Subject: [gentoo-user] Latest chromium-40 on ~x86
Date: Sat, 24 Jan 2015 15:43:50
1 Hi folks,
3 I've been using chromium successfully on my ~x86 system for quite a
4 long time, but starting with the last two updates that came in during
5 the last few days (namely, chromium-40.0.2214.85 and
6 chromium-40.0.2214.91), I started having problems.
8 Both of these versions build just fine, but upon trying to launch
9 them, the browser's interface comes up just fine, but will only
10 display a "Something went wrong..." page. I can try typing in and
11 accessing URLs, but all I will ever get is this error page.
13 That's not all, though, I also get to see error messages, namely the
14 following in my terminal:
16 ../../sandbox/linux/seccomp-bpf-helpers/**CRASHING**:seccomp-bpf
17 failure in syscall 0265
19 And this here in dmesg:
21 chrome[5274]: segfault at e806109 ip b5c5c945 sp ac280980 error 6 in
22 chrome[b1864000+5eed000]
24 Great, I thought, something wrong with the sandbox stuff. So I tried
25 to launch chromium without it ("chromium --no-sandbox"), and indeed:
26 The browser works absolutely fine this way - I get none of the
27 problems or messages mentioned above.
29 Of course, I tried to find a related entry in both the Gentoo as well
30 as the chromium bug trackers, but I couldn't find anything in either.
31 I'm a bit reluctand to report my own bug as I wouldn't be 100% sure
32 that I'm not causing the problem (after all, I'm building my chromium
33 with USE=custom-cflags, which is not officially supported, but has
34 always produced nicely working builds for me in the past), so I
35 thought I'd ask here first if I'm the only one observing this
36 behavior.
38 The question, thus, would probably be: Anyone using one of the recent
39 chromium-40 versions on ~x86 or anywhere else and seeing something
40 similar? Or probably someone who has experienced something like that
41 before and could offer a guess what might be wrong here - a real bug,
42 custom-cflags, or something entirely different?
44 Thank all of you in advance!
46 Greetings,
47 Nils
