✔ NOTE: If the md5sums don't match, don't post the makepkg output. Simply flag the package.

You can check for new Linux releases in: http://googlechromereleases.blogspot.com/search/label/Stable%20updates, or use:
$ curl -s https://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/x86_64/repodata/other.xml.gz | gzip -df | awk -F\" '/pkgid/{ sub(".*-","",$4); print $4": "$10 }'

✔ OBS: 32-bit support for Google Chrome Stable Channel has been dropped as well. Either upgrade to 64-bit, or stick to [extra]/chromium, which will continue to be updated:

Noting here for others: I had an issue where manually installed microsoft fonts were causing 'aw snap' crashes.

It seems like the crashes only started with 59 as I didn't have the same crashes before that. Also, the 'aw snap' crashes occurred independent of my using stable/beta/dev channels installed via aur.

If you have CompositorTileW problem, try to remove font 'opendesktop-fonts'.

@TID91: isolate which versions are breaking, and report to the Chromium project?
I doubt that has anything to do with the way Chrome is packaged for Arch (but I could be wrong).

Hello, I'm experiencing a problem with Chrome: while uploading a fair amount of photos on Google Photos (over 1000 photos) or videos (45 videos), after two or three files processed Google Chrome gets stuck and the popup "Page unrensposive" comes out and I need to kill chrome.

I tried with Chromium on the official repositories and I have no problem with it.

Any idea why? Do you have any suggestion on how to debug this?

@Det I do, but after resigning it I had lost my Session Manager info.

I'll try with google-chrome-beta to see if it repopulates that info.

Det commented on 2017-06-10 08:00

@valandil, don't you sync your profiles with your Google account?

At the first start it is absolutely always chrome crashes, absolutely always. Such problems began with this version

valandil commented on 2017-06-10 01:03

@Det: Indeed, this works. I'll try to seek some help in the Chrome help forums, as I'd rather not lose my profile info.

Thanks!

Can't say. Someone in there also had an i7-3770. If Beta Channel works (60.x), then maybe you just need to stick to that branch, until Stable syncs up.

Beta Channel also has its own settings dir, so maybe try a clean new profile by renaming ~/.config/google-chrome/ and ~/.cache/google-chrome/?

Have you ever seen this error?

I've come accross this in old bugs (https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=544160), but I think they all pointed to the use of old processors that didn't support SSE2. I'm on an Intel Core i7 which definitely supports SSE2, and still have this mistake.

google-chrome-beta starts up just fine.
