Google Chrome (Latest) - No sync, No HTML5 Youtube (Slackware64-current)
I am back on Slackware64-current after 2 weeks on Fedora and in that short time, I grew very fond of Google chrome and its Syncing ability to my Google account and the ability to play youtube videos without flash installed.
I have tried building the stable, unstable and beta versions on Slackbuilds.org but when I sync I get "Cannot connect to server" and youtube asks for Flash.
Both features worked flawlessly on Fedora.
If anyone has any advice, I would greatly appreciate it!
Really? Well, I must have missed something, then. Downloaded the google-chrome-8.0.552.215-x86_64 rpm file and used google-chrome.SlackBuild script to install it; no flashplayer included. Had to download the 64-bit version of it on Adobe.
I don't know if this will help you: since the seamonkey-solibs-2.1b1 updatade in the -current tree, my google-chrome didn't work as it should - it showed something about "Unknown error". To solve this, I downloaded the mozilla-nss-nspr pack, compiled it and installed, then google-chrome was back on track. With this I could also remove the seamonkey-solibs package, since mozilla-nss-nspr have those same libs.
