So I wanted to try out Chrome, used the package manager and found
google-chrome, for whatever reason this opens but I couldn’t navigate to any pages, seemed to have trouble displaying anything I entered as the url, sort of like top bit was a white square, tried to navigate to another tab and noticed it wasn’t refreshing the render area for a webpage, looked kind of glitchy. I’m not sure if this is a common thing or due to the fact I’m in the middle of setting up VGA passthrough or something else.
I wasn’t in the mood to try figure it out so I thought I’d just grab
chromium instead, saw
chromium-gtk3 and figured that would support the theme I’m using better and chose that. It took about 20 minutes or so to download everything and it’s been going for I don’t know maybe over an hour building the packages, it’s at about 9000/18000ish packages?(can’t see what the labels for each columns were). There doesn’t appear to be a way to stop this and the CPU usage is having an impact on using the system, I wasn’t aware it’d take this long to build/install. I’m using the UI/app instead of terminal.
Will updates also take this long or is it just the first time building this?
