Latest Update KenBxs 6/27/12 6:13 AM
Updated to the latest Chrome version last night (June 26th) and this morning Chrome won't even start. Tried completely removing Chrome with Synaptic and reinstalling latest version and still not working.

Using Ubuntu 12.04

Re: Latest Update OldCoder56 6/27/12 6:48 AM
Had same issue on Fedora14. I too tried un-install/re-install.  But still now without Chrome!
Re: Latest Update yoo28 6/27/12 6:59 AM
Did you update to version 20.0.1132.43? I update to this version on my CentOS 6.2 installs and Chrome is broken also. The error I receive mentions that Chrome is unable to load a shared object file called: "libbz2.so.1.0". I posted my problem last night but no answers yet. I guess the Chrome team knows about this and are scrambling to fix it without admitting they released a broken and untested revision. That's what you call quality control.
Re: Latest Update KenBxs 6/27/12 7:16 AM
Update Manager in Ubuntu 12.04 last night (June 26, 2012) had the latest Google Chrome update. Installed and went to bed. This morning Google Chrome will not start at all. Tried completely uninstalling via Synaptic Package Manager and reinstalling via Ubuntu Software Center, twice. Won't even start.
Re: Latest Update Mattld 6/27/12 10:04 AM
Same here. The worst part is, I use Firefox and only carry chrome on my system to steal it's flash plug-in.
Re: Latest Update Spooky Tunes 6/27/12 10:50 AM
Same issue here. No output when started from command line, just a defunct sandbox process. Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS on i386. No option to go back to version 19, so I installed Chromium Browser 18.0.1025.151 for now.
Re: Latest Update Sie_Deen 6/27/12 11:07 AM
Hey folks,

Thanks for your reports. Are you getting any error messages when trying to start up Chrome (but it does not start)? 
Similar to how teksys28 mentioned seeing an error for "libbz2.so.1.0", are you seeing the same / different error / no error at all?

Re: Latest Update efwis 6/27/12 11:11 AM
didn't see this original post when I made mine, I am using Zorin OS 6 and have the same issue.

I do not get a error report or error message, it just fails to start

Re: Latest Update Mattld 6/27/12 11:36 AM
I am on Lubuntu 12.04. I see no error message at all. 2 items labelled Chrome pop up in the Task manager but after that, there is no response.
Re: Latest Update Pedro Gonçalves 6/27/12 1:08 PM
Having the same problem on Fedora Core 16.

When starting Chrome from the command line no error or warning is given, and i'm able to see it is running:

peter     2297  0.6  0.6  92320  8768 pts/1    S+   21:06   0:00 /opt/google/chrome/chrome
peter     2302  0.0  0.2  92544  3556 pts/1    S+   21:06   0:00 /opt/google/chrome/chrome
root      2303  0.0  0.0      0     0 pts/1    Z+   21:06   0:00 [chrome-sandbox] <defunct>

And nothing happens...

Re: Latest Update Sie_Deen 6/27/12 1:17 PM
TXCrackers, it sounds like you may be seeing a different issue, since this thread is about Chrome not starting up after the latest update. Can you start a new thread for the rendering issue that you are seeing?
Re: Latest Update KenBxs 6/27/12 1:20 PM
Hello,

I do not see any error at all.

Using:Applications>Internet>Google Chrome right click>Open or left click
Using:Desktop Icon previously installed Double Click
Removed via Synaptic Package Manager and reinstalled twice using Ubuntu Software

I do not get anything at all.

Re: Latest Update Sie_Deen 6/27/12 1:46 PM
Update: Thanks for all the details. I went ahead and filed this issue in our public issue tracker so that we can investigate this. If you would like to receive updates on the issue, you can click the star next to the issue number. 

--------
Hey folks, 
Please continue to let me know about your OS version; so far it seems limited to Linux.

