Google Chrome on Bluewhite64


I noticed that there's a Google Chrome package in the packages section of the Bluewhite64 website but when I installed it I get errors of a missing libnss3 dependency. There is some libnss stuff in /usr/lib, but not what it's looking for. Does anyone know more about this topic?

Will the libnss3.so in firefox work ?

Then something like this may do the trick :
1) export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib64/firefox
2) <the-command-to-start-google-chrome>

You can make a "start script" with the two commands.

Good thinking! I like it... but it doesn't quite work.
Chrome is looking for libnss3.so.1d whereas the file in that folder is just libnss3.so
I'm gonna try making a bunch of symlinks and see if that solves it

This isn't going anywhere... I've created links with the file names it wants for the libs in that folder but now it's wanting a different version of gconf... I think the system this was built on is just too different from my computer.
Anyone know where I can download the source to build it myself?

Slackware 13 - 64 Bits

'libnss3.so.1d' : Yes, now I remember. Those links,
libnss3.so.1d libnssutil3.so.1d libsmime3.so.1d libssl3.so.1d
are inside "Google Chrome Beta" : /opt/google/chrome/ .
But they are not present in all versions.
With a previous version, it was just a matter of starting
the app correctly.
Works on most Linux. But no package "libnss" in Slackware.
So you can either create the links yourself: cd /opt/google/chrome/
# ln -s /usr/lib64/firefox/libnss3.so libnss3.so.1d ,,, etc. etc.

Or create a new package ...

The Slackbuild script makes those links to /lib64/seamonkey
But seamonkey-<slack-13-version> has no libnssutil3.so.
We will then of course use firefox : cd /usr/lib64/
# ln -s firefox-<version> firefox
.....
Creating a package is easy, a binary .deb is "repacked" :
1) http://slackbuilds.org/repository/13...google-chrome/
> google-chrome.tar.gz
2) http://www.google.com/chrome/eula.html
> Please choose ""64 bit .deb (For Debian/Ubuntu)""

.. And edit google-chrome.SlackBuild, line 27 to
ARCH=${ARCH:-x86_64}

Line 53 to :
ar p $CWD/google-chrome-beta_current_$............

Line 64 , replace seamonkey with firefox :
ln -s /usr/lib${LIBDIRSUFFIX}/firefox/${MLIB%.?d} ........
.....

Also required to run google-chrome: Gconf http://slackbuilds.org/
.. And Gconf requires Orbit2.
.. .....
