• Chromium 66.0.3359.117-1 Produces Segfault Error

    Chromium started behaving strangely today when I turned my computer on. I decided to restart it to see if that made any difference, but it wouldn’t start again. It produced “Segmentation fault (core dumped)” when running from Terminal. Reinstalling did not help, although I’m not sure if there are any configuration files I should have tried deleting. I’m not sure what Chromium stores in terms of that or even where it stores them.

    Only a handful of other applications do this, all of which are games, though they have always produced this error message on Linux. Chromium on the other hand has worked flawlessly on all distros that I’ve used. I tried Vivaldi since it’s based on (an albeit older version of) Chromium and it worked fine.

    I need Chromium to work again as soon as possible. I’ve tried running it with numerous flags and numerous combinations of flags to no avail. I’m going to hazard a guess and say that a dependency of Chromium has updated before Chromium was ready and it now no longer works. According to Pamac, the update was put in today. I usually just open Pamac and let any updates run in the background and don’t usually bother to check unless I’m expecting an update for a given program. The update must have gone in fine though, as reinstalling Chromium worked even if the browser does not.

    Anyone got any ideas on how to fix it?