If possible, can you let me know the Chrome version that you updated to, which is causing this issue? Since it's not possible to get this version from wrench > About Google Chrome, you may be able to get this detail from your package manager. You also may be able to get the version number list from ~/.config/google-chrome/ It may be listed in the Application folder.
Re: Latest Update Pedro Gonçalves 6/27/12 1:59 PM
Fedora Core 16, updated from google-chrome-stable-19.0.1084.56-140965.i386.
Re: Latest Update efwis 6/27/12 2:06 PM
on Zorin OS 6 Chrome version that caused my problems is 20.0.1132.43-r143823
Re: Latest Update Spooky Tunes 6/27/12 2:27 PM
Same issue as "Pedro Gonçalves" posted.
I am on Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS with google-chrome-stable 20.0.1132.43-r143823 i386
Upgrade through the apt repos from previous 19 stable which worked fine.
I flushed ~/.config/google-chrome and ~/.cache/google-chrome and still the same issue. Also, the folders did not get re-created. I tried to start under gdb, but never got any output (same as command line start).
Re: Latest Update Pedro Gonçalves 6/27/12 2:49 PM
I have misread the request, the problematic version is:

google-chrome-stable-20.0.1132.43-143823.i386

Re: Latest Update KenBxs 6/27/12 2:50 PM
Hello,

Which version of Chrome that I was running? Not sure, but believe it was the stable version from June 6th, 2012. Update Manager in Ubuntu 12.04 had a new Chrome stable version last night (June 26, 2012) which is Chrome 20.0.1132.43-r-143823.

Thank you,

KenBxs

Re: Latest Update Mattld 6/27/12 2:52 PM
On Lubuntu 12.04, Chrome version 20.0.1132.42-r143823(stable) from http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main. At first via Ubuntu Update Manager notification. Then, uninstall and installed again both via apt-get.
Re: Latest Update Mattld 6/27/12 4:12 PM
Thank you
Re: Latest Update Doktor1360 6/27/12 8:29 PM
Same issue... Fedora 16 boxen after a 'yum' update...

WTF... this issue appears to have complicated things with the installed Flash Player/Plugin too... {sighs}

Re: Latest Update vasa1 6/28/12 3:19 AM
You can get the version number by typing about: in the address bar and hitting enter.
Re: Latest Update yoo28 6/28/12 5:14 AM
How were you able to revert back to version 19? Where did you go to get the installation package?
Re: Latest Update lomapur 6/28/12 5:37 AM
same problem here, no error message, but 'top' command lists chrome as zombie process. All of them, tried also beta (which is still 20.0.1132.43 ) and unstable, same problems.

Fedora 17 here, running on Openbox.

Re: Latest Update vasa1 6/28/12 5:45 AM
If you haven't run apt-get clean or similar, the .deb may still be in /var/cache/apt/archives, at least for Ubuntu though I don't know how one would install it from there.
Re: Latest Update yoo28 6/28/12 5:58 AM
As far as finding an older and possible working version of Chrome, try going to Tucows.com (http://www.tucows.com/linux/internet/browser/web-browsers). The available version is 12.0.742.124 for 32bit and 64bit. It's not the best solution but it more than the no response by the Google-Chrome development team.

When the browser doesn't work it's not possible to do that...

In a terminal type:

google-chrome --version

And the version is shown.

While Google is working on getting Chrome working again you can all use Chromium, it sync with your google account also.

Re: Latest Update efwis 6/28/12 8:00 AM
anyone who uses a debian based distro and wants the last stable version of Chrome can download it from my server. This is the 32 bit .deb file from Google's website. the link is

Re: Latest Update jazcam 6/28/12 9:06 AM
Sie_Deen,

I had the same problem on my Kubuntu 12.04.  Chrome would not start at all.  I have isolated the problem to the pepflashplayer.  I changed the name of libpepflashplayer.so to "libpepflashplayerXX.so", then copied the adobe flash player (libflashplayer.so)file to the PepperFlash directory.  Chrome will now start, of course the flash player doesn't work.

I have had trouble with adobe flash player in any version, whether from the Ubuntu repository, or downloaded from Adobe to work in any browser (FF, Opera, Chromium, and now Chrome).

As an aside, when I did get the repository Adobe flash player (v. 11.2.202.236 ubuntu 0.12.04.1)to work at all in Chromium, it would not work in Google Maps street view, with the error to upgrade to version 10 or greater.

I'm using Ubuntu 12.04, and while my install will start, I can't use (of all things) Google Plus.

I get:

Re: Latest Update Sie_Deen 6/28/12 2:32 PM
Update: Thanks everyone for providing the details that we needed to investigate this issue!

For those of you who are seeing this issue on Linux: Chrome does not start after updating to 20.0.1132.43, and not a confluence of other types of issues, please try the following workaround:
Start up Chrome with the following flag: "--disable-bundled-ppapi-flash", and let me know if Chrome starts up without issues.
Re: Latest Update Pedro Gonçalves 6/28/12 3:05 PM
Apparently everything is fine, some videos on Youtube don't play and a warning is given that flash plugin is missing.

When lunching Chrome there are some errors, don't know if relevant but here they are:

google-chrome --disable-bundled-ppapi-flash
[4387:4387:7142204289:ERROR:browser_main_loop.cc(154)] Gtk: gtk_widget_size_allocate(): attempt to allocate widget with width -2147483648 and height 959

Re: Latest Update saabyurk 6/28/12 4:18 PM
Ditto for me. Beta chrome failed April time frame, reverted to stable Chrome, and now the same with it. I think I will not allow updates to Chromium until Chrome works again. :-(
Re: Latest Update Mattld 6/28/12 4:22 PM
Thanks efwis. All's well now, except that Google won't be supporting my ol' processor anymore. Oh well.
Re: Latest Update ghr5 6/28/12 5:15 PM
We have to use Flash version 10.3.183.20 from http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/archived-flash-player-versions.html
(in case Chromium guys can't do nothing about it)
Re: Latest Update jazcam 6/29/12 6:15 AM
Thanks efwis.  I did download and install and Chrome is working again.  The full version# is 19.0.1084.56 and the flash player (v. 11.2r202) must be packed with it.

Re: Latest Update mollotof 6/29/12 10:00 AM
yes !
it works....
But, as the flash plugin is disabled, a lot of sites are'nt working (youtube)...
using debian stable (2.6.32-5-686)
Re: Latest Update Sie_Deen 6/29/12 11:16 AM
@mollotof, when you start up Chrome with the flag "--disable-bundled-ppapi-flash", can you type in chrome://plugins in the address bar > click "+" on the top right of the page to display all details > locate the Flash section, and let me know what you see. Screenshot is fine.
I'm wondering if you have in the past disabled the Flash NPAPI plugins.
Re: Latest Update Spooky Tunes 6/29/12 9:00 PM
I think part of the problem is libgcflashplayer.so is missing in 20.0 debian i386 package. Adobe FlashPlayer 11.2, 10.3, and the plugin from version 19.0 will not load for me. I am using chromium at the moment with Adobe flash 10.3 which seems to work. I tested after removing ~/.config/google-chrome and ~/.cache/google-chrome directories.

Re: Latest Update dangar46 6/29/12 9:02 PM
Did that and still didn't work.  Did a re-install and now running version 20.0.1332.47 and still same problem.  Chrome will not start at all.  Running chromium right now, and not a big fan of it, it keeps giving me profile errors.
Re: Latest Update Gaman 6/30/12 2:22 AM
I had the same issue too - I need to get this restored!.
Re: Latest Update Gaman 6/30/12 2:23 AM
Google

Re: Latest Update OldCoder56 6/30/12 7:10 AM
Chrome 20 seems to have a extra directory 'PeperFlash' which contains latest flashPlayer .so [libpepflashplayer.so].  I think this is the replacement for libgcflashplayer.so and probably the cause of all our woes!!
Re: Latest Update OldCoder56 6/30/12 7:13 AM
that should be 'PepperFlash' NOT 'PeperFlash'

This what I read: For now, users who are experiencing this problem should run with the "--disable-bundled-ppapi-flash" flag. I don't see how that translates to "It doesn't look like there is any intention of a fix for this bug."
Re: Latest Update drazaelb 7/1/12 12:51 AM
At the risk of being a "me too", I have the same issue here on my 9 year old laptop. Also launches with --disable-bundled-ppapi-flash for me, although I get the following messages:

And at the risk of being a bitter jerk, I'd like to add that it's rather disappointing that Google assumes we can all afford new computers every few years. I thought that was only Microsoft's opinion.

This is what I read:
"...it's looking like an issue with older CPUs, possibly ones that don't support sse2 instructions. The Pepper Flash plugin probably won't support such systems, and we may just have to disable it if the necessary CPU capabilities aren't detected."

Which sounds to me like "if your CPU isn't modern enough to support SSE2 like we've decided it should be, then our only solution is to just turn off Flash for you."

Have you tried using the modern Internet without Flash? We shouldn't be so dependent on it, but for now it's something of a necessary evil.

Re: Latest Update vasa1 7/1/12 6:03 AM
What about the other plug-in?
Flash - Version: 11.2 r202
Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202
Name: Shockwave Flash
Version: 11.2 r202
Location: /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so
Type: NPAPI

That one should kick in and work. So you shouldn't be stuck without Flash. (I have that Flash version because I also have Firefox installed and Firefox uses that.)
By the way, I do feel the way you do about some other things like hardware acceleration: my laptop from 2009 is not worthy!

Re: Latest Update Pedro Gonçalves 7/1/12 10:44 AM
I'll be happy if someone can make the package available, also.

Meanwhile for Fedora users here is the solution i have found:

Chromium packed for Fedora here:

http://spot.fedorapeople.org/chromium/README.txt

There are some packages available, the relevant ones:

chromium.i686 : A WebKit powered web browser
chromium-ffmpegsumo.i686 : Media playback library for chromium

Install also:

gnash.i686 : GNU flash movie player

And it works pretty fine here.

The available version of Chromium doesn't have the latest improvements, like the ability to fetch open tabs in other synced devices and i have the impression that flash videos use more CPU than the Adobe flash player, besides that it works fine.

Re: Latest Update AWB70 7/4/12 8:58 AM
Do you have an old Athlon CPU? If so I have had the same problem and also with Chromium and firefox in ubuntu 12.04. The issue is because the new versions of Flash have been coded with SSE2 which is not supported by AMD Athlon CPU pre 2003. Uninstall Version 20 using software centre and revert back to Chrome Version 19.  This is the only way I can get a browser with flash functionality. It is already a known bug which adobe will not support so it's down to google to come up with a fix.
Re: Latest Update Andrew.Skretvedt 7/5/12 12:45 AM
Adding this option worked for me. What a relief!

Flash was working also via Adobe's Firefox plugin 11.2 (on an older AthlonXP1800+ cpu w/o SSE2 instructions...which has been wreaking havoc with newer flash releases under linux on hardware lacking SSE2 support...I'm hearing Adobe built 11.3 with an SSE2 cflag (perhaps accidentally) and provided no fallback.).

I managed to hang onto my previously working .deb installer (v19), which was a great workaround. Since the .deb adds a repository for automatic updating, how hard would it be to include the support for selecting prior released versions, as can be done with other debian/ubuntu packages?

Related chatter seems to suggest that people who didn't hang onto a working .deb package download from earlier, now have no obvious means of downloading a package containing an earlier (fully working) version via any advertised Google mechanism. IMHO, this too is a bug.

Re: Latest Update OldCoder56 7/5/12 3:10 AM
Indeed.  My trusty old AMD 3200XP has not let me down [until now]   ;o)
Re: Latest Update AWB70 7/5/12 5:12 AM
google-chrome-stable also needs un-ticked from the software update especially if you update automatically other wise it will install the non-working V20 without user intervention. Adobe is already aware of the bug  https://bugbase.adobe.com/index.cfm?event=bug&id=3161034 but has considered it not serious enough to warrant fixing which is very unfair to old athlon users for which I am sure is millions considering linux is often installed on low end systems. The grey area is now whos responsibility it is to sort this out. Adobe have pretty much washed their hands of it and google should be picking up the reigns. Voting for adobe to solve it may help in enough numbers. This is a serious situation leaving many people with the choice of not having flash or using an out of date version which is vulnerable. The argument is that it will speed up the demise of flash until html 5 but very few sites are full html 5 yet and won't be for a while. What exactly are we supposed to do until then! If it helps I'm going to set up a torrent for V19 chrome stable deb and post it on here if anyone needs to find a working copy for now.
Re: Latest Update OldCoder56 7/5/12 5:33 AM
I have registered with Adobe and *voted* for a fix.  I suggest everyone does the same!!
Re: Latest Update AWB70 7/5/12 6:09 AM
I will also do the same for what it's worth. The problem lies OC56 is that Adobe are not making any more builds just providing security updates for existing so whether they would rebuild it is doubtful. Chrome is picking up where adobe left of with their version built into the browser. There's more chance of google doing something about it as chrome will be THE only option left for linux users when it comes to a flash working browser. Still looking into it but I believe that V19 is still using the old Netscape API (NPAPI)version of flash. I also hear that this can be extracted and used in other browsers as a work around. Google will be aware if they want to add millions of amd athlon users to their list of people using chrome removing the SSE2 coding is the way forward. Hopefully anyway. Adobe also has some say in which flash google is allowed to use but hopefully google will re-build and take adobe right out of the picture which ultimately is what adobe want as well.

