Steam is a content delivery system for linux gaming.

install part 1

funtoo & gentoo have ebuilds in the gamerlay overlay. the steam-meta ebuild was removed.

root # layman -a gamerlay
root # layman -S
root # emerge steam-launcher

install part 2

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:

root # /usr/bin/steam

the installer will prompt you with several questions, once done running the installer command will load the latest version of steam.
