I have uploaded new chromium 100 packages for Slackware. The chromium-ungoogled 100 packages are currently being built and will follow shortly.
What’s with all these updates that follow rapidly on each others’ heels? Just like the recent Chromium 99 security update which addressed a single critical vulnerability, last monday Google announced on their official blog the immediate availability of Chromium 100.0.4896.75. This hotfix release plugs a single hole which Google deemed serious enough to warrant the update. See CVE-2022-1232. The difference with last week is that no known exploit of this vulnerability is reported yet.
Still, it’s highly recommended that you upgrade ASAP.
My Chromium 100.0.4896.75 packages can be downloaded from my own repository (or any mirror that has synced up), for instance:
- Europe: https://slackware.nl/people/alien/slackbuilds/chromium/ or
- US: https://us.slackware.nl/people/alien/slackbuilds/chromium/
Once I have finished compiling the un-googled version of chromium and uploaded the packages, I will mention it in the comments section below and you can download them from: https://slackware.nl/people/alien/slackbuilds/chromium-ungoogled/ or https://us.slackware.nl/people/alien/slackbuilds/chromium-ungoogled/ .
Until I get tired of compiling for Slackware 14.2 (aka once I have migrated my last server to 15.0) these packages will work on Slackware 14.2 and newer. I provide 32bit as well as 64bit variants.
