Google-chrome crashing X after -current update
 
Did an update to current this morning (2/23) -- am getting an X11 crash when I try to run google-chrome. I updated google-chrome and got the same result.

FYI. Anyone else run into this issue?

I did. In my case I've got an nvidia card. Re-installing nvidia-driver (I use sbopkg) reset the links that were needed.

smoooth103,

I just installed Google Chrome on my updated Slackware-current box. All is well here. I'm running an Intel graphics card on my -current box.

Reinstalled new Nvidia drivers did work for me. Seems bizarre to me that this is the solution -- but hey, thanks.

Not so bizarre... check out http://docs.slackware.com/howtos:sla...considerations for some background

Just seems that in my typical experience that the video driver generally effects the successful start of X or all X programs, not just one program Google-chrome. That's why it seems bizarre to me. Although I've had quite a few quirky behavior type problems with google-chrome since about version 20 -- so I guess this is more of the same.

Every time you install an update for X and Mesa, it's recommended to reinstall nvidia driver again

rkelsen 02-23-2013 11:45 PM

WillySR and AlienBob are right. The libGL files which conflict with the NVidia driver are reinstalled whenever you upgrade the Mesa package.

This doesn't cause any apparent problems until a program tries to use accelerated graphics.

Ah, I see now -- thanks all.
