Google Chrome hook

Post by lightman47 » 2018/01/10 18:25:04

Why is Google Chrome doing this during my updates - does anybody know?

Code: Select all

Redirecting to /bin/systemctl start atd.service
Thank you.

Looks like they've been learning from microsoft who do something similar in their skypeforlinux package rpm postscript.
echo "rpm --import $TMP" | at now + 2 minutes > /dev/null 2>&1
Thanks!

Running systemctl mask atd stops this :-o

So, does your suggestion negate future attempts or does it also "undo" what what was just done?

- edit:

AH - having run that, how do I undo, or is that possible?

Thank you.

Apologies -
the question was actually "how do i undo what has already been done?", not how do I undo the command..

My bad.

`rpm -q --scripts chrome` then read, understand and work out what to do. No easy answer.

From the script:

Code: Select all

#...Also preemptively start atd because for some reason it's
# not always running, which kind of defeats the purpose of having 'at' as a
# required LSB command.
service atd start
echo "sh /etc/cron.daily/google-chrome" | at now + 2 minute > /dev/null 2>&1
It's just making sure that google-chrome can actually check for updates.
