Fedora 15 - Chrome 14.x won't start for you?

I was having this problem after and update and first ran it from the console to find out what the problem was:

# running google-chrome from the command line.
$ google-chrome

/opt/google/chrome/chrome: error while loading shared libraries: cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied

# seems this is due to some permission errors, so you can run chrome 
# without the sandbox...
$ google-chrome --no-sandbox

# ...or you can fix the permission problem by turning it off.
$ sudo setenforce 0

Hope this helps you get back into your Chrome experience! ;-)


  1. many thanks for the helpful posting.

  2. thanks a lot by italian user

  3. Very frustrating problem right now... every update breaks the fix above, I have moved back to Firefox for now.
