Vivaldi constantly writing to Journal (Log)
Using Solus 3
Vivaldi 1.12.955.38 (Stable channel) (64-bit)
I am trying out vivaldi browser but have found it constantly writes to the journal (log)
Here is a paste of some of the output. As you can see it is quite ridiculous.
Oct 26 09:27:40 solus kernel: audit: type=1326 audit(1508974060.781:80): auid=4294967295 uid=1000 gid=1000 ses=4294967295 pid=1422 comm="vivaldi-bin" exe="/usr/share/vivaldi-stable/vivaldi-bin" sig=0 arch=c000003e syscall=273 compat=0 ip=0x7fecff595777 code=0x50000
Tried to include many lines of printout but got message it was flagged as spam. WTF
Hope someone can tell me why this happens and how to stop it.

Today Solus updated vivaldi stable to the latest version.
The problem still remains. Constant journal entries.
Have reported bug as you suggested.

Looks like a kernel bug.
Vivaldi updated to 1.12.955.48 (Stable channel) (64-bit)
Kernel: Linux solus 4.13.11-31.current
Browser and kernel just updated and problem still exists.
This makes the browser unusable.
Journal is filled with entries.
@michaeltsmith Intrigued by your complaint, i just searched my journal for "vivaldi". It found... ONE hit only:
Friday, 3 November 2017 13:03:42 AEDT org.kde.kwalletd5 Application ' "Vivaldi" ' using kwallet without parent window!
Hence, whatever is going on with your system, might possibly be unique to your distro, or maybe even your own unique installation. I point that out not to criticise or dismiss your complaint, but only instead to imply that given it seems not to be a global problem of Vivaldi's in all Linux distros, it might be rather tricky for the Devs to resolve it for you.
Btw my kernel currently is 4.13.10-1.
The same problem is with Chromiums on Mageia, too. And it is a chromium code issue.
And: No, the devs will not resolve this.
Wait until your kernel gets an .14 update which fixes excessive seccomp logging.
