[Unstable] Update seems to cause Chrome based browsers to segfault

Apologies for posting and running, got stuff to do and no time to dissect.

Have rolled back to 28/6/20 to fix. Will have to look at it later.

I could not reproduce a segfault with chromium but for instance Telegram no longer uses system decorations, nor the native notifications.
I'll try soon other chrome based browsers on this install.

This is really weird..............

It appears to be related to one or all of:

xorg-fonts-100dpi 
xorg-fonts-75dpi 
xorg-fonts-misc 
xorg-fonts-alias

Something has changed @bogdancovaciu any ideas?

Apparently the xorg-font-utils got deprecated, so might be the case that also xorg-fonts-encodings and xorg-fonts-alias hence terminus-font plus those fonts will have to go too, but don't quote me on that just yet as i'm not perfectly sure how this will go about.

Update: xorg-fonts-encodings can't be removed nor the cause of the issue as xorg-server and all depends on it.

Potentially it is also nss, but am still dissecting :smiley:

Yeah, doing tests here too. I was wrong about some things i mentioned above. :blush:

@bogdancovaciu found the problem - linux58 (I forgot I was running it, because I uninstalled it, but of course timeshift put it back, old age FTW!!).

@schinfo FYI current build of linux58 is causing problems with browers using sandboxes.

That is why linux58 is still rc, and FYI - I'm not Linus Torvalds !?!

I know, your language is "more refined". Thought you built the kernels, apologies :smiley:

Yes, I "build" the kernel, but I not "make" it - a small but very important difference
:wink:

For info - the bug is fixed by upstream and with "my build" linux58-5.8rc3.d0629.g7c30b85-1 in unstable

Thanks also for the Telegram fix. :smiley:
