Backported Chromium in a new Schmonium OBS repo

So far, we can backport Sid's 76.0.3809.87 version to Buster without changing anything:

https://build.opensuse.org/package/show ... m/chromium

It seems to eat about 2GB of RAM per thread at the maximum point in the build, so if you want to DIY on your home machine, you can limit the threads with a capital "J"--so a four thread CPU on a eight GB machine can be limited to three threads with

Code: Select all
debuild -uc -us -J3


since if you do have to use swap at any time, it slows down the machine immensely. It seemed to use less than 5 GB of free disk space for the build, which was less than I thought it would.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Foliate 1.5.3, Minitube 3.1, wine-staging 4.14, Virtual Box 5.2.32 & 6.0.10, Pale Moon 28.6.1, Waterfox 56.2.13
