Dear all

Im pretty new on POM and did an installation on my MacPro (intel)  and installed Steam from the POM installation.

But, it seems that i dont get a network connection because Steam is complaining that it failed to download. But the file steam_client_metrics.bin is always been downloaded and network connections works (checked with the MacOS steam variant).

What am I missing or doing wrong?
