Google chrome on Fedora 11 Leonidas.

Earlier I had posted a article on installing chromium on Linux. Chromium is the open source version of the browser which is used by Google to develop its famous browser Chrome. Now chrome rpm is available from google site to install on F11. Here\’s how to do it. First we will add a repo for google. As root user do the following:

cat <<EOF >/etc/yum.repos.d/google.repo

[google]
name=Google – i386
baseurl=http://dl.google.com/linux/rpm/stable/i386
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1

Now you can install chrome with yum as you do with all other softwares. Just enter the command

sudo yum install google-chrome-unstable

Chrome – Chromium on Linux (repo)

Fedora people put up a repo for the chrome web browser and it is quite frequently updated. All you need to do to install the browser is following:

sudo vi /etc/yum.repos.d/chrome.repo

and add the following lines

name=Chromium Test Packages
baseurl=http://spot.fedorapeople.org/chromium/F$releasever/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0

Once this is done, you can install the browser with yum as follows:

sudo yum install chromium
