Post subject: [SOLVED] chromium browser does not work anymore
After D-U chromium still starts up, but the only thing it displays is "Aw, Snap! Something went wrong while displaying this webpage. ..." This message occurs as start screen as well when trying to open a web page.

      Code:
# dpkg -l "*chromium*" | grep ii
ii  chromium                                   15.0.874.106~r107270-1       Google's open source chromium web browser
ii  chromium-inspector                         15.0.874.106~r107270-1       page inspector for the chromium browser
ii  chromium-l10n                              15.0.874.106~r107270-1       chromium-browser language packages

I had installed chromium once.
Did not exactly like. Maybe some problems.

So I have stuck to basic rules and use what has always worked well- iceweasel.

Can anyone tell me why chromium may be used?

Thanks.

Have a nice day.

I've been trying chromium quite a bit lately and I like it. Not sure how to downgrade to the previous version in sid though. Are previous versions in sid available somewhere? If I can get that, I suppose I could use dpkg to install it.

thanks.

sorry to answer my own post, but fyi if someone doesn't know how to do this. Used apt-get to remove chromium and chromium-inspector. Then downloaded the .deb of each from testing. Then install chromium-inspector, then chromium.

Hi,

I've got the same problem...

1. Well chromium for me is much faster then iceweasel, where switching between tabs while browsing sometimes takes 2-4 seconds !!!

2. I'm currently working on some chromium-extensions...

and today is a very sad day for me...

Downgrading to the version of testing did not solve the problem itself.
I think some config file was updated/corrupted while upgrading to the new version on sid.
After downgrading, renaming the folder ~/.config/chromium, then restarting, I don't see
"Aw, snap" any more. I copied bookmarks back...

Not digging exactly where is problem. May be new version can work with empty config folder, too.

Even after deleting ~/.config/chromium the browser can't render any site.

Don't know, downgrading worked for me.

I'm sure it will be fixed in Debian soon. Version 15.0.874.106 works without problems on my Arch box so I doubt it's an upstream problem.

The new version in Sid is broken. Latest version from testing does well with a fresh config. If you use Chromium, wait till it is fixed.

I got caught by it too. Just enabled testing and got chromium and chromium-inspector from there. The testing version is working fine till they get it fixed.

The previous Sid version is now the testing version and it works fine, so I'm staying with that. I noticed that the current google-chrome-stable is the same version as the current chromium in Sid, I don't know if it suffers from the same problems, but I expect they'll be fixed soon. I know that chromium is the freer, less encumbered version.

To whom do we owe the thanks for the fixed chromium-browser in the aptosid repo? I really appreciate it -- I can't believe debian has left that known-broken package in their sid repo over 1 week now.

I have never used it (tried long ago and at that time it was not viable) but I thought I would try again and give chromium-browser a shot.
Installed Flawlessly AMD 64 version using apt-get.
It has come a long way and seems to function without any problems yet. seems very fast
version: chromium-browser 15.0.874.121 for AMD64 Imported my bookmarks and look’s good if but a little spartan compared with iceweasel 8
