I am suddenly unable to access any Google related sites, or signing in, with Chromium. I always get a page:

Code:
SSL connection error

ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR

Unable to make a secure connection to the server. This may be a problem with the server, or it may be requiring a client authentication certificate that you don't have.


I can access any other SSL sites just fine. I can also access Google as expected using a different browser. Midori, in my case. I've tried rebuilding openssl, since I noticed it upgraded to 1.0.2f-r1 one day, and then downgraded to 1.0.2f the next day. I also tried rebuilding chromium. I even created a new user with an empty home directory and have the same problem, just to eliminate any cached data being the issue. I can access Google with Chrome on my Windows laptop. And I have found no similar issues in the forums or in bugs.

I'm kind of stuck as to what else to try or what's going on here. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Perhaps an important detail is that I am still running chromium-43, the last place widevine works so I can continue to watch Netflix. But from the ebuilds, it appears chromium uses a built-in ssl implementation.

Which version of dev-libs/nss do you have installed?

I had this, or a very similar issue with QupZilla using QtWebEngine, which is sort of like using Chromium, but not, and while I found some old Chromium issues like this, they were quite old indeed and/or somehow different.

The issue was gone after I went from nss-3.21-r2 down to nss-3.20.1 which probably doesn't still explain the failure, since a QtWebEngine developer mentioned they were not having issues with nss-3.21-r2...

I haven't looked into it more than that, but I figured it's worth a shot, and interesting to see if it works for you, too.

Yes, downgrading to nss-3.20.1did the trick. Thank you so much.

Time to push getting widevine working in newer releases: bug547630 - www-client/chromium-44.0.2376.0 Fails to Compile with +widevine

I had exactly the same issue just now.

What I resolve the problem is to make a recent update to chrome.

notice that you need to do a emerge --sync immediately before emerge google-chrome as ebuild for google-chrome updates very quickly.
