Chromium SFS version 71.0.3578.80

December 25, 2018 — BarryK

I have updated the Chromium SFS, from 69.0.3497.100 to 71.0.3578.80. I used a package from Slackware 14.2:

Running EasyOS, if you click on the "sfsget" desktop icon, the new SFS will be offered to download. It is hosted courtesy of, here:

The SFSget GUI installer currently has a limitation, it has no mechanism for updating SFS files. If you already have Chromium installed, SFSget will detect this, and will ask you to first delete it.

Deleting an existing container is easy enough. Go to "Filesystem --> Easy Container Management".

However, it would be better if could keep the "chromium" container, just update the SFS. I have written that into the to-do list.

For now, there is something that will probably work. Use SFSget to download the new Chromium SFS, do not install.

Then, using ROX-Filer, look here:


...see the chromium.sfs symlink. Chromium must not be running, open a terminal and update the symlink:

# ln -snf ../../sfs/easyos/oe/pyro/chromium_71.0.3578.80-bk1_amd64.sfs chromium.sfs

Not essential, but you can also update the /mnt/wkg/containers/chromium/specs file, just copy the new one:

# cp -f ../../sfs/easyos/oe/pyro/chromium_71.0.3578.80-bk1_amd64.specs specs

Then click on "chromium" icon on the desktop, and it should start.
