I'm running 23.0.1271.97 here with no problems at all. I'm scratching my head on this one. Have you installed the google related package that is on extra? It contains a necessary library (PAM related). As for the errors, I get the same thing, so it should be fine.

I went back to /extra and reinstalled the pam package and used the /extra chrome slackbuild with a fresh a chrome 64-bit .deb file.

Nothing. Same result -- it makes absolutely no sense. It's so weird that I have the same setup (it sounds like) but am getting a different result than you stormtracknole. Are you on 64-bit? I'm not using any 32-bit compatibility either.

I'm on 64 bit also. I don't understand either.

Do you mind posting the SlackBuild file here? Also, have you tried using a different desktop environment, like XFCE? Just for the heck of it.

Here is the slackbuild I used.

http://mirrors.slackware.com/slackwa...ome.SlackBuild

I have tried rebuilding flash as well using the flashplayer-plugin provided in the /extra folder that matches the address above. No luck.

I have not tried a different desktop environment yet -- but I will.

Ah, I have never used the SlackBuild before. I honestly didn't know there was one on the official Slackware mirror. Let me give you the SlackBuilds that I use. I don't take credit for them as I believe someone posted these right here on LQ. What I did do was for the script to build from the rpm instead of the deb package. I was getting poor flash performance with the deb package, but by using the rpm, those problems were fixed.

First, download and run this script as root:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3240110/slac...s/chromeUpdate

Major credit goes to someone here in LQ for creating that script. After a lot of tinkering around, I left the script mostly untouched. What I added was at the very bottom which in addition to download the dep package, it will download the rpm. As you can see, this is for a 64-bit box. Feel free to look around and adjust anything as you see fit. The script NEEDS the deb package in order to work correctly. Once you have installed the tgz package, you can keep running this script to check for new Chrome updates. Very handy!

Now for the second part, download this modified SlackBuild script:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3240110/slac...SlackBuild-rpm

Again, I don't take credit for this script. I basically modified to use the rpm instead of the deb. I'm sure it wasn't the cleanest way to do it, but it works.

Try that and see if it now works. It should since I have been using that script to build Chrome for quite a while now and I have never had a problem.

Thanks. I will check out your build scripts but honestly I really feel I shouldn't need to have to use specialized scripts to make a common program work. I guess I take some responsibility for living on the edge and using -current versus stable. Just seems like it should work with /extra and/or slackbuilds.org. have you considered submitting your build scripts to slackbuilds.org?

No, they weren't mine per say. I really don't know why it is not working with the script provided in /extra. Glancing over it, it is very different compared to the other script. Gremlins is about the only other explanation. ;-)

Nope, same result. Used your scripts.

It's driving me nuts. It works perfectly in firefox and opera. Also tried under xfce. No help there either.

I'm stumped too. I don't know what else to try. I don't have any problems on my box at all.