After update to that version, Chrome starts normally even without "--disable-bundled-ppapi-flash".
But it is impossible to play flash contents.
It seems that the internal flash plugin won't work on old CPUs.

Should I wait for another release?

Re: Latest Update zs1otb 7/12/12 7:22 AM
I tried to run Chrome after the update. Bingo it started up and I was just about to smile when it crashed and closed....

From there on... it doesn't launch at all.

Running it with the command:

google-chrome --disable-bundled-ppapi-flash
in terminal on Ubuntu 11.10 responded with:

Illegal instruction.

So on my ASUS AMD 32bit machine Chrome is NOT running at all now.

Re: Latest Update jazcam 7/13/12 10:42 AM

Getting mixed results.
1. Chrome picked up an older version of Flash, 10.3 r183 located in /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so.  I disabled this plugin in chrome://plugins and that seemed to work at first.  However, Chrome doesn't show any other plugins, such as PepperFlash as an alternative, even after closing and restart. The flash player works ok on MSN, but does not work at all on Google maps, street view.  Maps requests flashplayer version 10 or newer.  Also, only works on some YouTube videos.  While I do not get a crash error, the message from the player is simply that the video is unavailable.

2. I replaced the old 10.3 r183 version mentioned above with 11.2 r202 in the same directory, and enabled it in chrome://plugins.  As I expected nothing worked on any of the sites, until once again I disabled it.

3. In short, some flash content works, some doesn't, and Chrome does not show any flash player in chrome://plugins, except those that do not work.  Also, I do not have any startup flags set and Chrome is starting ok.
I have version 20.0.1132.57

Re: Latest Update older dude 7/13/12 10:51 AM
Where is a safe place to download the new version for Linux?
Re: Latest Update AWB70 7/16/12 8:31 AM
The reason some videos etc work and some don't is because the ones that work are html5. Flash is dying off and web sites will now be moving to html5, some youtube videos are already in that format. As for flash it is not working with non SSE2 cpu.
Re: Latest Update AWB70 7/16/12 9:29 AM
Reading through most of these posts it seems that most people are suffering from the same problem so here's my understanding of the problem backed up with research maybe Google can confirm or deny any or some of it to prevent people going round in circles.
Firstly in a terminal (ctrl/alt/T) run "cat /proc/cpuinfo" without the quotes which should give you some info about your CPU. Where it says flags if it doesn't say SSE2 then your cpu is not supported by the current flash. This is the case with AMD cpu pre 2003 and ATI ones not sure which.
Adobe flash and chromes pepper flash which came out with chrome v20 have been written with SSE2 coding which means it will NEVER work regardless of what you do. It is wrote in a code your cpu doesn't understand. Gnash available from the software centre works but has its limitations.
The issue has been well documented here https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=410547 here http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=134940&can=1&q=20.0.1132.43&colspec=ID%20Pri%20Mstone%20ReleaseBlock%20Area%20Feature%20Status%20Owner%20Summary and here https://bugbase.adobe.com/index.cfm?event=bug&id=3161034
A list of CPU's affected....
Intel Pentium III Coppermine
Intel Pentium III Tualatin
Intel Celeron Mendocino
Intel Celeron Coppermine-128
Intel Celeron Tualatin-256
Intel Pentium M
AMD Athlon XP
Now there may be an issue where Chrome 20 won't start that may be un-related and this is getting confused with flash not working problem. Ultimately if your CPU doesn't support SSE2 neither version of flash will or can work.
So where does that leave us? for now I have rolled back to version 19 of chrome which has the old version of flash (still working) but obviously if you update flash or chrome your back to square one and this leaves flash vulnerable. Adobe up to press have said they will only provide security updates and are winding it down. That leaves google, until google say they are going to bring out a pepper flash that supports our cpu's then we are between a rock and a hard place. So the question is google are you going to do that are not? If so you will have millions of these cpu owners who can only use chrome as a flash enabled browser as customers ;) Until html5 is fully fledged anyway.


