Installed on Debian Mint. In the terminal I get this error…
FATAL:zygote_host_impl_linux.cc(124)] No usable sandbox! Update your kernel or see https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src/+/master/docs/linux_suid_sandbox_development.md for more information on developing with the SUID sandbox. If you want to live dangerously and need an immediate workaround, you can try using --no-sandbox.
Does this mean I have to modify the system kernel to get your browser to work? Seems a bit much to me.
@Mattches thanks for your reply.
On that link I can see the option to make a temporary change using
echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_userns_clone
I’m slightly concerned about what this change in my system implies. I have never come across this before.
So very breifly, Sandboxing keeps programs running in a contained environment so that they can be tinkered with without harming or having unintended consequences for your system. Namespaces are used in Linux systems to isolate different system resource aspects. Enabling this on your machine essentially allows Brave to be run in a sandbox (inside your user namespace).
We’ve had this issue reported several times. You can see the official issue/fix on github here
If you’d like to read more about sandboxing and Namespaces in Linux, here’s a couple links you may find useful:
Hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any further questions or issues.
