Hmmmm...on my Lenovo Notebook running the Intel Core i3 processor, Chromium, just now, started to crash on launch.
I went to the video config tool in PCC and changed to "Nouveau." Before I accepted the changes, I cancelled out. Just a gut feeling I should wait...it's the only system I have to get on the internet here at the office. I'm not using Windows for internet due to a past virus attack.
Anyhow, I made sure the settings were the same when I started and now Chromium launches. Playing a video now...gonna close and try to relaunch. Hang on.
