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

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

Thanks Daniel; It was 4:30 in the morning when I wrote that. My newborn just was not sleeping last night and I though I could handle answering the question. Guess not.

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

smelm0, try the steps as Daniel suggested with the '-s' option.  Such as ln -s /usr/lib/libnssutil3.so /usr/lib/libnssutil3.so.1d

I'm going to see friends over the Weekend, will be back on Monday.  If you still have not found a solution I will try to recreate it on a Virtual Machine and see what the steps are to dig our way out.

I am having a different problem installing google chrome following the proceedure.

On a new install everything seems to be going OK  but when I run google chrome from the command line it does not connect to the internet and I get a string of errors in the terminal:

Any ideas?

vl:$ google-chrome

Which Vectorlinux version are you installing Google-chrome to VL-light, standard, etc.

I have not run it to error messages such as you are seeing.
It is possible that they have changed something within Google-chrome download itself.  Let me try a test run on my end and I'll get back to you.
btw, this is the method I use for Standard.  http://www.opensourcebistro.com/Tutorial/VL60/10.Browsers/gchrome/gchrome2.htm

Thanks,

That is essentially the method I used. Only difference I can see is that I installed mozilla-nss using mc.

I just did a fresh installation of google chrome on a newly installed VL6.0 standard as per the previously posted tut and it still works.  My guess it that the mozilla-nss version is potentially the problem.  It is very important to use version number 3.12.3.  Early versions just will not work. Even version number 3.12. will fail.  Double check which version you installed.  If you installed an earlier version number you need to removepkg it and also remove all traces of the google-chrome install.  Get the mozilla-nss version 3.12.3 here, install it, then install google-chrome again.

Let me know if this is a possible solution.

I installed mozilla-nss-3.12.3-i486-1alien.tgz so I don't think that is the problem.

I took a closer look at your error message.  It looks very similar to the error I've only got when doing an install on Vectorlinux-light.  The trouble there was that google-chrome can not write to /dev/shm/ because of permisions.

Check out the step in this tut involving 'chmod 777 /dev/shm/', it may solve your problem.
