Chrome crashes and logs me out

Post#1 by oreo » 17 Aug 2015, 16:03

I have a relatively new Asus X200M Notebook computer. This has 1.8 GB or RAM and a dual core Intel Celeron CPU N2830 processor running at 2.16Gh.

On this computer and running Porteus 3.1, Chrome crashes. It starts with the wiggly icon, but then I find that I am logged out and I need to log-in in order to get back to the desktop. I have tried the 32 and 64 bit editions. I have tried starting them in the Always Fresh mode. I always use a KDE version.

I have just found that OpenOffice runs just fine. But Chrome still crashes.

I previously thought that the crashing problem was somehow due to memory issues. Using a Linux based on Ubuntu, this computer runs OK, but freezes up for 5-8 seconds rather often. This happens when I only have just a few Chrome browser windows open and maybe a file manager active. I can just be typing in a GoogleDoc and without any seeming need to, the computer acts as if it needed to read or write in the cache, then it will come alive again. I don't know if that would have anything to do with the Porteus problem I am having.

I will see if there is a Chromium version available and see if I have the same problem in Porteus with that. Thanks.

Opera doesn't cause the crash. So it seems to just be with Chrome.

I downloaded and compiled Chromium. It also crashes just like Chrome does.

What desktop are you using? KDE, XFCE ... ? XFCE should do better.

With my older laptop, often within google-chrome, the hdd keeps running on and on.

Opera seems to be lighter on memory, I never have that type of behavior.

I'm using KDE.

But with 1.8 GB and running such a small operating system as Porteus, I didn't think that Chrome would cause a problem!

So there according to you there is no browser alternative.

Opera works quite good for me. Some other talk about midori. And flashpeak, though based on chrome, responds pretty well.

If Chrome isn't reliable, and Opera is dead, do you recommend Firefox as the best browser?

I see that I can download an RPM for Vivaldi. Sorry for this newbie question here: How does one install an RPM into Porteus?

@oreo
Right-click the rpm package and choose "convert rpm to xzm"
I use xfce but it should be the same in kde.

I'm not sure if vivaldi will do any better. Howsoever, to get vivaldi you can
use the USM (porteus) package manager.

or look at
64bit
http://slackonly.com/pub/packages/14.1- ... k/vivaldi/
32bit
http://slackonly.com/pub/packages/14.1- ... k/vivaldi/

or use a slackbuild

I have nearly the same system on a HP Streambook: CPU N2830, 1.8 GB or RAM

VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Atom Processor Z36xxx/Z37xxx Series Graphics & Display (rev 0e) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
Kernel driver in use: i915
Kernel modules: i915

and the same troubles for few days :wall:

1. Change your kernel .config
CONFIG_DRM_I915=m
CONFIG_DRM_I915_KMS=y
CONFIG_DRM_I915_FBDEV=y
CONFIG_FB_INTEL=m
CONFIG_AGP=y
CONFIG_AGP_INTEL=m
CONFIG_FB_INTEL=m

Rebuild your Kernel

2. change your xorg.conf
Section "Device"
Identifier "Card0"
Driver "intel"
...
EndSection

Reboot your system.
When glxgears works - Chrome works!

have a nice day
