    Phoronix: Chrome/Chromium To Require Newer Version Of Linux Kernel

    Those using the bleeding-edge version of Google's Chrome/Chromium web-browser are discovering you need to be using a relatively new version of the Linux kernel to avoid issues...

    Well, this is bad news for me. I still run the older Fedora19 kernel (3.14 I believe) because the newer radeon kernel driver crashes my Xorg regularly.

      Chrome 40.0.2214.115-1 actually works good on Linux 3.15.10 (zen-686).

          What Radeon GPU is this? I don't have any problems with a 4870, 6850, 7950, R9 270X, A4-5000, A8-6400K or A8-7600 with any recent kernels.

            lol - not sure what they're talking about

            running chromium 42 here on 3.19-based kernel

            and there's no SECCOMP_FILTER_FLAG_TSYNC

              Ubuntu 14.04 (trusty) has the necessary change since November
              Ubuntu 14.04.2 + 14.10 (utopic) have the necessary change since October

              So Ubuntu is fine...

                Too bad it 3.17 wasn't the linux 4.0 release. That would have made it very easy to differentiate.

                  just took a look in the source code - it already seems to be there


                  @davidbepo:

                  perhaps that feature flag already got backported ?
