Issue Report: /usr/bin/steam becomes unremovable
http://i.imgur.com/qrVBX.png
Noticed after I got this error message when entering password on startup. Tried to remove /usr/bin/steam as root and got: rm: cannot remove '/usr/bin/steam': Operation not permitted
even with -f flag. Permissions not an issue: -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 6011 Dec 1 22:15 steam

sudo chattr -i /usr/bin/steam
I had the same thing in Arch and saw this in the AUR package page.

cheers for the fix
interesting bug though
I'm not sure if this comes from the steam.deb or the Arch package though.

The install script of the Arch package seems to do this. But steam's attempt to bypass the package manager and change files on the system is really bad behavior.

Steam will be changing to rely on the package manager to update this script (therefore Steam won't ask for your password anymore).

Great news! Thanks for listening to our input. :)
It's right decision, thank you!

Yes, definitely the right decision long term. There really are only a couple major package types out there anyway, and if you just released it as a tarball I'm sure every distribution would be willing to do the packaging for you anyway.

Very very very happy about this.
