G'day
I have been using Steam successfully on Gentoo for months... I ran into issues a while back but fixed it by starting steam with STEAM_RUNTIME=1 steam
which worked fine... until now... a steam update came through the other day I noticed and now it no longer runs... here is the error



kaddy@genbox ~ $ STEAM_RUNTIME=1 steam
Running Steam on gentoo 64-bit
STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled by the user
Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(1378500910_client)
Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(1378500910_client)

[0914/210333:WARNING:proxy_service.cc(958)] PAC support disabled because there is no system implementation

any ideas?
cheers in advance

pretty much, depending on where your steam is installed (for me it is ~/.local/share/Steam so I just had to rm ~/.steam)
its the beta client, screwed up. so remove the troublesome files and revert to the normal. MAKE sure you disable beta as well

Naib you Legend... deleting the appcache folder fixed the problem... I thought that perhaps
the new steam updates borked it and would require an updated ebuild since it was complaining about
dbus (which was running) etc.... Solved
