Update: 12 November 2011
It seems that Google has restored the repository. You can still follow the instructions below however, it is recommended to just navigate to the chrome site and install from there.
Check out my new post Install Google Chrome in Fedora 16 (Verne)
Update: 28 September 2011
Google repository does not work anymore because Google has discontinued Google Pack. You can visit the main site for further information.
To install Chrome on Fedora, you just need to navigate to Chrome website and click install. The procedure is similar to installing Chrome in Windows.
Please do not follow the instructions below!
While you could download the rpm file from Chrome website and install Chrome, a better method is to download Chrome from Google repository so that you could receive any new updates.
Configure Google Repository
Create a file called google.repo with 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
You can also download a copy from here. Place the file under /etc/yum.repos.d
Installing Google Chrome
Run yum install using the command:
$sudo yum install google-chrome-stable
If you would like to install the beta or unstable version of Chrome use the following command:
$sudo yum install google-chrome-beta $sudo yum install google-chrome-unstable
You could also write a script file to automate the installation process. This script download the repository file that I’ve prepared and move it to the yum repository folder. You need to hash (#) out those version that you DO NOT want to install. You could only install one version of Chrome.
#! /bin/bash #Add repo file from Google wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/30876345/repo/google.repo mv google.repo /etc/yum.repos.d #Install Google Chrome yum install -y google-chrome-stable #yum install -y google-chrome-beta #yum install -y google-chrome-unstable
You could download a copy of the script here. Note: remember to give execution permission to the script using the command $sudo chmod +x <script_name>. To run the script use the command:
