Brave crashing on startup

Brave recently stopped will show the Brave splash screen and disappear and nothing. Anyone got a fix?

I can confirm that brave-browser v1.60.x segfaults on the L5, and I informed the PureOS team on Matrix.

Until this is resolved:

$ sudo apt-cache madison brave-browser

to get the available versions on the system, and revert to the previous minor release:

$ sudo apt install brave-browser=1.59.124

Brave launched successfully after downgrading the package.


Thanks! It would be good to let the Brave team know as well. They are the ones that specifically made Brave available to mobile Linux, and so I think they would care about fixing the issue.
