Not at my home box now, but I think I just made symlink libnssutil3.so.1 pointing to libnssutil3.so.

Could you tell me which mozilla-nss version number you installed?

mozilla-nss-3.12-i486-1ant.tgz
I think that may be the problem.  The tutorial calls for mozilla-nss-3.12.3.  Earlier versions are not going to work with google-chrome, by my understanding.
Try this ...
right click on mozilla-nss-3.12 and remove package, or run rmpackage from the terminal.
Then download mozilla-nss-3.12.3 and install.
Let me know if that is enough.

OK, I was afraid you might.  You will now need to link the requested for file with the one installed.
This unfortunatly, happens when you start with the wrong mozilla-nss.

Here is what we need to do, try and start google-chrome again and post the error here.
I will give you a command to link the library to the correct one on the system.
Then run google-chrome again. This should generate one more error.  Post that error as well.
We will fix it with a link 'ln' as well.
That should do it, I hope.

For future reference, I believe mozilla-nss is in the repository. (maybe in testing right now)

Should he run
ldconfig
as root after creating the symlink? I routinely run it when I install anything unless Gslapt took care of the whole thing.

Sorry, I didn't get back sooner.
First of all Granny may have a good idea there.  I'd even try running ldconfig right now as root, then trying google-chrome again, just to see if that is enough.

Otherwise here is what you do.
Still as root update you locate database with...
slocate -u
It will take a 1/2 minute to finish.
Then staying as root do...
locate libnssutil3*

You may get a couple results but what you are looking for will be in /usr/lib/ and may lood something like...
/usr/lib/libnssutil3.so
Then you want to link the library you have with the name google-chrome is looking for, like so....
ln /usr/lib/libnssutil3.so /usr/lib/libnssutil3.so.1d

When you run google-chrome again you will get a simular error but a different filename.
Do the same steps...
locate libnsswhatever    (libnsswhatever = the name of the missing library that turns up in the error)
Then ln (link) the file name the machine has with the file google-chrome is looking for.
This is a guess but I think google-chrome may error on libnss3.so.1d in which case the link would look like this...
ln /usr/lib/libnss3.so /usr/lib/libnss3.so.1d

Wouldn't it be: ln -s /usr/lib/libnssutil3.so /usr/lib/libnssutil3.so.1d ?
(needs the -s to make it a symbolic link)

ken

this is about to where I'm at. I tried the ldconfig as root to see if that alone would remedy the error but as you can see it was a no go.

root:# ldconfig
t20://home/mikey
root:# google-chrome
/usr/bin/google-chrome: error while loading shared libraries: libnssutil3.so.1d: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
t20://home/mikey
root:# slocate -u
t20://home/mikey
root:# locate libnssutil3.so.1d
t20://home/mikey
root:# locate libnssutil3.so
/opt/swiftfox/libnssutil3.so
/opt/google/chrome/libnssutil3.so
/usr/lib/firefox-3.0.6/libnssutil3.so
/usr/lib/libnssutil3.so
t20://home/mikey
root:#

I'm kind of stuck here as to setting up the symlink as per your suggestion. need a bit of an assist.
btw, I tried to uninstall chrome and reinstall it with the proper nss package but as you can see I'm still not getting it running

thanks
