Installing Google Chrome or Chromium on Slackware 13.37 64 Bit


I recently started using Slackware and it was all going smoothly until I tried to install Chromium. I follow the instructions on the Slackbuilds website, the compiling process was working fine, but then it ended on a series of errors:
Code:
chmod: cannot operate on dangling symlink `./third_party/openssl/openssl/test/fips_dsatest.c'
chmod: cannot operate on dangling symlink `./third_party/openssl/openssl/test/fips_rngvs.c'
chmod: cannot operate on dangling symlink `./third_party/openssl/openssl/test/fips_aesavs.c'
chmod: cannot operate on dangling symlink `./third_party/openssl/openssl/test/fips_dssvs.c'
chmod: cannot operate on dangling symlink `./third_party/openssl/openssl/test/fips_rsavtest.c'
chmod: cannot operate on dangling symlink `./third_party/openssl/openssl/test/fips_shatest.c'
chmod: cannot operate on dangling symlink `./third_party/openssl/openssl/test/fips_desmovs.c'
chmod: cannot operate on dangling symlink `./third_party/openssl/openssl/test/fips_rsagtest.c'
chmod: cannot operate on dangling symlink `./third_party/openssl/openssl/test/fips_rsastest.c'
chmod: cannot operate on dangling symlink `./third_party/openssl/openssl/test/fips_randtest.c'
chmod: cannot operate on dangling symlink `./third_party/openssl/openssl/test/fips_hmactest.c'
chmod: cannot operate on dangling symlink `./third_party/openssl/openssl/test/fips_test_suite.c'
/usr/bin/env: python: No such file or directory
So if anyone knew a way around this, I would be very grateful

My second question is how to get Google Chrome working. I followed the instructions in the Readme for google-chrome in the extras folder on the DVD, but when I start the build process it only gets this far:

Code:
bash-4.1# ./google-chrome.SlackBuild
./google-chrome.SlackBuild: line 71: ar: command not found
lzma: (stdin): File format not recognized
tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
If anyone can help me resolve this set of errors, I would also be grateful

I have done extensive googling to make sure I'm doing it right and as far as I can tell I'm following all the steps perfectly. It would be nice if someone could give me some pointers as to resolving what I'm doing wrong

Are you logged in as the Root or as your user account?

I am logged in as root. Does installation require me to use a regular user and run the commands through sudo?

It looks like you didn't use full installation?
you missed xz package

Is there a way to install that after installation or should I do a clean install and make sure I get everything installed?

Actually I think he is missing binutils because of this failure:

Code:
./google-chrome.SlackBuild: line 71: ar: command not found
ar is provided by binutils. You should actually already have this package. Did you do a full install?

Just do this :
Code:
slackpkg install slackware
will install all not yet installed packages.
Of course slackpkg must be first installed and configured.
See "man slackpkg" then.

@ruario I unchecked the programming software series, I think the D series, would that be causing the problem?

@Didier Spaier When I put in the command you specified it gave this output:

Code:
bash-4.1# slackpkg install slackware

Looking for slackware in package list. Please wait... DONE

No packages match the pattern for install. Try:

        /usr/sbin/slackpkg reinstall|upgrade
And when pasting the command it suggested, just to be sure it was thorough, it gave me this:

Code:
bash-4.1# /usr/sbin/slackpkg reinstall|upgrade 
bash: upgrade: command not found
So what else should I try to make sure I have installed everything?

"No package math the pattern for install" smean that you have a full install. To check, try "slackpkg remove <some_package_you_don't_need>" then "slackpkg install slackare again". It should propose you to reinstall the removed package.

Oh and "/usr/sbin/slackpkg reinstall|upgrade" suggest you to do "slackpkg reinstall" or "slackpkg upgrade" (the sign "|" stands for "or").

But what should it be installing is my question I don't know how to install whole series of items from the initial software series listed here:

Yes, binutils is part of D. Without this there is no ar and without ar the SlackBuild cannot open the .deb file.

actually you can solve this without reinstalling all of them, but i guess it's too late to say this

I am having the same problem here. Mine was trying to install chromium for Slackware14 with 64 bit version.
I did re-install everything from the DVD which was burnt from the downloaded ISO image. Still the same error messages. Anything I should do to fix it?

Thanks.

@688a Just to make sure, you selected the Full install when installing Slackware? And which version did you install?
