You need to work through a chroot, install an Ubuntu VM on the chromebook and then install a Linux viewer.

im currently on the road so I don't have time to write out a step by step guide, you'll need to google how to use crouton on a chromebook

gotta put it in developer mode, mess around with a command line a lot, then use the ubuntu Linux vm to install and play SL

its gonna perform terribly just as a warning

okay thanks a lot that helps out a lot so far other  than what i just got thanks again for your help 🙂

let's hope your chrome book has enough physical ram and it has a good video card in it.

if your chromebook runs Android apps you can install Lumiya. Otherwise your stuck working with Linux apps as mentioned. But the video card in most chromebooks (and the amount of RAM) are going to make it all but unusable for SL at anything but the lowest graphics settings. And then still painful

A Chromebook is not a laptop, no matter which company builds it nor what their user base might try and state. It is a mock Android Tablet, designed truthfully for little more than use as a basic word processor and web surfing device.

There really is a reason why they are far cheaper than "normal" laptop machines.

I had an acer cb3, celeron n2840, 2gb of ddr3, mediocre at best. However its running full fledged linux, ChromeOS is built off of Gentoo Linux. Its designed as a web browsing machine, watch youtube and browse facebook or whatever. But in the end its a haswell mobile celeron and 2gb of ram on linux, its decently capable if you know how to use it. Its not designed for people who know what theyre doing with the hardware but the hardware is there. I used to run a large variety of stuff on an Ubuntu 12.04 chroot ranging from playing Counterstrike: Source via steam on ubuntu, to basic photo editing with Gimp.

It will play secondlife with firestorm. Its just going to perform awfully because youre working through a VM layer on a machine thats best suited for older games and mainly for its original purpose, web browsing at best.

If you made an ubuntu chroot and installed firestorm on it, and it didnt run, its probably just not going to. I said it was possible, but not that it would work well at all. Its plain and simple not up to the task.

Cykar, I know very well what I am talking about - thank you very much.

You make a habit of pretending "loads the program" means "useful" or "works" - loading and actually being properly usable are not the same thing - at all.

You like to tinker - lovely. You also took the "system requirements" page - which has not been updated in a long time - at face value. Not so lovely. Getting a program to load does not mean it is usable - that's reality.

Just as my description of any Chromebook is reality.

You don't have to like it nor do you have to agree - both are quite irrelevant. Your opinion doesn't change anything.

You are "Flydragon" - not "Cykar"

I did not respond to you a moment ago.

Now I am.

Flydragon2642,   your best short-term bet - for a non-technical solution - might be to try the Lumiya app, if you can run Android apps on your Chromebook.  The best long-term solution is to either get your desktop fixed, or get a laptop or other desktop with a Windows operating system and sufficient RAM and video card capabilities.

oh  so very sorry mhy bad 😞

No worries - I likely came across as a bit sharper than intended when making the correction.

There are some types that just ... rub me the wrong way.

But yeah, your options are very limited and some will require a fair bit of technical knowledge or at the least a competent tutorial. As it stands, you're not going to be able to use a "normal" Second Life client on that machine - not at what most would truly call "acceptable". Bearable? Perhaps ....

As has been suggested, if you can use the Google Play Store on that machine, you could use Lumiya.
