google chrome is not running on Slackware 13.0 64 bit
 
I downloaded google-chrome 64bit (5.0.375.38) from slackbuild and get it installed on slackware 13.0 64bit, it end up with following error when I was trying to launch it :

Code:

# google-chrome
/usr/bin/google-chrome: /usr/lib64/libz.so.1: no version information available (required by /usr/bin/google-chrome)
/usr/bin/google-chrome: /usr/lib64/libpng12.so.0: no version information available (required by /usr/bin/google-chrome)
/usr/bin/google-chrome: /opt/google/chrome/libnss3.so.1d: version `NSS_3.12.3' not found (required by /usr/bin/google-chrome)
/usr/bin/google-chrome: /opt/google/chrome/libnss3.so.1d: version `NSS_3.12' not found (required by /usr/bin/google-chrome)

I also got GConf,ORBIT2 and mozilla-nss installed, I don't know what else I missed, any advise will be appreciated!!

That's because you are trying to call google-chrome as root while you logged in as an unpriviliged user into your Window Manager.

I always seem to get the first two lines that you showed, but they don't seem to cause me any problems. For your second two lines, are you running the latest version of mozilla-nss?

The "google-chrome.SlackBuild" is not making links to the mozilla-nss
files, but to /usr/lib64/seamonkey/<files> .

If you have no 'seamonkey' installed, the links libnss3.so.1d, etc.
are not valid, and you will get the error :
/opt/google/chrome/libnss3.so.1d: version `NSS_3.12.3' not found

Suggest : install seamonkey.
Editing 'google-chrome.SlackBuild' to point to the mozilla-nss
"/usr/lib64/<files>" : May be some more complicated ? Wrong version ?

Google-chrome works perfect with the /usr/lib64/seamonkey/lib** files.
......
P.S. : Doing user stuff as root is asking for trouble,
as already said by @ ChrisAbela.

hi ChrisAbela, I am quite new to Linux, what did you mean by "logged in as an unpriviliged user into your Window Manager", how do I log in as 'root' into your Window Manager? thanks

Try also installing seamonkey-solibs-2.0.6 from Slackware.
