Chromium,

Postby christoff522 on Fri May 20, 2011 7:47 pm

The chromium in the repositories seems to be a bit old, I had an old apt sources list from when I was on crunchbang, and the version is 3 versions later (deb testing is 6 crunchbang is 9) So I thought I would give you the repository so you can upgrade your version :)

Now I have no Key for it, so you will get the annoying gpg error, but you can access it, if you already have chromium on it will smoothly upgrade :)

A newer version of Chromium (at the moment, 11) has always been available in Debian unstable, even though it's never been able to migrate to testing for several reasons (see its QA page: http://packages.qa.debian.org/c/chromium-browser.html). My advice for those who want to run an up-to-date Chromium is to setup a testing/sid configuration (i.e. APT pinning).

Thank you, even after 4 years of linux I can still be a noob sometimes.
