I'm on Slackware 13.1, used slackbuild's sbopkg to update from Chrome 5 to Chrome 6.0.472.62. When I try to run Chrome, it starts but immediately dies. Here's the error message that comes up:

When I remove the Chrome 6 package and install the old Chrome 5 version, it works fine. How do I fix this?

I found out what the problem was, it was the old Chrome ~/.config/google-chrome/Default folder. I deleted it, installed Chrome 6 again and now everything is working fine.
