    1. Thanks! It is very simple. It helped me and worked like a charm…. :)

    2. I have used vim to create a .repo file, but how can I save the file? Thank you… Im seriously loving fedora for some reason… :D

      • You can save file with changing Vim editor to command mode, pressing Esc key and then write :x and press Return key.

    3. Thank you. I am currently installing the file.

      Thank you very much

    4. better use :wq for saving and quitting the file after pressing esc.

    5. Hi, am trying hard to get chrome on my fedora 13 but all I get after following the instructions is this on my terminal.

      • Hi nassif,

        Actually you are installing Chromium browser using very very old Fedora 9 repo. So you are not followed this guide at all…

        To install Google Chrome, please follow this guide or if you want install Chromium then follow Chromium install guide.

    6. Thanks a lot, JR. I thought I had fedora 13 because the download said 13. Could you please tell me how I could upgrade to fedora 13 and please bare with me am new to linux.

      • I think you have Fedora 13, but you have added old and wrong Fedora 9 repository on you system…could you post output of following commands:

        uname -a


        lsb_release -a


        yum repolist


        ls -la /etc/yum.repos.d/
    7. Here is what I got, hope I did it right.

      [[email protected] ~]$ lsb_release -a
      bash: lsb_release: command not found
      [[email protected] ~]$ yum repolist

    8. Hi nassif,

      First thing it looks like you have actually installed Fedora 9, or at least your kernel is Fedora 9 kernel.

      And secondly, your Chromium repository is broken. You should remove Chromium repo file so you get your yum working again.

      I recommend to download Fedora 13 Linux from here and install it. Then try to install Google Chrome again using this guide.

    9. HI,

      I am currently using RHEL 5 and wanted to install google chrome…

      m getting following error messages :

      [[email protected] yum.repos.d]# yum install google-chrome-stable

    10. Hi, I prefer too the shell to install this things.., you can see the details about whats happening in your system!! Thank, great job

    11. Shame that Developers of Google Chromium do not take care about one of the most stable, commercial and business oriented distribution of Linux: Red-Hat.
      Let Me just Say that for Example OPERA installs just perfect on Red-Hat.

      Why to Use Chromium at all ?

    12. Perfect. Straight to the point and simple to follow!

    13. thanks so much — this has been a great help

    14. Dear All
      I am using fedora 14 64 bit, I was facing the problem of the following error

      lsb >= 3.2 is needed by google-chrome-stable-8.0.552.237-70801.x86_64

      I resolve the problem as said above & now I am happy,
      Resolving the problem I take the following steps

      Enable Google YUM repository
      Add following to /etc/yum.repos.d/google.repo file:

      For 64 bit

      name=Google – x86_64

      Install Google Chrome with YUM (as root user)
      Install Google Chrome Stable Version

      Command for the installation
      (yum install google-chrome-stable)

      this procedure fix the problem for me
