Bug Description

I updated chromium-browser a few days ago using the Software Updater and now it only provides the following error when run from command line...

Illegal instruction (core dumped)

When run from GUI, nothing usually happens and sometimes the crash report box opens.

After a short discussion on the #AC100 forum at Freenode, we feel it may be caused because the newest version has had Neon instructions compiled in which are not compatable with the nVidia Tegra 2.
