• Google-Chrome (64 bit / Slackware 13-x86-64)

    • This installs the _binary_version of 64 bit Chrome browser provided by Google early dev access channel.  It doesn't build chrome from src.

    • You will need 
      • 1) GConf (which in turns requires ORBIT2).  Both can be found at Slackbuilds or you can build them from src.

      • 2) mozilla-firefox.  Chrome requires bunch of nss files that firefox already has.  So just leave your mozilla-firefox package there. I use mozilla-firefox-3.5.5.  If you use something else then just make sure that /usr/lib64/firefox is a symlink to /usr/lib64/firefox-yourversion or wherever the libnss3*.so are.  The build script will do some quick check and symlink for you.

      • 3) mozilla-nss. You will need this to get rid off all the https warning - it provides tools such as certutil that add the certificates of the sites.  Note this is optional but highly recommend,  you still can run and browse the web with chrome however whenever entering a https site -- chrome will give warning.   

      • get the latest 64bit deb here and save it as "google-chrome-unstable_current_amd64.deb" in the same directory as these files.  Then exec the script google-chrome.SlackBuild as root.

      • An icon will be added to your gnome/kde/xfce envir.   Otherwise run /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome

      • Miscs:   
        • Chrome features

        • delete all the temporary files in /tmp/google-chrome 

    •  My google-chrome.tar.gz SlackBuild script
      • tested with mozilla-firefox-3.5.5-x86_64-1_slack13.0, ORBit2-2.14.17-x86_64-1_SBo, GConf-2.26.0-x86_64-1_SBo
