SteamOS Beta is the first public release of our Linux-based operating system. The base system draws from Debian 7, code named Debian Wheezy. After installing SteamOS for the first time log onto the resulting system using the Gnome session with the following details:
- Account: steam
- Password: steam
Run steam, accept the EULA. The system will do rest of the setup. Logoff the steam account. Next login with the following:
- Account: desktop
- Password: desktop
From a terminal window, run the following command:
This will prompt for a password – enter desktop. This script will perform the post-install customizations, then reboot. When the system reboots and comes back online you should have a functioning SteamOS install.
