    It apparently doesn't make sense for Google to offer the browser as separate download because almost nobody will download it that way. But what you can see on the ARM Chromebook screenshots is definitely Chrome.
    Oracle JDK is not the same as OpenJDK, but both will run Java applications. OpenJDK is now the preferred method to install Java on Linux distributions. https://blogs.oracle.com/henrik/entr...openjdk_as_the

      How it is possible to install and update Chrome in openSUSE on ARM Chromebook if there isn't rpm package?

        With ChromeOS it is possible.
        You will have to ask that to OpenSUSE people why they have no package for ARM, not even of Chromium. I think it may have to do with lack of interest in adjusting their build scripts. https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...AFactory%3AARM

          AFAIK Google is only company which can create rpm package with Chrome because Flash and PDF viewer aren't open source. Chromium doesn't include Flash.

            Isn't it sad that you depend on three blobs, and they're standing between you and a piece of nice hw.

              Flash and PDF are open specifications that anyone can implement. Flash must die violently.

                Flash is cancer and aids, I no longer use flash

                you can watch all youtube videos in html5 and I mean ALL.

                and you can watch porn by going to the mobile version of the famous porn sites (not me tho since porn is for jews)


                about the chromebook you can read some reports online

                nah man

                it's a pain to even get ubuntu arm running on the thing and basically linux on arm is wayyssssssssss behind x64

                and still nobody clarified me about the gfx driver situation

                as much as I want to jump into the arm train

                I'm going to buy a dell inspiron 15r intel i5 laptop instead.

                the wi fi is intel centrino so it should run shit out of the box like this one does.

                  I disabled flash and enabled html5 in youtube.
                  8 of 10 videos in subscribed channels don't work (Flash is required).

                    they do

                    1. just click on the channel button itself and some will play

                    2. just edit the tag as youtube.com/embed/7ysdf89

                    I will try to make a video to explain it but I basically can say 100% of all yt videos in html5

                      ARM is too slow to decode H264/WebM .
                      Does Chromebook with openSUSE support HW decoding of H264/WebM ?

                          HTML5 video will be displayed as slide show on ARM without HW acceleration.

                            Your video says it requires flash.

                            There is also another way. You just add /tv# before /watch?=...

                            ie. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qlEo_G5Crmk becomes http://www.youtube.com/tv#/watch?v=qlEo_G5Crmk

                            But still this inconvenience is just plain stupid and youtube should fix that. So much for pushing an open web

                              thanks for the TV tip

                              that is useful

                              and of course with other sites you can open the link in vlc thus making the installation of flash unnecessary.


                              as far as I can tell the reason youtube makes you jump thru hoops and doesn't fully implement html5 is because of ads
