Google Chrome On Fedora 15

Get Chrome

Installing Google Chrome on Fedora 15 64-bit is relatively simple, once you add the Chrome Repo to the Repos directory.

As root user, change directory to /etc/yum.repos.d.

Use Emacs, Vim, or any other editor and add the following:

[google64]
name=Google - x86_64
baseurl=http://dl.google.com/linux/rpm/stable/x86_64
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub


Save the file as google.repo

This adds the 64-bit Chrome repo.

Next run the following yum command:

yum install google-chrome-stable

When quizzed, press 'y' to answer 'yes'.

Yum install will run to completion.

Click 'Activities' > 'Internet' > Google Chrome

You got Chrome.

If you want 32-bit add the following repo instead:

[google]
name=Google - i386
baseurl=http://dl.google.com/linux/rpm/stable/x86_64
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub

Then run the yum command:

yum install google-chrome-stable

You have Chrome 32-bit installed.
