How I got my web UI tests to run under Amazon Linux 2023 in CodeBuild

So it seems this distribution doesn't seem to have either Chromium or Chrome easily available so I solved this with the following snippet in my buildspec.yml file.

      - wget -q
      - sudo yum install -y ./google-chrome-stable_current_x86_64.rpm
      - sudo ln -s /usr/bin/google-chrome-stable /usr/bin/chromium

Basically it downloads Chrome from Google and then symlinks the chromium to it. After this I can run both Pupeteer and Cypress tests from it.
