chromium - promotes non-free NVIDIA driver via (embedded copy of) libxnvctrl
Closed, InvalidPublic


Chromium contains multiple copies of libxnvctrl, which sole purpose is to use non-free NVIDIA driver.

Fix is to rebuild qtwebengine-opensource-src without libxnvctrl linkage.

This issue is bogus - even if package is reintroduced into PureOS: libxnvctrl does _not_ need nor promote non-free software (see T64).