Re: Latest Update older dude 7/16/12 9:43 AM
Thank you for understandable explanation at last.

Do you you know where I can find Chrome Version 19
and also some installation assistance?
I could then disable the Chrome updates and have a flash-player again.

I wish someone from Google would confirm this: in other words, not only will Pepper  Flash not work but you say that even the other Flash (direct from Adobe):

Re: Latest Update AWB70 7/16/12 10:17 AM
I've had a quick look about and can't seem to find ways of rolling back to the last working version 19. I did find this http://www.4shared.com/file/EutldELj/google-chrome-stable_190108456.html but I'm not sure if that was the last version before 20 and unsure of the source! Most links to 19 turn out to be 20 as they have been updated ;( If someone can post a working link to 19 for everyone who is suffering it would be appreciated.
I'm only familiar with ubuntu but I guess it will be pretty similar on most linux systems. Firstly uninstall google-chrome-stable from the software centre and uninstall flash also from the software centre. Re-boot and just double click the v19 deb file which should install itself. Remember to knock off updates for chrome in software updater or the next time you run it you will be automatically upgraded to 20.
Failing that if no one can find a working copy of 19 deb please let me know and I will set up a file share torrent. Due to my broadband package I will only be able to leave this running from midnight to 8am UK. I'm also not sure of any legal implications but as this was already openly available I can't see there being a problem. What would be a better fix would be Chrome to put out a link for the old version until they come up with something to work round it. Perhaps google don't want you to be going back but at least acknowledging the issue would be a start.
Re: Latest Update AWB70 7/16/12 10:28 AM
Yes both versions, adobe and pepper flash will not work on these cpus. The flash that came with v19 does work as it was the last to not have SSE2 coding. I am still looking into it but I think the v19 flash was the one used by Firefox and then FF gave up on it. I have seen posts on other boards where that version of flash has been extracted and used in other browsers to get them working. I was having problems with other browsers not displaying flash which brought me to chrome in the first place. I was a Firefox user but installing chrome worked until v20 was released and it stopped working same as the other browser. Investigation turned out the V20 also had the SSE2 coding. Luckily I hadn't deleted it and could roll back.
Re: Latest Update AWB70 7/16/12 10:36 AM
Doing a little more investigation the version of adobe that changed to SSE2 is 11.2.202.228 and after.
Chrome version 19 was using the old netscape flash API (NPAPI)my version 11.2 r202
Chrome 20 was released with the new PPAPI (pepper flash) which also requires SSE2 coding.

Going back to 19 is so far the only fix I can find but I'd love to be wrong.

Re: Latest Update AWB70 7/16/12 10:58 AM
BTW I should probably say this is not purely a chrome issue. If you use Firefox, search flash in the software centre and install or go to a flash page and let the browser install it it then go to http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/find-version-flash-player.html you will not see your version of the video running.
The problem we have here is Flash is being done away with in favour of html5 which is the future of browsing. The content is built into the page without the need for browser plugins.
Adobe's last build was coded in SSE2 and they are not building anymore AFAIK, they have essentially passed the reigns over to chrome who since v20 have also used SSE2 in their version pepper flash. There is a link I posted earlier where you can request adobe fix it if you want to but I feel google would have more promise.
It's a case of who shouts loudest but unfortunately people affected have old systems so not many about and only affects Linux, enough said. They are making our machines obsolete until html5 anyway and can't see why they should keep it going for a minority. Unfortunately we are the minority.
Re: Latest Update KenBxs 7/16/12 11:05 AM
Hello,

I am the original poster of this minor problem. Rather surprised that there is no fix.
What I did early on was to download version 19 from ELWIS's server that is located in post number 30, or so. It was the version for Linux and has worked just fine ever since. I disabled the updates for Google Chrome in my Update Manager so I wouldn't get the non-working version again.

