Readme

$OpenBSD: README,v 1.3 2020/06/28 20:08:42 solene Exp $

+-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Running ${PKGSTEM} on OpenBSD
+-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chromium uses several mitigations on OpenBSD:

- each category of process uses pledge(2) to limit system call access
- each category of process uses unveil(2) to limit filesystem access.

Occasionally, some extensions may violate some pledge(2) specifications.
This will appear in syslog's /var/log/messages as

    chromium[]: pledge "", syscall .

along with the more obvious "Oops" in chromium tabs.

Disabling pledge() or unveil() is not recommended!

THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS FOR DEBUG PURPOSES ONLY

- global pledge knob: invoke chromium with --no-sandbox
- specific pledge for specific processes:
${SYSCONFDIR}/chromium/pledge.*

- global unveil knob: invoke chromium with --disable-unveil
- specific unveil for specific processes:
${SYSCONFDIR}/chromium/unveil.*

Specific situations
-------------------
If you need to access files from alternative locations (for example
opening files in /var/www/htdocs directly in chromium), add the paths
to ${SYSCONFDIR}/chromium/unveil.main and merge with changes in files in
${PREFIX}/share/examples/chromium/ at update time.

webgl and 3d and acceleration support:
- some DRM supported cards are marked as unsupported by chromium
Using --ignore-gpu-blacklist may allow you to test

Interoperability with base window managers:
- some window managers do not have compositing support; for instance, fvwm.
In order to have decent graphic rendering, they should be supplemented by
a compositing manager. For instance, xcompmgr in base.
