Installing applications - troubleshooting

Postby jalisco » 2018-04-18 05:09

Hello,

I am trying to install the Brave browser onto debian (jessie).

I followed the instructions found here: https://github.com/brave/browser-laptop ... usty-amd64

I didn't have any issues, error messages, or the like. Everything "seemed" to install properly.

However, when I try to run the application, the little icon shows up in my toolbar, on the top left, as if the program is going to launch, then just closes.

How can I debug this?

I am guessing this has been smooth for other people, since I have not found one iota of anyone else having problems.

I get this..

Code: Select all
[11539:11539:0418/155925.353497:FATAL:zygote_host_impl_linux.cc(126)] No usable sandbox! Update your kernel or see https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src/+/master/docs/linux_suid_sandbox_development.md for more information on developing with the SUID sandbox. If you want to live dangerously and need an immediate workaround, you can try using --no-sandbox.


So, I guess that is what i need to do, update my kernel.

You can update your kernel to 4.9 from jessie-backports. Depending on your drivers and hardware, you may also need to update any non-free firmware and drivers from there, as well as free dkms packages.

Try
Code: Select all
brave --no-sandbox


first, to make sure there are no other problems with running it.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: GIMP 2.10.6, Pale Moon 28.0.1, wine-staging 3.15, qBittorrent 4.1.2, Linux kernel 4.18.6, virtualbox 5.2.18
