Title: Chromium and Ungoogled Chromium DNF Repository
Post by: vddvss on December 14, 2019, 02:13:48 pm
I am pleased to announce a DNF repository for PPC64LE Chromium and Ungoogled Chromium builds. The repo should work for RHEL or CentOS, but it is only tested on Fedora. These builds only work for POWER9 little endian.

Thanks to awordnot for much of the work on the patches and dftxbs3e for work on Ungoogled Chromium.

Further details and source, as well as tarballs and RPMs that should work on any RPM-based distro, are available at https://gitlab.com/chromium-ppc64le/chromium-ppc64le (https://gitlab.com/chromium-ppc64le/chromium-ppc64le).

Installation
To enable the repository, run:

Code: [Select]
sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo=https://gitlab.com/chromium-ppc64le/chromium-ppc64le/raw/master/chromium-ppc64le.repo

Alternatively, you can download the chromium-ppc64le.repo (https://gitlab.com/chromium-ppc64le/chromium-ppc64le/raw/master/chromium-ppc64le.repo) file from the repository and place it in /etc/yum.repos.d.

After adding the repository, run:

Standard Chromium
Code: [Select]
sudo dnf install chromium-browser-stable

Ungoogled Chromium
Code: [Select]
sudo dnf install ungoogled-chromium-browser-stable

Important Note for Existing Users of Ungoogled Chromium
In order to allow parallel installation of both versions of Chromium, this repository contains a patch to change the default location of the Ungoogled Chromium profile from ~/.config/chromium to ~/.config/ungoogled-chromium.

To use your existing profile with Ungoogled Chromium, simply run:

Code: [Select]
mv ~/.config/chromium ~/.config/ungoogled-chromium

Notes on Binaries
This build includes a number of additional patches and features:
Patches Included
Features Enabled

Build Logs
The logs for the build and repo creation are available under GitLab pipelines (https://gitlab.com/chromium-ppc64le/chromium-ppc64le/pipelines).

Great job, it was a long time since I wanted to understand how Chromium was installed, of which Raptor had spoken well and recommended for Power. Just installed and I must say that it works very well. Thanks vddvss for the procedure!

Hi, even if I registered at the site where the link takes me, I could not find these patches for the GPU you are talking about ... How should I download and install them if I wanted to do it for my AMD RX 5700 XT in case is compatible of course ... The browser already works very well, but if there is a way to further increase the performance and make better use of the graphics card it would be the best ...

Could you go to chrome://gpu then click 'Copy Report to Clipboard`, save it as a file, and post as an attachment here?

I guess the link is using the wrong path (perhaps to a private repo or the internal CI/CD artefacts).

Nevertheless I think you can find the patches here eg. in the master branch:

Yes good Flying, with your link you will arrive direct. But the questions are 2 for me. First, what exactly is the Patch to activate the acceleration of the dedicated graphics card? Question 2, how do you...

I'm wondering what do you want to patch?


Notes on Binaries
This build includes a number of additional patches and features:
Patches Included
  • Patch (https://gitlab.com/chromium-ppc64le/chromium-ppc64le/docker-root/patches/chrome/enable-vaapi.patch) to enable GPU-accelerated video decoding
  • Patch (https://gitlab.com/chromium-ppc64le/chromium-ppc64le/docker-root/patches/chrome/change-user-agent.patch) to change the browser's user agent string to be the same as the official Chrome build on Linux, which helps reduce the browser's fingerprinting surface
  • Patch (https://gitlab.com/chromium-ppc64le/chromium-ppc64le/docker-root/patches/chrome/skia-vsx-instructions.patch) to enable use of POWER VSX instructions in the skia rendering engine

Post by: madscientist159 on February 10, 2020, 09:00:20 pm
First, great job in doing this!  Much appreciated.

  • Patch (https://gitlab.com/chromium-ppc64le/chromium-ppc64le/docker-root/patches/chrome/change-user-agent.patch) to change the browser's user agent string to be the same as the official
While I understand why this is done, it will result in under-reporting of POWER hardware, and my main concern is that Google may look at (in the worst case) no one using POWER (due to the string reporting x86_64) and continue to reject patches.  I don't know if this is a real concern or not, but thought I'd throw it out there for comments.

Worst case the architecture will become just like the rest of the UA string -- spoofed into whatever is most commonly expected for compatibility reasons.  We're not there yet though in terms of market research.

Post by: MauryG5 on February 11, 2020, 11:22:28 am
yes Tim is right, the use of Chromium Power must not be hidden from Google, we have to show that we are here too and that Power has real support is a community that loves and uses it ...

Hi All,

I'm trying to install chromium-browser-stable but getting error 500 when trying to download https://gitlab.com/chromium-ppc64le/chromium-ppc64le/-/jobs/682882047/artifacts/raw/docker-root/target/chromium-browser-stable-84.0.4147.125-1.ppc64le.rpm

Is this something temporary?

Just for the record, I've succeeded installing ungoogled-chromium-browser-stable.

Thank you all.

Hi, maybe there is some error in the command you give, I did the procedure as it is done above by the friend VDDVSS. First I installed the rpmfusion repositories for as the first command says, I copied it the same, then I ran the Chromium installation and it was fine and I did it more than once so it ran perfectly ...
Title: Re: Chromium and Ungoogled Chromium DNF Repository
Post by: cchinicz on September 25, 2020, 09:28:22 am
Hi,

Thanks, but still did not work. I've followed the instructions and even downloaded again chromium-ppc64le.repo and saved (replaced) it on etc/yum.repos.d

One additional piece of information: I had chromium installed before, removed it to try to fix another issue and then could not reinstall it following the procedure described by VDDVSS. I then installed ungoogled-chromium, where I'm writing this reply.

