Has anyone managed to get Chromium or Google-Chrome working on a 32 bit machine?
Well I cant.
The Chrome Slackbuild included in Slack 14.2 in Extras tells me to download the Chrome 32 bit download but it has been discontinued.

So onto the Chromium, which I downloaded from the Alien website and installed using Pkgtool. Sofar so good but when I fired it up I get:

[end of stack trace]
Calling _exit(1). Core file will not be generated.
[1876:1878:0512/] NSS_VersionCheck("3.26") failed. NSS >= 3.26 is required. Please upgrade to the latest NSS, and if you still get this error, contact your distribution maintainer.
Chromium fires up but with very limited function.

What to do, anyone any ideas what the problem is and where can I get NSS
and will it help because I've downloaded all the NSS related programs available in Sbopkg and that hasn't helped.

You did not install the patches which are available for Slackware 14.2.
Of course you need to install all of these pactch packages ASAP, but in particular you are missing