Thank you

I am also surprised that this hasn't been fixed. My windows xp on the same system works with version 20. I can only gather from that that for some reason it's to do with the way the Linux version is coded rather than blanket not working on all SSE2 machines. The windows version is also SSE2 but still works because it is written correctly to get round this problem. A fix for Linux users shouldn't be too much of a problem I guess. This is only a "minor" problem due to linux systems being less vulnerable to malicious attacks than it's windows counterpart but we are being made to use a browser that can't have flash security updates. A lot of malicious code uses flash which is why Adobe have promised to make security updates for the next 5 years. Had this been a windows issue I believe it would have been fixed by now! In Chromes defence, no other browsers are doing anything. Opting to use Adobes version instead and pretty much deflecting the responsibility back to Adobe. It is to chromes credit working on pepper flash, hopefully they can and will fix it.

It's a failed update. Now the flashplugin fails to load on any webpage that uses the flashplayer. Well, I guess it's back to Chrome version 19.

System: CentOS 6.2, GNOME 2.28, kernel 2.6.32-220, PIII/1GHz, 1GB/RAM

Just thought I'd let people with the SSE2 issues I have came across another workaround for now. Install playonlinux http://www.playonlinux.com/en/ available from the software centre. On there you can install windows software running through wine. As the problem only appears to be affecting Linux systems you can install chrome for windows (or any browser you want to that matter) and all work with flash enabled sites.

Thanks AWB70. I've been pulling my hair out for a day trying to get flash working on an old Athlon XP PC. I thought it was a permissions issue initially but the problem you've identified affects the hardware i'm using. What a shame there won't be a fix.
Re: Latest Update AWB70 7/23/12 5:31 AM
No problem. I spent a couple of days getting to the bottom of it. Hopefully it will save time for some others. I actually came across the problem the same day as chrome 20 was released which threw even more confusion into it. I like many others initially blamed chrome itself.
Seems odd there's till no fix yet, from what I can make out it's just bad coding on linux flash. The windows version is still SSE2 but coded correctly it will run on a non SSE2 system. Nobody seems to be in any rush to solve it though. Worries me that Firefox and Chrome have intentions of disabling plugins that are not up to date for security reasons while not making one we can update to. Perhaps we will be back in the same boat with no flash if this is implemented.
Re: Latest Update FecklessGoober 7/31/12 12:56 AM
I'm thinking our problem is lost in here. I might create a new thread dedicated to the SSE2 problem on linux and see if it gets looked at.
Re: Latest Update AWB70 9/11/12 2:30 AM
Did you do this? I agree that the problem is lost in here. Google seem to be trying to solve some issues with V20 that are un-related. Looking at the hardware most people in this thread have the SSE2 coding issue. It would also help if people voted for a fix here https://bugbase.adobe.com/index.cfm?event=bug&id=3154276 and shame Adobe into doing something. It's been months now for something they don't appear to want to fix but unless Linux users raise the priority they are not likely to do so. If Adobe fix the flash player it would leave Google to work on other issues and the lines wouldn't be as blurred as to who's fault it is.
Re: Latest Update Mattld 9/11/12 9:50 AM
Adobe no longer has any involvement with Flash for Linux. http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTEyNzc . Chrome 20 is Googles first usage of their own version of the Flash plugin. It broke pre-SSE2 compatibility in Linux only. Furthermore, Google does not have any plans to fix it.
Re: Latest Update AWB70 9/11/12 10:20 AM
Real nice of Adobe. Adobe must have also broke pre-SSE2 compatibility before signing off as the Flash in the repository doesn't work with other browsers as well. Is this confirmed that Google will definitely not be fixing it in future releases of it's pepper plugin? Nobody from google seems to be commenting on whether or not they intend to. I heard somewhere, I'll see if I can find the link again that there is also a chance that for security reasons chrome intends to disable any plugins in the browser that aren't up to date! If this is the case people with non SSE2 cpu's won't even be able to rip the last working flash and use that with the updated browser.
Bit of a travesty really, I personally have 3 machines all that have non compliant cpu's in. The quicker HTML5 is fully fledged the better.  
Re: Latest Update Mattld 9/11/12 11:31 AM
In reality these are two different issues. This thread was started because Google Chrome 20 would crash upon startup for some people. It turned out to be a Linux only, Flash plugin issue. So in order to solve the crashing issue, the Flash plugin had to be disabled. This bug was reported here: http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=134940 and is marked as "fixed".

The broken Flash plugin for pre-SSE2 processors is a separate bug. That has been reported here http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=134940 and is marked as "unconfirmed". The last comment from thestig does not sound hopeful that a solution is a priority.
