    Question Chromium message "you are using an unsupported command line option --no sandbox"

    I am getting this orange bar as of the subject of this thread every time I use chromium. Question:
    a) can I get rid of it permanently without having to click it away every time?
    b) is there a reason why the setting --no sandbox has been applied?
    Version of Chromium:
    Code:
    Version 19.0.1066.0 (svn126066)
    Version of openSUSE 12.1
    Thank you.

    Hey stakanov,

    Which repo are you having Chromium installed from ? I'm running 19.0.1074 from Index of /repositories/network:/chromium these repos, and don't have the issue
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.

    O.K. I will try. The version was from the regular update repo. Is this maybe because I run secure file permissions? I will try out and report back.

    O.K. this is the same issue with the one of the build service repo. From the command line it is more specific:
    Code:
    chromium
    [20104:20104:11559773058:ERROR:renderer_main.cc(224)] Running without renderer sandbox
    any idea?

    O.K. if you start the program directly it give you the reason:
    Code:
    /usr/lib64/chromium> /usr/lib64/chromium/chromium[21836:21836:14956187797:
    FATAL:zygote_host_impl_linux.cc(148)] 
    The SUID sandbox helper binary was found, but is not configured correctly. 
    Rather than run without sandboxing I'm aborting now. 
    You need to make sure that /usr/lib/chrome_sandbox is owned by root and has mode 4755
    Fine, I suppose that this is, given secure file permissions, a bug, as this should haven been included as setting in the permissions. Then this would call for a bug report. Does anybody know if the issue is already addressed?

    Look at how the application is started: menu entry, script... somewhere
    that option is written.

    In fact,
    Code:
    # chmod 4755 /usr/lib/chrome_sandbox
    solves it.
    I will try to find out if a bug report regarding secure permissions has been raised. After all, having chrome running in a sandbox should be compliant with the philosophy of secure permission settings. Or am I wrong?
