Daniel, here is the update script: http://forum.vectorlinux.com/index.php?topic=10210.msg65875#msg65875
18.104.22.168 was released today
i think that the issue with chrome slowing down is a flash plugin issue. i run with plugins off, the way it ships from google. runs absolutely great on my pII 300 running vector standard 6.0. no slow down issues, also running it on the ubuntu machine at work for the last couple of months, i can leave it up all night without running into the memory leak that firefox has had since 1.5. but again without flash plugins turned on. i think that has got to be where the problem is. i noticed it slowing down on this old machine the one time i tested --enable-plugins.
i don't want flash running anyway, this is just a utility machine, check my mail, do a few forum posts. maybe some light scripting. every week, chrome gets better. i'm looking forward to print capability. then i can move to chrome for every machine i maintain at work.
as a side note, i talked my boss into testing vl6.0 standard on one machine at work. said if all goes well, he will look into getting authorization to add 4 more vl computers, for a total of 5. chrome was a major road block, but i've got that solved now.
