@MagusZ After some testing I've found some problems

  • The Leap_15.2 build doesn't work at all, crashes with undefined symbol after manually having to symlink some .so files
  • The Tumbleweed build works after manually symlinking some .so files, but it doesn't uninstall the previously installed version and uses "iridium" (symlinked to "chromium") in the command line instead of "iridium-browser", it also uses /usr/lib/chromium instead of /usr/lib/iridium-browser. So now we get both 88 and 85 (if you had 85 installed previously).

So I'm not really sure what to do, sure we could hack together a solution that creates the necessary symlinks and moves chromium/ to iridium-browser/ but if a fedora build is in the pipeline I'd personally wait for that.

It also uses pipewire, so that's a new dependency, but I'm guessing chromium uses that by default now.

There's a new build that is based off of Chromium 88, but its only for OpenSUSE. Would this package be updated for that or would it still strictly stick to the Fedora/CentOS builds?

@benvosper I had the same problem and "--use-gl=desktop" made it worse for me. I had more luck with creating some symlinks to the egl libs:

# ln -s /usr/lib/iridium-browser/swiftshader/ /usr/lib/iridium-browser/
# ln -s /usr/lib/iridium-browser/swiftshader/ /usr/lib/iridium-browser/

Seems that iridium is looking for those in the wrong place.

If anyone's having issues with hardware acceleration using the new Chromium 85 version despite using the "Override software rendering list" flag enabled, I've found I can enable it again by adding "--use-gl=desktop" to /etc/iridium-browser/iridium.default.

Without that flag, chrome://gpu/ just said "gpu-compositing" was disabled. With it on, everything works fine.

Thanks, @stavrakis. Should be fixed now.

Needs to be updated for the 2020.04.80-1 release as the source is no longer at this URL.

works, thanks!

Thanks, @tom. Seems they removed the previous v78 build when they released v79 for some reason. I do notice a v80 build there as well though, so I decided to use that, though that might also disappear.

Since the .deb release for iridium is over a month late, I've made this experimental package using the .rpm release instead.

I haven't tested it entirely, and I might need to add some dependencies (though it worked out of the box for me™), but at least it's "up to date" (in quotes, since latest chrome version is already 79).

You might still probably need to do some sort of fix by setting kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone, see Do note that doing this is a security risk, as is continuing to use an outdated browser.

To be honest I've actually given up and switched to firefox. You can get it close-ish to chrome with a bunch of user.js tweaks. Or you could use ungoogled-chromium if you like compiling or you trust the binary builds at
