When reporting this package as outdated make sure there is indeed a new version for Linux Desktop. You can have a look at the "Dev updates" tag in Release blog for this. Do not report updates for ChromeOS, Android or other platforms dev versions as updates here.

This package will automatically get updated as soon as the Debian package is available. This is checked at least once per hour.

Today's 87.0.4280.11 crashes for me with illegal hardware instruction so buyer beware

The same problem for me. It only starts if I remove wayland from my chrome-dev-flags.conf .. but that throws me back to xwayland.

EDIT: there is a bug report here [1]

@luzifer: Rather than the release blog, one can also instantly see the current version on OmahaProxy: https://omahaproxy.appspot.com/

@alumni that article is about chromium, not google-chrome-dev. The file is mentioned during installation:

Custom flags should be put directly in: ~/.config/chrome-dev-flags.conf
The launcher is called: 'google-chrome-unstable'

According to this:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Chromium#Making_flags_persistent

I can make commandline flags persistent by creating the file ~/.config/chrome-flags.conf. However this doesn't work for me. Any hints?

Later edit: It's chrome-dev-flags.conf

Chromium will probably keep working, as it's built for Arch, not Debian.

New profile will probably also help. For a while.

The last one which is not crashing is the latest 78 version: google-chrome-dev-78.0.3904.17-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

Does anyone else experience crashing chrome? It launches, even empty window (no tabs), time goes by, and it just crashes. I can't figure out what's wrong, unfortunately. Still staying on 78.

@hexchain: The version resolving is an automated process.

Indeed there were two version changes in the official RPM repo (the one Det's pinned comment describes):

2019-10-18 22:05:38 UTC to=79.0.3938.0 from=79.0.3941.4
2019-10-15 19:05:42 UTC to=79.0.3941.4 from=79.0.3938.0

It looks they published a new version, noted it's broken and pulled it from the repo again.

hexchain commented on 2019-10-19 10:02

The new version is v79.0.3938.0 but the one before is v79.0.3941.4.

@leebickmtu I have workarounded it by disabling gpu compositing (the scale factor is for my 4K monitor)

--force-device-scale-factor=1.13 --enable-gpu-rasterization --ignore-gpu-blacklist --disable-gpu-driver-workarounds --disable-gpu --disable-gpu-compositing
