Trying to install Steam on fedora


I am new to Fedora and I have been trying to install steam. After running the command wget http://negativo17.org/repos/fedora-steam.repo, then I edit the file /etc/yum.repos.d/steam-fp.repo, and then run yum -y install steam. I get the following error File contains parsing errors:
file:///etc/yum.repos.d/steam-fp.repo
[line 3] : /fedora-21/.
here is the output of my file:
[steam]
name=Steam RPM packages (and dependencies) for Fedora baseurl=http://spot.fedorapeople.org/steam
/fedora-$releasever/
enabled=1
skip_if_unavailable=1
gpgcheck=0

I'm running Debian myself so can't help with specifics but did you try to install Steam using the instructions from Valve themselves?

Simple. This is the .repo file as 'wget' would show it.
Code:
[fedora-steam]
name=Steam for Fedora
baseurl=http://negativo17.org/repos/steam/fedora-$releasever/$basearch/
enabled=1
skip_if_unavailable=1
gpgkey=http://negativo17.org/repos/RPM-GPG-KEY-slaanesh
gpgcheck=1

[fedora-steam-source]
name=Steam for Fedora - Source
baseurl=http://negativo17.org/repos/steam/fedora-$releasever/SRPMS
enabled=0
skip_if_unavailable=1
gpgkey=http://negativo17.org/repos/RPM-GPG-KEY-slaanesh
gpgcheck=1
Spot the ten differences ;-p

In that case: welcome to your new shiny Linux distribution.

There's a few things you should know and do first:
0) Read your Linux distributions user and admin documentation as it allows you to get up to speed quickly with how things are done "the Linux way".
1) Think then ask if unsure and before doing stuff as that allows you to learn without making major mistakes.
2) Contemplate making backups as that allows you to correct mistakes efficiently.
*) And use an unprivileged account for common daily tasks (not root).
