can you upgrade openSuse anytime soon? According to http://code.google.com/p/chromium/is...etail?id=27794 this isn't really available/supported.

Right...it's working, because you installed the libnss libraries on the other box. Did you read the error message, where it tells you that libnss3 isn't installed? Installing the RPM via Zypper would automatically pull down the dependencies.

yes sir the error which came when i run command


i checked in yast2, libnss was installed, but version libnss2.so
i believe libnss3.so(NSS_3.12.3) cant be installed on opensuse10.3. .
i googled it and searched for libnss3.so(NSS_3.12.3) rpm, but package was for openSuSE higher version. .

now i just want to know whether chrome gets install and works on opensuse 10.3. .

n thankz for the reply. .

Again, as you've been asked in other threads, spell out your words. It's "and", and "thanks"...that text-speak garbage isn't pleasant for anyone.

Also, did you read my reply, where I suggested using zypper to install, since that will automatically pull things in? But you're still running the RPM command. Try again.

Suse 10.3 is too old for the 'Google Chrome browser'.

Using "mozilla-nss-3.12.4" ...
/opt/google/chrome/chrome: symbol lookup error: ........
undefined symbol: cairo_format_stride_for_width.

readelf -s /usr/lib/libcairo.so.2.11.5 | grep "cairo_format" :
No "cairo_format" in that old 'libcairo'.
And I don't think, you can change cairo to a contemporary version.

No, it appears that you do. Since you lack common manners about posting, why should anyone try to help you, with that attitude?

Since it's everyone else with the problem (certainly not you for being lazy), you can Google for the bus error, if you want to resolve it.
