Post latest version of chrome no longer supports mepis
chrome Version 26.0.1410.43 now leaves a message that says " google chrome has stopped updating and no longer supports this version of your O.S." (iI am using Mepis version 11)

When I clicked on the "learn More" link a table showed all the hardware and o.s that chrome will support. It seems it will not support debian linux below version 6.0.

I am new user of linux and would like to know what version of linux does mepis use?

Thanks

You can check your sources.list for this information: http://www.mepis.org/docs/en/index.php? ... t_MEPIS_11

Mepis 11 defaults to using the Debian Squeeze repositories

In a M11 LiveISO session the latest 32bit google chrome package (google-chrome-stable_26.0.1410.43-r189671_i386.deb) installs okay on my old 32bit system (using an AMD XP 3000 cpu) but when I run it I get the warning you're talking about and it opens this page: http://support.google.com/chrome/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=95411

Mepis 11 should be okay as far as the Debian 6+ requirement is concerned, but my system doesn't meet the "Intel Pentium 3 / Athlon 64 or later" requirement. It looks like they might be locking out older 32bit AMD systems (maybe because they lack SSE2 support?).

edit: there's also the possibility Chrome is looking for some string in the /etc/issue or /etc/lsb-release files and M11 doesn't supply what it needs.

Thank you Saist for your reply.

I can check off the repository information update from my list. That file is current. Checked to make sure I have the latest versions of my installed software.

So what you are saying that since I am using an amd athlon xp 2800, chrome might be locking me out because of it?

It should actually say future versions will no longer support Debian versions less than 7.0 (Wheezy). It's going to need a minimum of GTK 2 2.24. Squeeze and M11 have ver. 2.20

We do have 2.24 in the experimental CR from Tim's backport, but will have to wait for the next Chrome update to test if it will work with that, unless someone tries the unstable Chrome...

Looks like it might be something other than the cpu type, my 32bit AMD XP 3000 works okay with Chrome in my M12 install.

I found this: http://www.h-online.com/open/news/item/ ... 03451.html where it looks like Chrome is checking the gtk version and is requiring at least version 2.24. Debian Squeeze and a stock M11 install use gtk 2.20. There is a 2.24 gtk version in one of CR repos added for Stevo's KDE 4.6.5 & 4.7.4 upgrades.

I just installed Chrome Unstable using Synaptic (since the Chrome repos are in my sources), and the About Chrome screen is showing Version 27.0.1453.6 dev

It installed and works fine in my copy of Mepis 11.

But, I'm seeing GTK 2.24.10-2 libraries installed (libgtk2.0-bin, etc.). So, I must have updated to a newer GTK version from the CR at some point.

Same here. It works okay in Wheezy but errors in Mepis 11.
