Does anyone have a package bundled up for Google Chrome yet?


I'm looking to find a Slackware package for Google Chrome. Alternatively, I'll just create one and make it available, but what's up with Linuxpackages.net???

The search engine over there is almost as if there aren't any Slackware 13.0 packages? Is there something wrong with the site?

I read about the virtual homelessness and then getting back into the groove of things, but it seems that something is broken over there.

Good. Perhaps it will stop people using packages with no quality control and get more people to use (and contribute to) slackbuilds.org instead.

The only prebuilt packages that can be trusted are those by AlienBob and rworkman.

Well that's not actually true, although I know what you're saying and certainly appreciate the caveat as a valid warning when acquiring packages from untrusted sources.

By the same token, I would also warn RPM users of the same potentially dangerous possibilities when surfing rpmfind.net

But there are more people than just AlienBob and Robby that bundle up trustworthy packages

Whilst I, too, offer carte blanche to those two stalwarts, I agree with 'bathory' that the folks at slacky.eu aren't too shabby themselves....

cheers,

Well as far as I know just about anyone can submit packages to slacky.eu. I trust alienBob and rworkman because they are part of the dev team.

Still, at the end of the day it is much better to grab a slackbuild and build it yourself.

I'm running the Google-chrome package created by using the build script at SBo. I avoid untrusted Slackware package sites.

I got Chrome off SlackBuilds yesterday. Other than having to install two other libraries before it would work, it works perfectly. And as long as you get the right two packages, you should be fine.

I was using linuxpackages.net for a while when I first started using Slackware, but it's just easier now to use SlackBuilds because of the lack of variety and lack of 13-compatible packages at linuxpackages...

I've built my Chrome out of the Google's RPM package
rpm2tgz

as simple as that , and it failed to run, of course...
then i added this script:
Code:
#! /bin/bash

#####
#
# the patch for google chrome on Slackware 13.0
# The rpm for fedora was converted with rpm2tgz ;-)
# GPL v3 apply. Cest73@gmail.com
#
####



libdir="/usr/lib/"
finddir="/usr/lib/seamonkey/"
EXE="chrome"
DIR="/opt/google/chrome/"
lst=$(ldd $DIR$EXE | grep "not found" | sed s/" => not found"/""/)
echo missing: [$lst]
echo "chrome executable:" $EXE
echo "chrome dir:" $DIR
# this was for slackware 13.0
# lst="libnss3.so.1d libnssutil3.so.1d libsmime3.so.1d libssl3.so.1d libplds4.so.0d  libplc4.so.0d libnspr4.so.0d"

for f in $lst
    do
    d=`echo $f | sed s/"\..d$"/""/`
    echo loacating "[$d]"
    h=`find $finddir -name $d`
    if [ -z $h ]; then
	echo not found!
	echo "missing [$h]!"
	else
	l=$libdir$f
	echo found!
	echo "symlinking[$h] to [$l]"
	rm -v $l
	ln -vs $h $l
	fi
    done
    
    
echo "done."
i call it chrome-fail.sh

Since it was a beta, i expect the annoyance to change accordingly?
EDIT:

Ah! once You update seamonkey, re-run the script?

They are both significant Slackware contributors though. You can be quite certain they are trusted and meet quality standards. Slackbuilds is also nice because you can look at the build script and build it yourself, that way the only person you can doubt is yourself.
