Since I updated my 13.2 installation this morning Chromium will not

I notice the kernel was updated with this update. Any ideas on how
to get Chromium back?

Thanks,

Oh, and a forced re-install of chrome does not fix it either.
I'm using chrome-stable.

Did find some old-ish google hits:
https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=480017
And getting updated with opensuse users.

Also this page has a work around:

Start chrome as:
/usr/bin/google-chrome-stable %U --disable-namespace-sandbox

and start chromium as:
chromium --disable-namespace-sandbox

This doesn't seem like a permanent (or wise) solution, but it did
work for me.

I can confirm the same problem after the latest kernel update and that
the (ill-advised) workaround does work.
