Install Chromium in Backtrack 5

I installed BackTrack 5 recently. I follow the instruction from http://koko-newbie.blogspot.com/2011/09/install-google-chrome-in-backtrack-5_03.html

Here's how I install the Chromium browser into my Backtrack:
  1. apt-get install chromium-browser
  2. cd /usr/lib/chromium-browser
  3. hexedit chromium-browser

  • [Tab] to mode string
  • [ctrl-s], type geteuid
  • Replace geteuid as getppid
  • [ctrl-x] to save-and exit.

The reason to modify the geteuid with hexedit is to bypass the restriction on running Google Chrome browser as root.
