== install part 1 ==
+
Devices:
funtoo & gentoo have ebuilds in the gamerlay overlay.  the steam-meta ebuild was removed.
+
  
<console>

Asha:

EFI Boot with Grub2, only funtoo in a luks/lvm.
###i## emerge steam-launcher
+
</console>

== install part 2 ==
+
Freya:
steam has its own internal package management system.  Portage will not track its files, or games installed.  the ebuild simply pulls in the steam installer, to run the steam installer:
+
EeePc 1008HA - Atom N720 - 1 GB RAM
 
+
/dev/sda1 boot
<console>###i## /usr/bin/steam</console>
+
/dev/sda2 root
 
+
/dev/sda3 fat32 (EeePc Boot Booster)
the installer will prompt you with several questions, once done running the installer command will load the latest version of steam.
+
 
+
== Troubleshooting ==
+
=== Steam segfaults after 2nd start! ===
+
I do not know much about this behaviour, but I found a workaround.
+
<console>
+
$ ##i##mkdir -p ~/backup
+
$ ##i##mv ~/.local/share/Steam/steamapps ~/backup
+
$ ##i##steam --reset
+
$ ##i##mv ~/backup ~/.local/share/Steam/steamapps
+
</console>
+
It resets all the Steam settings (except that were in Steam Cloud), but does not delete games.