Any other idea? I've copy/pasted the full command/response below.

Regards

If you look at the Chromium Gitlab page (https://gitlab.com/chromium-ppc64le/chromium-ppc64le/) there is a download link how to install on other RPM based distributions:
Code: [Select]
sudo rpm -Uvh https://github.com/chromium-ppc64le/chromium-ppc64le/releases/download/v84.0.4147.89-1/chromium-browser-stable-84.0.4147.89-1.ppc64le.rpm
This should work.

Edit: Don't miss to "sudo dnf install liberation-fonts"

Hi,

Now I've updated the system (there were 27 updates) and Chromium is failing to update automatically (Plasma Desktop Workspace).

Is there any manual procedure I can do to update chromium? see below the error message, it's the same issue I circumvented when downloading through the rpm command.

Thanks in advance.

Nothing you can do. Status code: 500 is an Internal Server Error.

You can install this RPM.

Update: it worked but broke the update (through the UI/KDE or dnf update).

I had to uninstall using an RPM command in order to update other applications and kernel.

It seems the two methods (dnf and rpm) do not get along very well.

Sorry guys but what happened to Chromium on Power? How come we are stuck at version 84.0.4147.125 and it doesn't update anymore? Has something happened or you have to run some new repository installation that I don't know?

I'm also a bit curious about what's happening with the Chromium port...Firefox is still very painful to use (no JIT) and it doesn't look like anyone has updated the Ungoogled/POWER port for a while now?

I did some digging around today, it looks like the repositories are still being updated, and 88 might be buildable as of around a week ago:

https://github.com/leo-lb/ungoogled-chromium/commit/362ec8584e373b798f9e3e45f4791b2dae2d0ee3

I'll have to give it a try at some point...

That's for sure. The only question that remains is who is going to check the source code?

Anyway, CORPORATE, IMHO, means MS, VMWare, RHEL, Oracle, SAP, IBM and many others proprietary softwares that companies and governments trust blindly. Another step further, maybe based on the same arguments ("we trust our IT providers"), most corporations are ok with Intel/AMD and any other blob inside their servers. They even trust cloud providers with their virtualized servers, which they have no guarantee whatsoever of what's "inside".

Yes of course, in practice I download the tarball with Chromium, when I decompress the file, he extracts the file but does it without any extension and apparently this is a problem because if I try to install with the sudo dpkg command, it does not accept it and it gives me error. I tried to look for guides on how to install but unfortunately without success because it always gave me a pat that is no longer present or obsolete. Of course now this is new and I haven't tried to decompress it yet but I wanted to know before acting, if there is any particular command to use or something else to install ...

Exactly after I do the regular extraction of the archive, the file I get is: chromium-browser-stable-87.04280.67-1. I see that the .deb extension is missing but I tried in any case to give the command: sudo dpkg -i chromium-browser-stable-87.04280.67-1 and he gives me an error with the words: error: the chromium archive -browser-stable-87.04280.67-1 is not a normal file. I also tried to give the classic sudo apt-get install chromium-browser-stable-87.04280.67-1 but again nothing. What do you think am I wrong and what command exactly does it take to install this chromium package on Debian? I think that with this command I do, it doesn't work because it wants .deb extensions and I don't have it on this archive so I think it takes another command ...

There is _no_ debian package. The tar.xz is an archive of google binary. You can extract the content then run `./chrome` to start the app.

Hi TLE, I ran the command you told me and I started it also on Ubuntu. But my question now arises spontaneously, that is, how do I get the executable file with icon to open like any other installed application? Currently I am forced to always open the shell and give the command you told me to use it, but I would like it to be present already ready like all the other applications ... How should you do it?

Hi TLE, you had to stop with the development of Chromium apparently, there are no more new versions since I'm seeing and I don't know where to get the sources after 87 to be able to compile it myself unfortunately ...

I've been fully occupied at work. I will try to find time to bump the version to latest. I am more than happy to teach you how to if you are interested.

Hello TLE friend, of course I am very interested in doing it, then having a teacher like you is an honor for me! I tried to compile Chromium 87 myself, when you published the sources and the procedure I managed without problems, if the procedure is always the same I have no problems doing it, the problem is that I don't know where to find the sources of the other versions like 88 or 89 etc etc ... If I found the sources I think I would have no problem compiling, always repeat, the procedure is always the same otherwise you should just teach me the new one ... free yourself for the next version ... :)

Guys we stopped at version 87 while Google with its Chrome arrived at version 93 and beta 94 ... We have to recover the lost ground otherwise we will be left behind ...

All the sources code for the build can be found in https://gitlab.com/chromium-ppc64le

Except that I always see up to version 87, besides I don't see anything or at least I don't know how to see the next sources ... Also I see that the most recent files are from 3 months ago ... How can I find the sources from 88 to 93?

I keep finding only up to version 87 and with last work done 4 months ago ... I can't find anything else unfortunately ... Or I don't know how to do the right procedure to find it ...

Yes because I and other contributors to the project have not time to port all patches to 87 or newer yet

I understand, then we are waiting for you to bring the latest patches and thus be able to have the new sources to compile ... Come on, we are with you!
