Is chrome really dead? Blank screen issue

Postby sk8harddiefast » 17 Jun 2010, 01:40

Hi guys.
Yesterday i open chrome and i had this issue.
Chrome not loading nothing! Just a blank screen!
I search on google and i found that there is serious issue with chrome and thousands of windows/unix users have the same problem.
Anyone who knows what happens?

Could you drop the funeral link?
I just opened Chrome and it's still alive (at least the reincarnation at mine :))

I don't speak very good english but googling i understood that something goes wrong with chrome.
If you google: Chrome not loading any page, Chrome shows blank screen etc you will find a lot of results
With a very quick search i found this.

So what errors does chrome give you if you run it from a terminal?

Works fine for me. I'm having issues with some extensions every now and then but nothing too serious. Chorme itself is working great.

Note that you need this in [FILE]/etc/sysctl.conf[/FILE] for Chrome to work well (or else pages appear to be hanging, are rendered partially, or garbled):

Did you activate the sysctl? Chrome works 99.9% here. A _very_ occasional glitch, but I've forgotten about FF by now.

On this my install (8-STABLE, i386, KDE4) I didn't modify [FILE]sysctl.conf[/FILE] at all and Chrome runs like never better.
I assume you first had Chrome running fine and suddenly it failed, doesn't it?
What changes did you do to your system in the meantime? Updates? Kernel/world rebuilds...what?

3 alsa ports were commited recently. Did you successfully replaced original ("alien") alsa ports first required by Chrome with the new ones?
What's your Chrome version and do you still have its port intact?

No. I guess that portsnap did that. If not, how to do it?
After recompile all my packages finally chrome worked :)

On FreeBSD, this problem is probably related to that last line of debug output that you pasted:

Code: Select all
ERROR:chrome/app/chrome_dll_main.cc(234)] Gdk: shmget failed: error 12 (Cannot allocate memory)

The free build of Chromium relies on SysV shared memory to pass rendered webpages between processes, which is why the [FILE]kern.ipc.shm_allow_removed=1[/FILE] flag helps it perform better. My guess is that you probably upgraded to FreeBSD 7.3 or some newer version of FreeBSD that broke compatibility. For example, builds compiled on FreeBSD 7.3 will fail on 7.2 with the same shmget error. I have moved the subscriber builds to file-backed sharing, which is what the Windows and Mac Chromium builds use.

Any universal solution so far?

I also have blank pages with multiple dying threads
Code: Select all
 Thread 3c35000 has exited with leftover thread-specific data after 4 destructor iterations


Tried everything above, none works.

Maybe this help.
http://chromium.hybridsource.org/old/i386/chromium-5.0.359.tbz (i386)
http://chromium.hybridsource.org/old/amd64/chromium-5.0.359.tbz (amd64)
from http://chromium.hybridsource.org/
Also you must go to /etc/sysctl.conf and add this line
Code: Select all
kern.ipc.shm_allow_removed=1

After do
Code: Select all
/etc/rc.d/sysctl restart

and try again.

Just for future reference if anybody came across this thread

Giving [file]kern.ipc.shmall[/file] a higher value will solve this problem

[CMD="#"]sysctl kern.ipc.shmall=17731[/CMD]

to make it work on boot :

[CMD="#"]echo 'kern.ipc.shmall=17731' >> /etc/sysctl.conf[/CMD]
