Thread: Google Chrome help

  1. #1

    Default Google Chrome help

    Anyone have Google Chrome installed on 11.3? I have it functional but the fileupload management DOES NOT work with jpgs folders. For example, I try to upload a file to facebook, I open a folder called mypics that has jpgs, the brower crashes with a Segmantation fault.

    I've scoured google and no luck..... not even on Google Chrome's site... is there any hope?

    Yes, I have the same problem, I can't upload pictures since about a month now. Sorry I don't know the reason, but I suspect it's to do with JPEG handling in the preview pane because that's when it crashes, when a picture is selected. I also tried updating to the latest and searching in forums with no results. It may be an openSUSE thing since it doesn't seem to affect other distros. I gave up and just switched to Firefox for this task.

    This problem comes and goes for me. When it appears, I first try Chromium, which usually works. If that fails, I fall back to firefox. I expect the problem to disappear ..... and probably reappear later!

    well, it is a GOOD way to make Chrome go away! huh?
    i wonder if it has been logged as a bug against openSUSE or Google? or
    both?

    I tend to suspect a mismatch between Chrome and the jpeg libraries in openSUSE. I think it would be worthwhile collecting information about situations where it happens. Maybe a pattern can be detected. Mine are:

    x86_64 arch
    openSUSE 11.3
    google-chrome-stable-8.0.552.237
    libjpeg8-8.0.1-2.1.1
    libjpeg6-6.2.0-4.1.1

    The way I solved this problem was to go to the Beta release. Works perfectly now.

    Thanks, I should have thought of that, so I installed 9.0.597.84 beta.

    Unfortunately it also crashes in exactly the same way, when you click on a JPEG file to upload. So I now add that version to my combination that doesn't work.

    Hmm, I suppose you completely un installed the other version first and removed all files in your home. Give the bleeding edge unstable version 10 something a shot. I had to do that on one of my installs, think it was 11.4.

    I am running the beta on 11.3 and it uploads jpegs fine. Since I really like Chromium I had to make it work
