Bug Description

when I try to launch chromium with superkb, it throws me this error:

[3880:3880:4927910303:FATAL:/mnt/chromium/rpmbuild/BUILD/chromium-20091119svn32498/src/chrome/browser/] Check failed: pid_ > 0. Did not find zygote process

I'm not sure if this is a Superkb bug or a Chromium one.

If you do <code>watch -n 0.01 'ps fax | tac'</code> you will see that the Chromium files are being correctly launched, being Chromium apparently at failure for not being able to recognize the zygote process.

As a workaround, you can use your terminal commands like "gnome-terminal -x chromium-browser" for launching it. You'll get an ugly terminal window in the back while running the browser, though.

The following code triggers the problem.

$ cat test.c
#include <signal.h>
int main() {
 signal(SIGCHLD, SIG_IGN);

 if (fork() == 0) {

$ gcc -o test test.c
$ ./test

Because the Chromium project acknowledged the bug and prepared a patch, this is not a bug in Superkb. Therefore I'm closing the bug as Invalid.
