Where to download Chrome 32bit since it has been discontinued by Google?
Google has discontinued the 32bit Version of Chrome so on a 32bit Debian machine it's not possible anymore to update the APT repository:
W: Failed to fetch http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/dists/stable/Release Unable to find expected entry 'main/binary-i386/Packages' in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file)
Also has the .deb file removed from Google servers as it seems.
Is there any alternative
.debdownload of the last release (46?) available somewhere?
Reason: For an automated Debian build system (
debootstrap-based) I urgently need a way to install Google Chrome 32bit v46 (or similar). Switching to another browser (including Chromium) is not a quick enough option for me at the moment..
The last one I'm aware of was `google-chrome-stable_48.0.2564.116-1_i386.deb`
While it's not a full answer - if you google for the above filename, you'll find it on plenty of mirrors where it's not been deleted yet. This is a time sensitive question however, so a bit unusual for StackExchange.
How can I verify the authenticity of the package. Any way to find a Release file?
Download google-chrome-stable_48.0.2564.116-1_i386.deb here http://bbgentoo.ilb.ru/distfiles/
ArchLinux also references the latest official Google Chrome 32bits version with checksums at: https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/tree/PKGBUILD?h=chromium-widevine.
So your question is kind of time sensitive (unless someone starts offering unofficial 32bit builds of Chrome, if that's even possible). I'll try and provide a slightly more generic answer to the question, "the package I want is no longer available, what can I do?"
One solution, is that if you have a machine which recently downloaded the
.deb, it may still be present in
trinity:/usr# ls -l /var/cache/apt/archives/google* -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 47451856 Feb 3 22:00 /var/cache/apt/archives/google-chrome-stable_48.0.2564.103-1_i386.deb -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 47625502 Feb 9 18:40 /var/cache/apt/archives/google-chrome-stable_48.0.2564.109-1_i386.deb -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 47539368 Feb 18 20:22 /var/cache/apt/archives/google-chrome-stable_48.0.2564.116-1_i386.deb -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 47583326 Jan 20 22:41 /var/cache/apt/archives/google-chrome-stable_48.0.2564.82-1_i386.deb -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 47294044 Jan 27 20:58 /var/cache/apt/archives/google-chrome-stable_48.0.2564.97-1_i386.deb
If you want to use it on a small number of machines, you could just copy the
.debfile and install it manually using dkpg.
However, if you want to install it on many machines, or use it for builds, then one option is to build your own local Debian repository for it.
You don't need to use Chrome application. When you have a debian mirror such as:
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian sid main contrib non-free
You can install Chrome as
chromium, Chrome forked from chromium project. You can do :
apt-get install chromium
@PersianGulf True, but it also lacks proprietary things like Flash, etc. But maybe those can be installed easily?
