• Chromium is broken.


    I have two computers both with Antergos gnome and just did updates on both and in those updates there was an update to chromium browser, after the update finished chromium no longer opens on either machine. I uninstalled it and re-installed, but still broke and that’s on wayland and xorg. Also, tried on another user account, but nothing. Thought I’d let you know.

    Cheers

  • Works on my machines. Have you tried launching it from terminal and see if there’s error messages?

  • yes downgrading to version before is the workaround:

    chromium-65.0.3325.181-7-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

    wget https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/c/chromium/chromium-65.0.3325.181-7-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
    sudo pacman -U chromium-65.0.3325.181-7-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
    

    or use downgrade app:

    sudo pacman -S downgrade
    downgrade chromium

  • Downgraded.

    Thank you

  • Thank you, downgrading fixed this for me. As a newer Linux user, this taught me something cool, the ability to revert to a previously working state.

    How do you know when it’s safe to take the update after this? Should I just make sure the version number is newer and hope for the best?

  • we will give information here, as we find a solution, or update sove it…

  • On LTS kernel 4.14.34 chromium 66.0.3359.117 works OK here.

    How does the problem show itself? Doesn’t it start at all? Or crashes?

  • I don’t have any plugins on chromium…

  • @joekamprad said in Chromium is broken.:

    chromium
    [1] 31966 segmentation fault (core dumped) chromium

  • I do a fresh install without any configuration, and it segfaults aka crashes

  • I’m using latest chromium now as we write and speak. No problems so far.

  • $  chromium --version
    Chromium 66.0.3359.117 Arch Linux
    $ uname -r
    4.14.34-1-lts
    $

    I have that config file and chromium works.
    The only thing I have there is the –homepage option.

  • Chromium won’t even open for me after upgrade. I see the same segfaults. Haven’t tried it on the LTS kernel. I’m curious now…

  • confirm also on 3 other machines… moving that file out of the way and chromium starts…

  • may it is caused by something inside the file… i do not check it

  • --user-data-dir=/home/antergos/.config/chromium/Default --homepage=http://antergos.com
    
    
    ls: cannot access '/home/antergos/.config/chromium/Default': No such file or directory
    

    ;)

    So this is causing the segfault… dir is taken from liveiso and not changed to installed user…

    changing this to installed user chromium starts…
