Someone broke the v8 in the F17+ repo, it is definitely higher than the
one that Chromium wants and it is also miscompiled (at least from a
"what chromium needs" perspective).

However, I suspect that on F17, you're hitting two different bugs:

1) I forgot to increment the libjingle versioned Requires, so you need
to make sure you also do yum update libjingle from my repo.

2) Fedora 17 has a new selinux boolean "deny_ptrace" which is enabled by
default. Chromium (and Chrome) want to ptrace as part of how their
sandboxing works. Unless you run (as root):

   setsebool deny_ptrace=0

Chromium is just going to AVC and segfault.
