Thread: 64 bit chromium anyone?

  1. #1

    Thumbs up 64 bit chromium anyone?

    I compiled a 64 bit chromium for everyone to use, unfortunatelly i have no idea how to put it in an rpm file. I do know that flash works, for ad blocking is AdSweep and it is fast like hell

    P.S. AdSweep doesn't block adds, it hides them (at least the developer of it says so).

    P.S.2 Flash plugin (64 bit) works fine, i could watch youtube.com with no problems. As for now i'm using google chrome full time since after i tasted it i now dislike firefox for being so slow...

    P.S.3 The 64 bit flash player is included (newest one).


    Installation instructions:

    Unpack it,
    tar -xf google-chrome.tar.gz

    , put the chrome folder anywhere you like for example /home/<user>/,

    then move the desktop file to usr/share/applications/ directory by issuing command:

    sudo mv Google\ Chrome.desktop /usr/share/applications/


    After that you need to create a symlink to that chrome executable file by issuing a command

    ln -s /directory where chrome is/chrome/chrome /home/<user>/bin

    After that you can test out the newest chromium release and be amazed by it's speed

    P.S.4 Moving from 32 to 64 bit i noticed 10% speed increase in benchmarks on peacekeeper.

    DOWNLOAD IT FROM HERE:

    google-chrome.tar.gz

    Also, if you also want to enable extensions you need to edit the Google Chrome.desktop file and add --enable-extensions to the right from --enable-plugins

    Mind that some extensions might slow down the browser.

    If chrome doesn't start then you probably need to install some libraries and in that case open terminal where the chrome executable is and start it by ./chrome and watch for messages.

    If it for example says gconf2-so.0 : No such file or directory you need to open Software Management type the exact message of what you are missing in search window and below that tick "RPM "Provides"" and "File list". And install that file.

    There's a x86_64 rpm here:

    I'll install and test it right away

    Mine is 4.0.203 (by mine i mean compiled by me ) and boy did it compile A LOT even on a quad core

    By the way, this version uses now native 64 bit libraries and that's why i wanted to share with people

    No more 32 bit dependencies, google rewrote their V8 JavaScript to 64 bit.

    By the way it's for openSUSE 11.1

    I don't know how it will behave on 11.2.

    Onya Bendy, it works on my system .

    I just uncompressed it into my ~/me/Apps/ folder and ran it from there, fired straight up and asked to import my Firefox bookmarks and stuff.

    Well done

    I'm glad to hear it

    I'll be posting new versions every 1 or 2 days (it's from a svn repo, the ubuntu's ppa is 2 weeks behind it unfortunatelly).

    P.S. Could you comment on speed? Does it work as fast on your PC as on mine? For me it starts in half a second, rendering is also faster and gmail is a lot smoother than on firefox. How about you? Now i wonder if the vlc plugins will work with it, i'll create a symlink to /usr/lib64/browser-plugins and i'll test it out later

    Yes, it's mega-fast, way faster than FF. It starts in about 2 seconds (FF about 8!), and closes almost instantly (FF 10 seconds).

    I don't get any youtube video though, although I don't think I have 64bit flash installed. I'll look into getting that working tomorrow, I'm off to bed now .
