Chromium
« on: May 19, 2014, 10:22:57 pm »
I would like to know if there is any way that Chromium could be included in the repositories?  Sorry if this has been asked before.  I asked over at the Salix forum, but they have no plans to add it as a choice in gslapt.

Thanks!

I found a slack package in the Slack repo, but it has... issues.

I, too, would like a Chromium package as well. I don't use it, but it would be helpful to have it on hand when I need to test things.

I'm currently building chromium for 7.1.  It is a monster to build, so it will take a few hours.  If everything goes well, we should have a package in the untested repo soon.  Build link: http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/buildbot/builders/chromium/builds/4

Thank you so much!   I really do appreciate it.   ;D

The build was succesful.  The package is in untested.  Test it and let us know if you get any issues with it

Semi-good test on my system.

It upgraded sqlite and mozilla-nss in the progress.
The .desktop lists the executable as '/usr/bin/chromium' but is actually found in '/usr/lib/chromium/chromium'.

Quick test of browser indicates proper operation.  :)

Bombs on 64-bit. Wrong location in chromium.desktop as described by Nightflier. Manual attempt via terminal results in:

retired1:$ /usr/lib64/chromium/chromium
/usr/lib64/chromium/chromium: /usr/lib64/libnss3.so: version `NSS_3.14.3' not found (required by /usr/lib64/chromium/chromium)

Did this upgrade mozilla-nss?.  If not, could you upgrade it via slapt-get andd try to launch again?

I re-built the package, fixed the path to the binary and tested on 64-bit myself.  Seems to work.

Anyone who wants to try out the new package, use slapt-get or gslapt to remove your current package, and install the new one. 

NOTE:  Package name did not change, so it will not show up as an update.
NOTE2:  Package must be installed with gslapt or slapt-get with the untested repository enabled.  Otherwise, it will not find the Mozilla-nss package it needs.

Posting from it now. Installed on 64-bit Light A0.2. No additional packages were needed.

Can some one post instructions for the lame on how to install?

I added http://bitbucket.org/VLCore/vl71/ as a package source but it fails to pull.

"This package source failed or is not available.  Do you want to disable..."

Thank you,
Dan

You need to enable the testing repo in the glsapt sources.

The path you tried is only information about the package.

You can get the package here:

BigPaws,

I got the same error when adding the url as a source.

Any ideas?
