Their website doesn't work right most of the time in Windows either. I think they expect everyone to be running a Cray, with a full render farm for graphics and OC-192 connections and Windows Home Premium

I've got jre-7u9-i586-1 installed on my slackware 14 system (32 bit).

The java *seems* to work on other websites, but is there someplace I can check to make sure?
Slackware64 14.0 multilib here, using Firefox as my webbrowser of choice, and I never had any of the issues you are describing. Only difference (but that should not make any difference for the Steam website) is that I am using OpenJDK instead of the Oracle binaries you are using.

Will installing these PulseAudio pacakages mess up my ALSA set up? I prefer and need to use ALSA for a few reasons.

No, the pulseaudio package will not be used by anything in Slackware. In the Steam client and Steam games you will probably have to configure the audio properties to use ALSA through pulseaudio but I have not yet tried getting sound to function.

It supports native ALSA. I think they just linked to the Pulse API because it was what was being used on Ubuntu as the primary audio manager. Microphone and VoIP chat work fine.

I'm anxious to see how many developers consider creating Linux games now.

PErhaps you do miss a font or a complete font directory? Did you do a full Slackware installation?

I had a problem similar to this on my laptop, but after I installed the latest ati proprietary drivers (from last month) steam started ok. I had an older version of those drivers installed before.
