I've been trying to install Steam on my Rasberry Pi 2 through ExaGear Desktop, a program that allows x86 apps to run on ARM. I followed the steps here: https://wiki.debian.org/Steam and Steam installs successfully.

Unfortunately when I run steam with $ steam it quits while starting.

It doesn't seem like many people have tried this, but I think it could be a good alternative to NVidia GameStream for streaming. I found this one video demonstrating it working here, but it doesn't include any instructions.

The output in the console after downloading the updates is as follows:
