Alien's chromium browser


I have not been able to get the Chromium browser from AlienBob's package (chromium-76.0.3809.132-x86_64-1alien) working on my Slackware64-14.2. I figure I am likely missing a library or some other component that is required. I posted the following on Eric's Blog today:

I canít seem to get new (or any) chromium package to run properly on my 14.2 (X86-64). I must be missing libraries. I can get into my local router address 192.168.1.XXX but canít seem to navigate to other URLs. I was getting some Slackware pages to come up but I figure they must have been cached somewhere. I can bring up the settings page but it will crash when I try to change anything! Any idea what I might be missing?


If anyone has similar issues and resolved them please advise.

Thanks!

One thing that occurred to me is that my system is multilib so glibc and other packages are now compat32. I might need a compat32 version of Chromium!

Possibly mozilla-nss (nss/nspr). Since the browser always redirects to https, wrongly versioned nss libraries cause that behaviour that you describe.

I guess you never apply the official patches that are released for Slackware 14.2.

Oh yeah, be sure to keep your patches current, if you're using any of Alien Bob's packages. He assumes you're patched to whatever the official changelog has.

Alien's chromium browser

My bad. I should have reported this as "SOLVED" a while ago. It was indeed fixed by installing the latest mozilla-nss package.
