Hi everyone, I am maintaining the only version of chromium with video
accelertion patches which compiles using llvm-clang instead of GCC.
The decision which compiler the maintainer uses for Chromium is up to
them, he also maintains it across other releases like el7 so it's
quite possible it depends on if the compiler is available across all
releases, also WRT the video acceleration if it requires code that
Fedora can't shop or not.
Both builds are uploaded to my github repo:
So Is this possible to get clang version 6 in fedora 27 and upcoming fedora 28? Also how
about adding video acceleration patch to chromium since Google doesn't seem
interested? Few distributions are already doing it. Thank you.
Clang 6 is already in Fedora 28  and later, it'll be up to the
maintainer whether it's supported in older releases, as you could
imaging maintainer a compiler is no mean feat.
