    5. Thank you SO much! This worked beautifully. Follow the directions exactly as posted (copy paste each line individually in the terminal after signing in as administrator by typing “su” and then typing in your login password, and you’ll have Chromium.

    6. Thank you for this. I wonder, though – is there a way to get the latest version of Chromium on Fedora? This is still only v21 and we have v24 Chromium out there.

      • Hi Ante,

        Unfortunately I can’t find any Chromium v24 builds for Fedora, but you can of course build Chromium v24.

    8. I’m using CentOS 6.4 (Final) and I’m getting this error:


      Error: Package: google-chrome-stable-28.0.1500.52-207119.x86_64 (google-chrome)
      Requires: libstdc++.so.6(GLIBCXX_3.4.15)(64bit)
      You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
      You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

      Is there any workaround for this??? Please Help Me!!!
