Chromium?
#1
This may be a bit of a n00b question.....

I was trying to install chromium but apt-get fails to locate a package, but I can in the Debian Jessie package list that there is an ARM variant of Chromium available.

Do I need to add a new source to pick that up?

Thanks!

Here's the output. Unless I'm totally missing something, chromium browser is not there.


Code:
[email protected]:~/Desktop$ sudo apt-cache search chromium
[sudo] password for pine64user:
chromium-inspector - web browser - page inspection support
chromium-l10n - web browser - language packs
chromium-bsu - fast paced, arcade-style, scrolling space shooter
chromium-bsu-data - data pack for the Chromium B.S.U. game
gecko-mediaplayer - Multimedia plug-in for Gecko browsers
mozc-data - Mozc input method - data files
ninja-build - small build system closest in spirit to Make
ninja-build-doc - documentation for ninja-build
python-pyftpdlib - Python FTP server library

Seems chromium is only available for armhf at the moment? At least found this version in ports.ubuntu.com, but seems not available for arm64....

Thanks for the clarification!

I didn't realize that the Pine was on arm64 and not armhf. (Also didn't realize there was a difference between armhf and arm64! Blush )

It works!

(High CPU usage is mostly due to the fact that MATE system monitor is consuming quiet a bit of cpu for drawing stuff. When using top, chromium is using few % when idle basically)

Remember to run with:

$ chromium --disable-seccomp-filter-sandbox

(probably due to the bug in the old kernel, seccomp and seccomp filter is in 3.10.65 according to /proc/config.gz)

Packages:

http://repo.linaro.org/ubuntu/linaro-ove...m-browser/

Debian bug: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepor...799939#113

There should also be 49.0 in debian experimental, didn't checked it yet.

I can confirm this also works for chromium under Arch Linux. chromium --disable-seccomp-filter-sandbox fixes the awww snap error that occurs after starting chromium under arch.

I applied some of the Riku's patches and fixed one minor issue with some syscalls in the sandbox, and was able to build chromium 50.

You still need --disable-seccomp-filter-sandbox

Packages:

You only really need chromium_50.0.2661.75-2_arm64.deb (about 40MB).
