how to "user namespace sandboxing for ungoogled chromium"


Hi, I wanted to download and use portable ungoogled chromium on slackware current. https://ungoogled-software.github.io...mium-binaries/

I only managed to run it with --no-sandbox. Then i noticed there is a newer ungoogled chromium package from alienbob so I installed it but when i try to run it still says "Running as root without --no-sandbox is not supported"

Is this happening because im trying to run it as root (I didn't make user account yet) or because namespace sandboxing is somehow disabled and I have to enable it(how do i do that?) I would like to be able to run it as root with namespace sandboxing.

the exact error I get is:

[5743:5743:0412/192331.085240:ERROR:zygote_host_impl_linux.cc(90)] Running as root without --no-sandbox is not supported. See https://crbug.com/638180.

It is because you're running it as root. More and more software are getting exceptions in their code to prevent running the software as root because it opens up massive security issues.
