When I try to start discord on linux-hardened I get the following error:

[3205:0228/] The SUID sandbox helper binary was found, but is not configured correctly. Rather than run without sandboxing I'm aborting now. You need to make sure that /opt/discord/chrome-sandbox is owned by root and has mode 4755.
[1] 3205 trace trap (core dumped) discord

This was already the case before the last discord package upgrade.

It works fine on the normal linux kernel.
This task depends upon

The issue can be fixed by running this command:

`chmod u+s /opt/discord/chrome-sandbox`

This is the same bug as  FS#62469  except that discord, being a proprietary binary, contains its own vendored electron.

The solution is also the same: imitate the electron package by providing a setuid sandbox.

See for more details. electron should NOT rely on the status of the kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone sysctl knob, and then break on systems where it is disabled.
