Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1310254
chromium-browser.sh has verbose flag on - fills up .xsession-errors file and user quota
Last modified: 2017-12-06 05:53:52 EST
Description of problem:
Line 47 of /opt/chromium-browser/chromium-browswer.sh specifies the --v=2 flag which apparently is verbose logging (undocumented feature?). The verbose logging goes to ~/.xsession-errors and files up the user's quota.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start chromium-browser in Gnome
2. watch ~/.xession-errors
Very large ~/.xsession-errors file
Only a few lines in ~/.xsession-errors relating to chromium-browser running.
Yes, there is a mistake in the SPEC file. It will be fixed with the next release.
