Hi, yesterday evening before I went to bed I was starting an update (that run well except for chrome, but that's nothing new).
The problem is that now I can't start Steam anymore. When I try to start it I get the following error:
Code:

Running Steam on gentoo  64-bit
STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled by the user
Error: You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run:
libc.so.6
mktemp: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib32/libc.so.6: invalid ELF header
Error:
cat: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib32/libc.so.6: invalid ELF header
Press enter to continue:


However the libc.so.6 is there in my /usr/lib32/ folder. Because I thought that there may be a possible corruption fo the shared library, I reemerged glibc (I have abi_x86_32 set as a global use flag), but I'm still Steam just refuses to start. Do you have any ideas what may cause this?

This is saying the bundled libc is currupt.
Might be worth running the steam repair
