• Chromium 68.0.3440.84-2 "Aw Snap" on Google Sign-In page


    @developers

    Guys, something went completely wrong with the latest set of system updates…

    When I try to sign into my Google account Chromium dies with a “Aw Snap” and keeps on "Snap"ing till the browser is restarted.

    Downgrading just Chromium alone doesn’t solve the problem because of some deeper dependencies within the “icu” stuff.

    No matter what I try … I can’t sign in to Google in without Chromium losing its marbles.

    For the time being I got s**t back to work by downgrading the latest set of updates, which were …

    webkit2gtk (2.20.3-1 -> 2.20.3-2)
    qt5-webkit (5.212.0alpha2-18 -> 5.212.0alpha2-19)
    qt5-webengine (5.11.1-2 -> 5.11.1-3)
    qt5-location (5.11.1-1 -> 5.11.1-2)
    qt4 (4.8.7-24 -> 4.8.7-25)
    poppler-qt5 (0.64.0-1 -> 0.67.0-1)
    qt5-base (5.11.1-1 -> 5.11.1-2)
    poppler-glib (0.64.0-1 -> 0.67.0-1)
    libreoffice-fresh (6.0.6-1 -> 6.0.6-2)
    raptor (2.0.15-8 -> 2.0.15-9)
    libzmf (0.0.2-3 -> 0.0.2-4)
    libvisio (0.1.6-3 -> 0.1.6-4)
    libqxp (0.0.1-2 -> 0.0.1-3)
    libqalculate (2.6.1-1 -> 2.6.1-2)
    libmspub (0.1.4-2 -> 0.1.4-3)
    libical (3.0.3-2 -> 3.0.3-3)
    libe-book (0.1.3-2 -> 0.1.3-3)
    libcdr (0.1.4-3 -> 0.1.4-4)
    harfbuzz-icu (1.8.5-1 -> 1.8.6-1)
    ghostscript (9.23-1 -> 9.23-2)
    cups-filters (1.20.4-1 -> 1.20.4-2)
    poppler (0.64.0-1 -> 0.67.0-1)
    chromium (68.0.3440.84-1 -> 68.0.3440.84-2)
    openjpeg2 (2.3.0-2 -> 2.3.0-3)
    harfbuzz (1.8.5-1 -> 1.8.6-1)
    libxml2 (2.9.8-3 -> 2.9.8-4)
    boost-libs (1.67.0-6 -> 1.67.0-7)
    icu (61.1-1 -> 62.1-1)
    

    So… thanks for the great breakage… this was total fun to deal with when you need to get to your god-damn e-mail account.

  • Just spotted on the Arch Forums…
    https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=239416

    Well, at least we now also know that it affects Firefox as well - and the guy who made that post also narrowed down the packages.

    Though… chromium-widevine can be scratched off the list as our “Antergos” version (1:4.10.1146.0-2) doesn’t seem to give any problem.

    Unless Antergos developers packed whatever is causing the issue, they are not responsible to whatever error you’re facing.

    Antergos is a rolling release distro that uses Arch (rolling release distro) as base.

    If a problem appears and many people stumble at it, usually Arch team quickly fix those stuff. They’re awesome. The same for Antergos team.

    Wow.

    Well thanks for pointing out this “no liability” declaration, that’s the most ridiculous excuse for lacking Q/C (be it Arch or Antergos) I’ve ever read.

    Never mind, come tomorrow morning I’ll research Manjaro or Solus as a replacement because I’ve got work to do and ain’t got time to fix breakage for which no one is responsible.

    You have my permission to delete my account, our business is concluded.

    For me it is not reproducable here on 6 different Antergos installations.
    And as long as no one knows what is the reason for this, no one can sign responsible for it.

    And i do not like the harsh tone also, but i do undestand that it is may caused by frustration.

    And as @fernandomaroto on a rolling release system it can happen all the time that there are some breakage.

    Responsibility here means to solve issues as fast as we can, and this is what both Archlinux and Antergos are doing, but they all need the community to provide logs and issues, and take responsibility too, in the name of community driven free software.

    You’ll note, if you take the time to wade through the legalese, that both Microsoft and Apple take the same position. At least here you get a nice, polite, and honest answer and usually at least an attempt at a work-around. I don’t personally know about Apple, but with MS you get the royal run-around for an hour or so and a vague promise about a future update and get left feeling like someone forgot the Vaseline – and these people charge you a lot of your hard-earned money for it! Getting heavy-handed with them just gets you a dial tone, as well.

    Antergos (or pretty much any Linux distro) is free and, oddly enough, much better supported – but you have to make an effort. No one on this board (or most of the various Linux boards) are getting paid for this and really don’t deserve your s***.
