    1. This is great. I have Fedora 14 fresh installation and the usual easy method of just going to a site and clicking install failed miserably, hangs and fails at missing dependencies. This little tutorial is easy enough to follow and I am now watching the console install the dependencies and Chrome.. if all goes well I should be browsing in my favourite software soon!

      Thanks a bunch.

      You could try using –skip-broken to work around the problem
      You could try running: package-cleanup –problems
      package-cleanup –dupes
      rpm -Va –nofiles –nodigest
      The program package-cleanup is found in the yum-utils package.

      Work around tried : Installed the rpm for google-chrome 64-bit
      as
      rpm -ivh –nodeps google-chrome-stable_current_x86_64.rpm

      Google-chrome Installed but dependencies are not resolved.

      Please give me suggestions, I am in a huge need to use it.

      With Regards,

    9. I commend you for your patience with dealing with people who are asking very green questions. Linux is lucky to have some people left who are willing and competent in helping people overcome the learning curve.

      As a note, the version of chrome I downloaded today from http://www.google.com/chrome did not install the repo file. After looking into why, it appears google is now adding the repository after running a cron job (cron.daily). The really weird thing is that as installed, the cron job will not run, as the /etc/default/google-chrome file has repo_add_once set to false. So I’m puzzled….

      Also, my main complaint against the cron file is that it wants to call the repository google-chrome, which no longer makes sense since they’ve shoved the gadgets, desktop, and performance tools in there as well.

      Anyway, I ended up deleting the cron file and adding the repo file … just like your webpage had. Thanks for blogging this, and keep up your excellent work in linux ambassadorship!

    10. Hey, thank you for this guide.
      I just installed a fresh fedora 15, and when i try using chrome at the university – through a proxy – there comes the following error:

      When running Google Chrome under a supported desktop environment, the system proxy settings will be used. However, either your system is not supported or there was a problem while launching your system configuration.

      But you can still configure via the command line. Please see man google-chrome for more information on flags and environment variables.

      Does someone have an idea how to fix it?

    11. Instead of having two version this will work for both 32 bit (i386) and 64 bit (x86_64)

      [Google]
      name=Google
      baseurl=http://dl.google.com/linux/rpm/stable/$basearch
      gpgcheck=1
      gpgkey=https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub

      • Hi Vin,

        Nice one! :)

        This is an effective way, but I will leave instructions for a separate 32-bit and 64-bit options, because, someone may want to install 32-bit version on 64-bit Fedora because of Flash.

      • Hi George,

        This guide uses Google Chrome official repos and example I use currently on this Fedora 15 machine Google Chrome Beta 13.0.782.24. And even Google Chrome Stable should be 12.x.xxx.xx.

        Which operating system (and version) you are using?

        Try update your chrome with command:

        
        yum update google-chrome-stable
        ## OR ##
        yum update google-chrome-beta
        ## OR ##
        yum update google-chrome-unstable
