    Not working. yum info google-chrome-stable says: No matching Packages to list. Not clear that it is actually looking in the google repo. Is there something that needs to be done to enable that repo besides creating the repo file? “yum repolist all” does not show the google-chrome repo.

    Centos 7

    Is it normal for Chrome to try to access /etc/passwd and why would I let it? – thanx tmgb

    From selinux notice:

    SELinux is preventing /opt/google/chrome/nacl_helper from getattr access on the file /etc/passwd.

    ***** Plugin chrome (98.5 confidence) suggests ****************************

    If you want to use the plugin package
    Then you must turn off SELinux controls on the Chrome plugins.
    Do
    # setsebool -P unconfined_chrome_sandbox_transition 0

    ***** Plugin catchall (2.46 confidence) suggests **************************

    If you believe that nacl_helper should be allowed getattr access on the passwd file by default.
    Then you should report this as a bug.
    You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
    Do
    allow this access for now by executing:
    # grep nacl_helper /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
    # semodule -i mypol.pp

    I’m getting this error when trying to run from terminal

    [1:1:0514/151127:ERROR:nacl_fork_delegate_linux.cc(314)] Bad NaCl helper startup ack (0 bytes)

    • Spastek says:

      Nevermind. I fixed it. Had to go rebuild chrome (was working from icon but not shell). Works now.

      • chrome says:

        I’m getting the same error, could you let me know how you did fix it? (if you let me the steps it will be awesome) thanks.

        • joye says:

          I’m getting the same error too,
          Did you solve this problem? could you let me know how you did fix it?
          thanks.

          • Ravi Saive says:

            @Joye,
            Sorry for trouble, could you please share with me what kind of error you getting during chrome installation?

  8. emilio says:

    I need to run chrome as root user … after installing the latest version I get a sigabrt while it’s normally working as no-root users. I tried to modify the launcher script and to remove all cache/config/apps data under root directory unsuccessfully. Can You give me some more hints to sort this issue out
    Thanks

    • Ravi Saive says:

      @Emilo,
      Under /opt/google/chrome folder, open google-chrome file.
      Replace following line

      exec -a "$0" "$HERE/chrome" "$@"
      

      with

      exec -a "$0" "$HERE/chrome" "$@" --user-data-dir $HOME
      

      save and exit to launch as root user..

    Chrome doesn’t open when I click to run. When I try to open in command line I receive “[1] 2803″.

    • Bart says:

      Ridge,

      On thing to check.
      Make sure that the “chrome-sandbox” file has the proper permissions. (must be root with a stickybit)
      Run these commands in the chrome folder
      $> sudo chown root:root chrome-sandbox
      $> sudo chmod 4755 chrome-sandbox
