Don't forget to change "YOURLOGIN" to your Steam login. And also correct the server name, port, world name and login password as desired.

for run steamcmd you must install glibc-32bit (example for opensuse):
zypper in -y glibc-32bit


steamcmd from repo don't work correctly
useradd valheim
mkdir /opt/{Steam,vh_srv}
cd /opt/Steam
curl -sqL "https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/client/installer/steamcmd_linux.tar.gz" | tar zxvf -
./steamcmd.sh

for the first time it is better to run the pre run command manually so as not to run into the system timeout:
cd /opt/vh_srv
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/vh_srv/linux64
/opt/Steam/steamcmd.sh +login YOURLOGIN +force_install_dir /opt/vh_srv +app_update 896660 validate +exit


start & autostart
systemctl daemon-reload
systemctl enable --now valheim.service


UPD: for opensuse you can use package:
zypper ar --refresh obs://home:Werwolf2517 home:Werwolf2517
zypper --gpg-auto-import-keys refresh
zypper install -l -y valheim-server


configuration in file /etc/valheim.conf:
STEAM_LOGIN="anonymous"
PORT="2456"
SERVER_NAME="Valheim dedicated server"
WORLD_NAME="ValheimWorld"
PASSWORD="00000000"


WARNING: the password cannot be shorter!!!
