    1. This page of yum installing information is the greatest written instruction that I have seen on the net so far! I want to say thank you to the person who took the time to write this for those of us who are somewhat new to Linux (as far as installing with yum is concerned), and I want to say that I would be happy to help you in any way that I could in future postings if possible…
      thank you,
      Artie Caton

      • Hi sudheerkrishna,

        This is probably due to something else, than the chromium repo.

        Please post output of following commands:

        
        yum repolist
        

        And

        
        ls -la /etc/yum.repos.d/
        

        And

        
        cat /etc/yum.repos.d/*.repo

      Try playing with yum search and yum install in terminal, or do the same in the package manager (KPackageKit in KDE or gnome-packagekit in GNOME).
