Thread: Google Chromium

  1. #1

    Default Google Chromium

    Hi guys, when Chromium starts, the first tab pops-up a warning:

    You are using an unsupported command-line flag: --no-sandbox. Stability and security will suffer.
    None of my launchers has this flag set. Googling about for this warning gives some answers, most of them re. MSWin 7, including removing the flag from the command line of the launcher (none is set) and adjusting various options in about:flags but none seem to be relevant.

    However if I go to about: in the address box, the following result shows up:


    Code:
    Chromium 24.0.1290.0 (Developer Build 160607)
    OS Linux
    WebKit 537.13 (Unknown URL@0)
    JavaScript V8 3.14.1.2
    Flash 11.2 r202
    User Agent Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.13 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/24.0.1290.0 Safari/537.13 SUSE/24.0.1290.0
    Command Line /usr/lib64/chromium/chromium --no-sandbox --password-store=kwallet --flag-switches-begin --enable-autologin --show-autofill-type-predictions --flag-switches-end
    Executable Path /usr/lib64/chromium/chromium
    Profile Path /home/stephen/.config/chromium/Default

    /usr/lib64/chromium/chromium

    is a 'shared library' and I don't know to to change things within it.

    In that directory /usr/lib64/chromium are two scripts, chromium-generic and chromium-kde, both of which mention this switch:

    SUSE Paste

    SUSE Paste

    I don't know if these are relevant or even being used.


    The above scripts have a line pointing to:

    APPNAME=chromium
    LIBDIR=/usr/lib64/chromium
    GDB=/usr/bin/gdb
    CHROME_SANDBOX=/usr/lib/chrome_sandbox

    The is no such file/dir in /usr/lib/chrome_sandbox

    And further down:

    if [ ! -u $CHROME_SANDBOX ] ; then
    SANDBOX="--no-sandbox"
    fi

    Should I create an empty file there? Or a directory?


    Or should I boycott Google altogether as despite their 'don't be evil' motto they are are evading corporation tax in the UK....

    This may be a specific problem with the 64 bit version; there was a similar problem with the 32 bit version several versions ago. A quick check with my (otherwise identical) 32 bit version shows that /usr/lib/chrome_sandbox does exist and I have the same scripts in /usr/lib/chromium/ but I do not get the same message.

    The file "/usr/lib/chrome_sandbox" is part of the package "chromium-suid-helper". That should have been installed. If it is not there, then install it.

    Thanks guys, but:

    Code:
    sudo zypper in chromium-suid-helper
    root's password:
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    'chromium-suid-helper' is already installed.
    No update candidate for 'chromium-suid-helper-24.0.1290.0-1.19.1.x86_64'. The highest available version is already installed.

    Nothing to do.

    Try the version(s) from the network:chromium repo, they work perfectly.

    - ASUS A73SD, Intel + GT610M Optimus, 6 GB, 2 x 120 GB SSD, openSUSE Factory + KDE

    Maybe uninstall it, and then install it again. Somehow that file (it seems to be the only file in "chromium-suid-helper") has gone missing.

    I thought I had solved this, but it is back. I did a complete uninstall, and re-installed from the chromium repo. Any ideas anyone? Or other forums/resources?

    openSUSE version?

    Uninstalling/Reinstalling is (in by far most of the times) not the way to go.

    Please post output of
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    and
    Code:
    rpm -qa | grep chromium
    - Athlon X6 3.6 GHz, 16 GB DDR3, 64 GB SSD, 3 TB of disks, GT540, openSUSE Factory + KDE

    Hi Knurpht, I was following the advice offered by nrickert in the post above yours.
    Here is zypper lr -d :~> zypper lr -d # | Alias | Name - Pastebin.com

    And :
    Code:
    ~> rpm -qa |grep chromiumchromium-desktop-kde-26.0.1403.0-348.1.x86_64
    chromium-ffmpeg-26.0.1393.0-100.1.x86_64
