I have a script that worked a few years ago to make a google-chrome extension, but it's not working now:

Code: [Select]
tc@box:/usr/local/google-chrome$ ./chrome
[8843:8843:0413/125249.710034:ERROR:browser_dm_token_storage_linux.cc(100)] Error: /etc/machine-id contains 0 characters (32 were expected).
Fontconfig error: Cannot load default config file: No such file: (null)
[8843:8843:0413/125249.806366:ERROR:edid_parser.cc(102)] Too short EDID data: manufacturer id
[8843:8869:0413/125249.853072:ERROR:bus.cc(393)] Failed to connect to the bus: Could not parse server address: Unknown address type (examples of valid types are "tcp" and on UNIX "unix")

Trace/breakpoint trap

Also, Google no longer provides 32-bit chrome binaries for Linux. 64-bit only. Here's your chance to give to the community.

Code: [Select]
Fontconfig error: Cannot load default config file: No such file: (null)
This can be solved by:
Code: [Select]
sudo ln -s /usr/local/etc/fonts/ /etc/or this script in /usr/local/tce.installed
Code: [Select]
#!/bin/sh
if [ ! -e /lib64 ]; then
        ln -s /lib /lib64
fi
if [ ! -h /etc/fonts ]; then
        ln -s /usr/local/etc/fontd /etc
fi
update-mime-database /usr/local/share/mime > /dev/null 2>&1
I'll be very happy if you create the extension.

It's not a font problem because that isn't what's causing it to crash. Here's the full terminal output:

I already ran strace and it didn't point to anything I could influence. Sorry, I'm not working on it any time soon. Also, at 111 MB it's really big.

Here's the script I wrote years ago. It once made a working extension. I've updated it to make an extension on TC-11, but as you already know chrome won't run. I used the rpm instead of the deb file.

Code: [Select]
#!/bin/sh -xv
#
TCZNAME="google-chrome"
TCZPATH="https://dl.google.com/linux/direct"
TCZFILE="google-chrome-stable_current_x86_64.rpm"

if [ $(/usr/bin/id -u) = 0 ]; then
  echo "Don't run as root."
  exit 1
else
  echo "Warning: This extension must be built by the user who will run chrome for sandboxing to work."
fi

### load require extensions

for a in wget squashfs-tools; do
  tce-load -i "$a" || tce-load -iwl "$a" || exit 1

### create extension working directories

### fixup directory tree

mkdir -p "$TCZ"/usr/local/tce.installed
mv opt/google/chrome "$TCZ"/usr/local/"$TCZNAME"

I looked at your script. You should read up on heredocs.

I was able to run chrome.tcz with my script in TC11 (x86_64) with Xvesa and jwm. In your case chrome produce many errors but dbus, for example, is not required to run Google Blink based engine browsers. Vivaldi browser, and Opera 62 has the same problem, but there are working versions in the TC11 (x86_64) repo.

Your script also install chrome in /usr/local/, this may give some problems.

By default chrome will install in /opt. Also by default everything in /opt will be saved in mydata.tgz, which would make for a really big backup file and long time waiting for the backup to finish. This is why I moved the chrome extension to /usr/local. As I recall the tricky part was getting sandboxing to work correctly.

Hi andyj
By default chrome will install in /opt. ...
While it may not be the norm, there's nothing that prevents you from building an extension that lives in  /opt. For example, if Chrome
wants to install itself in  /opt/Chrome/usr/local/......  then:
Code: [Select]
cd /opt
mksquashfs Chrome chrome.tcz

Quote
... Also by default everything in /opt will be saved in mydata.tgz, which would make for a really big backup file and long time waiting for the backup to finish. This is why I moved the chrome extension to /usr/local. ...
Then add  opt/Chrome  to the  /opt/.xfiletool.lst  file so it doesn't get backed up.

Or if Chrome saves settings under  /opt , then replace the blanket  opt  line in  .filetool.lst  with more specific targets.

Yes, nothing says you can't put an extension in /opt. I'm just saying it's not a good idea unless you have to. I'm pretty sure /usr/local is the preferred location when possible. I have an extension for the MS Sql Server ODBC driver for Linux which installs into /opt because the paths are hard coded in the binaries from Microsoft. Yes, I checked with the strings command. Given where files on a typical C: drive can wind up it's no surprise that they think nothing of filesystem management. In this case it serves as an example of why making a tcz that requires /opt should be avoided if possible. An extension that requires manually editing /opt/.xfiletool.lst is probably not for the masses. That's one of the reasons I haven't submitted my msodbcsql.tcz extension. As for chrome settings, fortunately they get saved in the user home dir.

Hi andyj
Agree, agree, and agree. :)

...  I'm just saying it's not a good idea unless you have to. ...
I was just implying if an extension is causing you grief, you may have to (or want to). Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.

If I remember correctly, when Jason W was producing  SCEs (Self Contained Extensions), they were installed in  /opt.

Yes, especially when dealing with this one particular vendor  ::)
... MS Sql Server ODBC driver for Linux which installs into /opt because the paths are hard coded in the binaries ...
I just wish for once they didn't feel the need to make it so painful.

I think it's not possible to create getLastest extension because Google has changed the way how to download deb or rpm package. If you want Chrome on Tinycore you have to download it itself and don't install it in /usr/local because it won't work in this directory.
