[SOLVED] Chromium is crashing almost each 5 mins

So here is my problem: Chromium 22 (newest version) is crashing almost each 5 mins. The only way to close it after crash is to exec "killall chromium". With crashing I mean that it stops to response. I tried to downgrade to version 21, but it didn't help me. I have no idea where to start looking for the problem. Any help, please?

Re: [SOLVED] Chromium is crashing almost each 5 mins

Check the resource usage. Especially RAM.

Do you have a swap partition/swap file?

I'm not using Swap, but I have 8 GB of RAM (90% of it is free!).

Re: [SOLVED] Chromium is crashing almost each 5 mins

Are you using gpu acceleration in Chromium?

Any other running 'apps'?

Idk. How to check it?

Output of "ps -A": http://sprunge.us/SMVT?shell .

Also, I disabled all extensions. It doesn't help neither.

Move or rename ~/.config/chromium/ and see if it happens then.


Try it without Java or Flash.

You can enable/disable that on the "chrome://flags/" page.

On my system, gpu acceleration makes Chromium stall or even crash when other gpu-processes are active on the computer. When Chromium is the only "app" running everything works okay.

This seems to be the problem. Moved it and started Chromium w/o conf at all — everything works!

I will try to log in Google account once again. I hope that Chromium won't start to crash. smile

Re: [SOLVED] Chromium is crashing almost each 5 mins

Okay, that's weird. After I installed extensions I use daily — crashing started once again. Seems that it's one of the extensions I use. Newest one I have is Vimium.

Really, hmmmm....

Re: [SOLVED] Chromium is crashing almost each 5 mins

So the conclusion is: Chromium is crashing when one ore more extensions are enabled (it doesn't matter what extensions).

Move "~/.config/chromium" again and stop visiting shitty porn sites which may attempt to stress the browser to open up a bug (exploit).

Also, remove Java and Flashplugin, for your own good.

Re: [SOLVED] Chromium is crashing almost each 5 mins

No pr0n is viewed. Nothing unusual is opened. sad

^ weird sentence

I can't remove Flash because I need it sometimes. And I don't have Java plugin, as far as I know it.

I will try Chrome from AUR.

Re: [SOLVED] Chromium is crashing almost each 5 mins

It can also be a space issue... Do you have a separate home partition? I don't. My /home is part of the root partition (10 GB the entire partition), and I had the misfortune once to have it completely filled.

If you have 100-150 MB left and you see a few Youtube videos, you'll quickly get to 0 KB free. And then Chromium may start to crash, perhaps as a preventive measure. In contrast, Firefox keeps going, but with some very weird side effects, like pages/videos/images half loaded, missing  images, unable to login on some sites that require cookies, etc.

Disk space isn't a problem.

I'm now using Google Chrome and for the present it works.

Re: [SOLVED] Chromium is crashing almost each 5 mins

It seems that this fixed the problem somehow. smile

P.S. It didn't actually work when I switched to Google Chrome (previous post).

Re: [SOLVED] Chromium is crashing almost each 5 mins

Hi. I am experiencing the same problem on a laptop. Frequently Chromium generates a lot of I/O disk activity, practically freezing my computer, going on till crashing or shut down (if I can) with killall. Firefox crash less but does it anyway.

I am not using swap either. Awesome is my window manager. My roommate has a similar configuration and the same inconveniences. I have a desktop where this does not happens, I think that Arch is not up to date there.

Just reporting the issue. I will see if I find something...

If a thread is marked as [SOLVED], do not reply stating the equivalent of "I am having a similar issue.."; start a new thread and link to the [SOLVED] thread, if relevant.
