Note: Steam is Non-Free Proprietary software and does not come bundled with CosmicMod GNU/Linux. Be warned; This can break or gunk up your system

add sys-libs/ncurses -gpm to /etc/portage/packate.use/custom

This use flag can be removed after successfully emerging steam.

Install the Steam repository repository configuration:

root #wget -P /etc/portage/repos.conf/

Sync the Steam repository:

root #emaint sync --repo steam-overlay


The above only needs to be performed once, since the repository will be auto synced during emerge --sync or emaint sync --auto operations.

install the steam-meta ebuild to pull in all Steam related ebuilds:

root #emerge --ask games-util/steam-meta
Just for good practice do a full sync and world update

If you have a Radeon GPU you may have to do the following to get steam to load if you get errors.
