Steam Problems?

I just installed Steam with Cedega on my SUSE 9.2 system, and things seem to be working alright. In order to not have top download all of CS:Source again I copied the files from my Windows partition over to my transgaming drive.

Now, though, when I try to connect to a game, it says that the game is not available, please try again later. Is there problems with Steam currently, or is it something more specific to Linux or my install?

Basicly from what I remember if you look in your Valve folder you should see a ClientRegistry.blob file... Just delete that while Steam isn't running. Start Steam again and it should do an update for you. Sounds like your missing files from your Windows version. Doing that should take care of the problem.

Hopefully you don't have an ATI video you do go back to Windows for gaming.

I do have an ATI card, and I know how difficult they can be, but I've managed to get it working in the past, and most of the games I've tried work alright with some occasional crashing.

This seems more like an installation or general Steam problem, since everything seems to work, it just tells me the game is not accessible.
