At the moment it looks like chromium-52 will be the last version for the slackware-14.1 / tahrpup era...

chromium-53 is available - tested for the slackware-14.2 (slacko and LxPupSc) and xenialpup era pups

chromium-53.0.2785.92+pepper_22.0.0.209_lx.sfs

Morning, peebee.

I'm guessing this is to do with the glibc issue again, yes? I've just packaged Chrome 53.0.2785.101 for 64-bit Tahr/Slacko, and it's working fine. I'm posting from it now.

As we all know, specific versions of Chrome have always been taken from the equivalent version's Chromium project source code.....and then re-compiled against an older version of the glibc. At least, that's how it seems to have been done for several years now.

I'm guessing Google have always employed this practice to ensure Chrome's 'use-ability' on the largest possible number of machines.....

How long this practice will continue is, of course, anybody's guess..! We shall see. I never thought I would see the practice evolving (on the Linux side of the fence) where the user has to upgrade the entire OS just to be able to continue to use their favourite browser safely..... Rolling Eyes

Hi Mike

Yes

AlienBob (who does the chromium compiles) only seems to have the effort available to compile Chromium-53 for slackware-14.2 / current - maybe somebody else will take up the slackware-14.1 update....we shall see...

..and unfortunately for alienbob and his family and the greater community that effort may be cut short as Eric has received notice from his employer.

Ouch..!

Alienbob's the same age as me. It's no fun trying to re-engage back in the jobs marketplace at our time of life..... Shocked

I wish him the best of luck. He's going to need it.


Mike.

PostPosted: Mon 19 Sep 2016, 08:36    Post subject: Alternative version for tahrpup etc.  

UPDATED 11-oct-16

chromium_53.0.2785.116+pepper_23.0.0.185.sfs

This version of chromium comes from the OpenMandriva project

It appears to work on:
tahrpup-6.0.5 and derivatives (LxPupTahr-15.12.1 and X-Tahr-2.0)

It also works on "2016" era pups such as:
xenialpup-7.0.4 and derivatives (LxPupXenial-16.08.2)
slacko-6.9.6.1
LxPupSc-16.09.3

It sadly doesn't work on:
slacko-6.3.2 and derivatives (LxPup-s-16.07.1 and X-Slacko-4.2)
LxPupPrecise-15.09.1

It's also a bit smaller (10MB) than the AlienBob Slackware builds.

Please test and report any issues.

64-bit version in later post

Since Brave is a Chromium fork - any chance of it for Puppy via a PET or SFS, please?

Thanks ...

Only available as 64-bit....
Quote:
Brave for Linux comes in two versions:
64 bit .deb for Debian/Ubuntu and 64 bit .rpm for Fedora/openSUSE.

Would depend on what dependencies it had been compiled for - if systemd or pulseaudio is a dependency then its a NO-NO....

I've tried several Search queries & so far nothing re. Brave & either pulseaudio or systemd have shown up.

When I get some time I'll have to try the Brave user forum & ask there.

Thanks ...

Quick test on slacko64-6.9.6.1 converting .rpm to .pet shows no missing dependencies however running gives errors:
Code:
# brave
An uncaught exception occurred in the main process Uncaught Exception:

Doesn't look promising....

Is it a complex process to make JavaScript available where it's looking for it?

I'm a long way from even elementary coding any more - beyond some HTML & CSS.

EDIT: Just posted a question to Twitter copied to Brave - hopefully someone there will look here and offer a solution.

Thanks - David

PostPosted: Wed 28 Sep 2016, 02:23    Post subject: Chromium 53 hangs when trying to print  

I'm using chromium_53.0.2785.116+pepper_23.0.0.162.sfs (from the OpenMandriva Project) on Tahrpup 6.0.5.

I observed that Chromium will hang when I try to print a page from the browser directly. Choosing to save as PDF in the print dialog is fine and later printing the PDF is also fine. Maybe a newer version of CUPS is required. Here CUPS is 1.4.8.

No big issue, just in case somebody else experiences the same problem.

So far everything else seems to be working fine.
