Chromium browser crash on startup

you can find the clean & official v67 package (stable release 20180701)
https://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debi..._armhf.deb

So to summarize with full instructions to fix a crashing chromium (v68 or 69) :

Code:
wget https://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian-security/20180701T015633Z/pool/updates/main/c/chromium-browser/chromium_67.0.3396.87-1~deb9u1_armhf.deb
sudo dpkg -i chromium_67.0.3396.87-1~deb9u1_armhf.deb
sudo apt-mark hold chromium

The installation of chromium by apt or dpkg will overwrite the /etc/chromium.d/default-flags file and cause the you-tube video to be slow. So backup this file and restore it after the installation.

To enable hardware acceleration, ASUS did some manually changes after chromium installation .

As I recall, during the install, you will be prompted if you want the flags overwritten. I selected "N". Was this not correct? YouTube seem to play ok.

I don't get any prompt during the installation of chromium, here is the console output:

Which version did you install over? V63, v68, or v69?  Are the default-flags file the same in all?

base on this https://tinkerboarding.co.uk/forum/thread-1724.html
I also try again...apt-get upgrade chromium...and duplicate the issue...

So my solution is downgrading the version.

get stable version:
Code:
sudo apt-cache policy chromium
ad below:
Code:
linaro@tinkerboard:~$ sudo apt-cache policy chromium
chromium:
  Installed: 68.0.3440.75-1~deb9u1
  Candidate: 68.0.3440.75-1~deb9u1
  Version table:
 *** 68.0.3440.75-1~deb9u1 500
        500 http://security.debian.org stretch/updates/main armhf Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     63.0.3239.84-1~deb9u1 500
        500 http://http.debian.net/debian stretch/main armhf Packages
     53.0.2785.143-1.1linarostretch1 500
        500 http://repo.linaro.org/ubuntu/linaro-overlay stretch/main armhf Packages

You can find a stable version from stable repo "http://http.debian.net/debian stretch/main" is "63.0.3239.84-1~deb9u1". 
And currently, the latest version from security repo "http://security.debian.org stretch/updates/main" is "68.0.3440.75-1~deb9u1".

Then you can downgrade to "63.0.3239.84-1~deb9u1" by
Code:
sudo apt-get install chromium=63.0.3239.84-1~deb9u1
result:
Code:
linaro@tinkerboard:~$ sudo apt-get install chromium=63.0.3239.84-1~deb9u1

and check the package and version again:

sudo apt-cache policy chromium

Code:
linaro@tinkerboard:~$ sudo apt-cache policy chromium
chromium:
  Installed: 63.0.3239.84-1~deb9u1

  Version table:

     53.0.2785.143-1.1linarostretch1 500
        500 http://repo.linaro.org/ubuntu/linaro-overlay stretch/main armhf Packages

Should be worked again.

I reverted back to:
63.0.3239.84-1~deb9u1 

It works and is stable.
