Perhaps you can tell us exactly how you installed Steam for Slackware. It should be dead simple. Most likely cause is what phenixia2003 already suggested - you do not know how to install a Slackware package.

Your second post is very different from your original post, where you reported the output
Code:
 $ steam
/home/cytric/steamclient-1.0.0.39-i386-1alien/usr/lib/steam/bootstraplinux_ubuntu12_32/steam.sh: line 436: syntax error: unexpected end of file
That was an example of a failed package installation.
Your second post shows that the package is not correctly installed (you must have done something inbetween, right?).
The errors you are getting now are usually caused by the graphics driver for your computer.
What graphics card do you have and what graphics driver are you using for that card?

You need to install the Nvidia binary driver. This involves blacklisting the Nouveau driver (the package to do this with the package found in /extra -> http://mirrors.slackware.com/slackwa...eau-blacklist/) and install the Nvidia driver, which you have 2 options. Install via the Nvidia driver from their site, or a few slack builds.

http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14...ries/libvdpau/
http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14...nvidia-kernel/
http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14...nvidia-driver/

More information can be found in the Slackware documentation wiki:

http://docs.slackware.com/howtos:har..._configuration

I don't know which method of installation is best. I have an old laptop and have never had good results running the Steam games. Windows versions run ok, but the Linux ones ran dog slow. I just use a dedicated Windows box for gaming now.

It looks like you got the client package, but didn't install it properly.

installpkg should help you out, look at the man page and run as root to install aliens steam package.
