installing Chromium snapshots


Execute the provided $CHROMIUM_INSTALL_DIR/chrome-wrapper instead of the binary executable, it will create necessary symlinks to system libraries.

After unpacking the zipped snapshot file on my openSUSE Linux system, privileges were wrong:
files and directories were only readable, writable, and executable for the owner, which was root;

As a very quick solution I made “myself” the owner :
$ chown -R myself $CHROMIUM_INSTALL_DIR

Of course there are better solutions than this, e.g. like this one:
$ cd $CHROMIUM_INSTALL_DIR
$ chmod -R a+r .
$ find . | while read f; do ! test -L “$f” && test -x “$f” && chmod –changes a+x “$f”; done
