Latest Chromium I686 – Illegal Instruction

I recently upgraded chromium on a 32-bit CentOS 6.4 system yesterday to version to chromium-28.0.1500.95-213514.i686. I then ran the script, but my copy of the script was before it was modified to check the architecture so it downloaded the 64 bit chrome rpm and installed that version of pepper. I tried to run chromium but was greeted with “Illegal Instruction (core dumped)”. I then noticed the 64-bit rpm was downloaded so I removed /opt/chromium/PepperFlash and completely re-installed chromium.i686. No go. So I then cleaned up /tmp, rebooted and removed ~/.cache/google-chrome and ~/.config/chrome. Unfortunately it is still crashing. I’m not sure if it has to do with the updated version or the botched 64-bit pepperflash installation, the script doesn’t seem to do anything other than create /opt/chromium/PepperFlash and update the .desktop file.

I ran an strace of /opt/chromium/chrome-wrapper and put it here: – it’s always crashing on statfs64(“/selinux”, ….) – not sure what that means though. /selinux exists, selinux is actually disabled.

Anyone else having issues like this?

Thank you,
