[FIXED] 32-bit Chromium no longer stuck on old version?

Chromium for Arch32 has been stuck at 74.0.3729.169-2.0 since 2019-06-01 06:56:38:
https://www.archlinux32.org/packages/pe … /chromium/

AlienBob has managed to build 32-bit versions of Chromium v76 for Slackware.....
https://alien.slackbook.org/blog/chromi … available/

but notes some difficulties - are these what is preventing the Arch32 builds?

Re: [FIXED] 32-bit Chromium no longer stuck on old version?

Sorry for the really late answer. Archlinux32 chromium is stuck in some hand-crafted code:

>>> referenced by ../../third_party/openh264/src/codec/common/x86/dct.asm
>>>               openh264_common_yasm/dct.o:(.text+0x520) in archive obj/third_party/openh264/libopenh264_common_yasm.a

and in linking issues like:

ld.lld: error: can't create dynamic relocation R_386_32 against local symbol in readonly segment; recomp
ile object files with -fPIC or pass '-Wl,-z,notext' to allow text relocations in the output

Thanks for link, I'll have a look at it..

Ok. We have completly different problems, but thanks for the blog post, nice to see also other people are struggling with 32-bit builds. :-)

Ok. wrongly put. Not the fact they are struggling is nice, the fact they care to build 32-bit chromiums.. :-)

Re: [FIXED] 32-bit Chromium no longer stuck on old version?

Yeah, I saw this

             SLKLDFLAGS="-Wl,-z,notext"; LIBDIRSUFFIX=""

also Gentoo does the same.

But this is a little bit brutal, I would like to patch openh264 to add -DPIC here:

build/linux/unbundle/yasm.gn
if (current_cpu == "x86") {
  _yasm_flags = [
    "-DPIC",
    "-felf32",
    "-m",
    "x86",
  ]

Re: [FIXED] 32-bit Chromium no longer stuck on old version?

Ok, local patching h264 failed, the -DPIC doesn't do much in the yasm code, so the only way is allowing text segment fiddling in the linker
(as Slackware is doing it). Testing.. :-)

Forgot to regenerate gn.

Sweet new build systems: instead of 'LDFLAGS=xxx make' you have to regenerate the generator, so
it can generate ninja files with LDFLAGS in them. I don't know what they are smoking at Google, but... :-)
