 always. The user sessions start at :1.
