The Steam client is 32bit last I checked. It looks like it's a 32bit Debian package. This means it may be possible to emulate it, but I am not sure it will work.

For more info, see these threads:

Default Steam
Hey can we get a Steam PBI? I think this could be an important piece of software for somebody thinking to move to PCBSD . Thank you.

That is indeed the problem.
At the moment, the FreeBSD linux emulation layer is a bit out-of-date (Fedora Core 10), so it cannot run Steam since it requires some of the newer (Ubuntu?) libraries. There is currently a push to try and update the linux compatibility layer in FreeBSD, but I am not sure what the current status on that is.

On the plus side, if you install Steam through Wine it actually works quite well... :-)

I'm very curious if steam does get ported to FreeBSD through the linuxulator, will it run games faster than linux?

Possible. I have been playing Heroes of Newerth through the linuxulator, I can't say it was faster, but I had less stuttering and everything seemed smoother than playing it on Fedora.

I was using a nvidia card of course

Default freebsd server
apologies for the hijack

we have a decent tf2 server running on freebsd in a jail

often, when updating we get the message

Unable to determine CPU Frequency. Try defining CPU_MHZ.

this happens when the jail starts and this command has not run on the host

kldload linprocfs
mount -t linprocfs linproc /usr/jails/jailname/proc

when the jail starts there is a small set of /proc files, but the full set including /proc/cpuinfo only shows if the linprocfs mount is run in the host with the kernel module linprocfs loaded (confirm with kldstat)

Using Wine cannot be the answer for any game to play it native with OpenGL support
