Until I verify cant make purchases I have steam guard turned off as I got sick of having to authorise every time I used a new browser/pc prompt in the app doesnt state a reason, it just says I need to verify. It's probably telling you that to get you to turn steam guard on because otherwise people get their accounts hijacked and then steam support spends a month back and forth in email trying to get it back.If it's coming from the steam account itself, and you want to use steam to buy stuff, I suggest you verify your email, turn on steam guard and leave it turned on.
Someone mentioned that using a package called "dnsmasq" would fix this, but I couldn't get it to work. Ages go by where most of the GUI in the steam client freezes up. Quite literary half the time there is no IO going in for any process.If you did not attempt this action, please change your password immediately.To complete this process, enter the following special access code into the authorization dialog before trying to log in again:nope i actually dont get an email at all, I just see a green box on top of the steam app asking me to verify my email address (As if its new but isnt).Mix that with the write barrier support of Ext4 (not necessarily the file system, if you use ext4 for reading/writing to ext3/2, then you'll see the problem there as well) and you get very poor writing performance.Just check what iotop says and you'll find jbd2 at the very top.Maybe months down the line it asks me again because the cookie or whatever is gone but that isn't bad at all. I have had steamguard turned on for quite a while and I don't get bugged to verify my email.
Maybe you've got cookies turned off somewhere and that causes the problem?
It seems to happen when I have not loaded the steam app for a while. I run steam every day pretty much so I've never gone more than one or two months without loading up steam.
Still, if it's once every couple of months that doesn't scream "excessive" to me either.
I also setup alerts to show a warning if IO rose above 30 KB/s for more than 1 secund. Running an ext4 filesystem that has about 1.3 TB of free space, 4.4 GB of used and is solely used for Steam games.
And an Error if it rose above 40 KB/s for more than 1 secund. About maby two that blinks past in the timespan of 1 minute. I tried to test if the disk would show similar bad performance with other tasks, so I used caja to simply copy a folder containing about 13 GB of data in a couple of files.
I also noticed that when I pause the download, and have started Steam from a terminal, I get loats of these errors before the download goes into paused mode: I have seen quite a few of these googling the internet, but no real fix.
