The Chrome-version for 7.0 final is getting stale....
« on: October 16, 2014, 06:46:46 am »

Google itself (mainly: Gmail..) has been whinging for some time, it's not fully supporting this version ( Version 24.0.1312.57 ) anymore.
Which is a shame since I require a reasonable up-to-date Flash-plugin.(Which means I got Chrome shoved down my throat...)

I have built the latest stable version of google-chrome (38.0.2125.104) for all vector versions.  Please add the untested repository to your slapt-getrc and install it via slapt-get or gslapt.

If you have 7.0, you also need to add the 'testing' repository.

32-bit repo URL is: http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/veclinux-7.0/x86/
64-bit repo URL is: http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/veclinux-7.0/x86_64

Post the results of your testing here so the package can be moved to the stable repositories if all is well with it.

7.1 is good, but 7.0 32-bit:
/opt/google/chrome/google-chrome: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.15' not found (required by /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome)

I think this is a bug in GCC, but being that 7.0 has an outdated version, I doubt it's worth fixing it.
