Dammit not I forgot to test the older package:

Code: Select all

cd /tmp
curl -sSfLO https://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian/pool/main/c/chromium-browser/chromium-browser_92.0.4515.98-rpt1_armhf.deb
curl -sSfLO https://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian/pool/main/c/chromium-browser/chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra_92.0.4515.98-rpt1_armhf.deb
apt install ./chromium-{browser,codecs-ffmpeg-extra}_92.0.4515.98-rpt1_armhf.deb
rm chromium-*

Thanks for raising this up to that team.

Is there a suggested dietpi release that I can downgrade to in the meantime?

DietPi don't have a real release that could be installed. We have the master branch that is the current version. Therefore you can't downgrade DietPi. In addition, there is no relation between DietPi release and software package. DietPi is installing apt packages from global source like Debian or Raspbian. Means you will get same version of chromium on all DietPi version.
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team

It seems that Chromium did never work on ARMv6 Bullseye models, at least not with the last two package releases. Earlier releases as well conflict with the new FFmpeg and librasperrypi0, which implied a breaking change. Only the newest Chromium package works with the newest libraspberrypi0 package.

So I'm afraid there is no easy solution until the RPi devs fixed the Chromium package. With the FFmpeg packages this happened quite quickly.

A workaround would be to use Debian's Chromium package in the meantime:

Code: Select all

apt purge --autoremove chromium-browser
apt install chromium
It does not have hardware acceleration support on RPi, but as long as you do not rely on fluent video playback, it should be fine.
