Google Chrome crashes


I build Google Chrome from extra.
But since a few versions ago Google Chrome crashes without reason!
Where and how I can track the reason of this issue?


EDIT: The Slackbuild wasn't from Slackbuilds.

You could run google-chrome from the command line and post the results here.

Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see google chrome in slackbuilds? I do see chromium if that's what you mean.

Run it from the terminal first and note the error when it next crashes.

Also try running it with strace e.g.

Code:
$ strace -f -o ~/strace_chromium /usr/bin/chromium

There used to be one and it is referenced here - not sure where it's gone on SlackBuilds though!

That references the Chrome SlackBuild provided by Pat himself in extra, not a SlackBuild from SlackBuilds.org.

I had to use pastebin because is too much text.

half of the messages from the log you pasted are
Code:
NVIDIA: could not open the device file /dev/nvidia0 (Operation not permitted).
you probably haven't added the user you're launching chrome with to the default groups needed for a desktop use

ls -la /dev/nvidia0

how have you installed the nvidia drivers? probably the culprit is there.

I just tried google-chrome-26.0.1410.43-x86_64 with the nvidia drivers 313.26 and it's working fine here.

some questions, trying to understand:
- which slackware version are you using?
- it's a full installation?
- which desktop environment?
- are you using a customized ~/.xinitrc?

Sorry!

A: Slackware 14 64 bits

- it's a full installation?
A: I installed everything except KDE packages.

- which desktop environment?
A: fluxbox

- are you using a customized ~/.xinitrc?
A: I don't have ~/.xinitrc


And upgraded google-chrome to google-chrome-26.0.1410.43-x86_64-1 just now

I found a similar topic in the forum (maybe related)

https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...urrent-937022/

can you try if renaming ~/.cache/google-chrome and ~/.config/google-chrome helps?

but I still suspect it's a problem with permissions/nvidia-drivers: can you post the output of glxinfo on pastebin?

try also to create a new user as described in the docs and see if the problem persists with that new user.
