Trying to install Google Chromium Web Browser - not quite succeeding...


Hello:

When, as su, I do: ./chromium.SlackBuild I get the attached terminal output.

I'm not sure what to do with this information.

Any explanations would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Is this normal??

Hello:

I finally got it installed.

To do so, I had to download Slackbuilds and their sources for:
  1. chromium
  2. GConf
  3. gnome-keyring
  4. libevent
  5. libtasn1
  6. ORBit2
  7. yasm

I then ran ./appname.SlackBuild for each and then did installpkg /tmp/appname for each.

When I did the ./chromium.SlackBuild it took a good 45 minutues to complete!

Is that normal?

Thanks,

If you compile Google Chrome from SlackBuilds, it will take less than 1 minute i guess

What you did was actually compile Chromium, so yes it is normal that it takes 45 minutes. I think what you wanted was 'Google Chrome' which is just a repackaging of already compiled binaries.

I swear under oath that it took at least 45 minutes for ./chromium.SlackBuild to complete - I actually went and took a nap!

May be I didn't do it correctly?

Thanks,

Hi:

I wanted the 'Chromium' browser, not 'Google Chrome'. There is a difference - at least the icon is different.

May be they are the same other than that - I don't know. I have attached the Chromiun About screen.

Thanks,

I am marking this as solved.

I think I did what tacticalbread said above, i.e. compiled chromium.

I don't know if there is a better way to get and install the 'chromium web browser'.

Anyway, the 'chromium web browser' is installed and working.

Thanks to all,

Chromium requires you to compile, and yes, it takes a VERY long time. 45 minutes seems about right to me.

Running the SlackBuild script for Chrome just takes the pre-compiled binaries, which Google provides as a Debian package, extracts the binaries, and repackages them into a Slackware package. That's why it is so fast. There is no actual compilation of code going on when installing Chrome.
