google chrome: zlib and nss errors
« on: January 23, 2011, 06:30:52 pm »
Google Chrome now fails to start when I click on the icon. I started it from the terminal to see the error messages and I got these:

/usr/bin/google-chrome: /usr/lib/ no version information available (required by /usr/bin/google-chrome)
/usr/bin/google-chrome: /usr/lib/ no version information available (required by /usr/bin/google-chrome)
/usr/bin/google-chrome: /opt/google/chrome/ version `NSS_3.12.3' not found (required by /usr/bin/google-chrome)
/usr/bin/google-chrome: /opt/google/chrome/ version `NSS_3.12' not found (required by /usr/bin/google-chrome)

I have tried reinstalling mozilla-nss and zlib. I also updated Google Chrome. Nothing has worked so far. I think it started doing this after I installed wine (which did something with nss I think). Does anyone know how to fix this?
The following sentence is true. The previous sentence is false.

i figure wine installation may have upgraded or downgraded some packages. my scripts at contain links to the correct slackware packages to run chrome. unfortunately the version numbers are hard coded into chrome so you have to have the specific version installed. just look thru my old posts for the chrome install scripts. they are pretty well commented so look for the section labeled nss.
