Chromium 102 (regular and ungoogled) for 64bit Slackware

Google has released the sources for Chromium 102.0.5005.61. The release notes mention 32 security fixes. One of those (CVE-2022-1853) is listed as ‘critical’ and supposedly an attacker can craft a website in such a way that if you visit that URL, the attacker can compromise or take over your local computer. No clicking required.

And again it proves to be quite hard to compile 32bit packages for the new Chromium.
The Google developers create new hurdles almost every major release in their ‘assumption’ that there is no 32bit Linux out there that they should support. I am still working out what I need to fix/patch.

Therefore you can only get 64bit chromium packages here (NL mirror) or here (US mirror). Likewise the chromium-ungoogled packages (64bit only) are found here (NL mirror) or here (US mirror).
