How to install stable Google Chrome browser in Fedora17/CentOS 6

The easier way to do it to create a new file google.repo and copy it with proper permissions into /etc/yum.repos.d/

  • open you favourite text editor
  • paste the bellow codes into the file
  • save it as google.repo

32-bit version use this code

[google-chrome]
name=google-chrome - 32-bit
baseurl=http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/i386
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub

64-bit version use this code

[google-chrome]
name=google-chrome - 64-bit
baseurl=http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/x86_64
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub

You can both have in one file if you wish, once you have it and saved the file like google.repo go to terminal and copy to /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory

# in my case I saved the file on Desktop,I will move it from Desktop into the proper location
su
cd /Desktop
mv google.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/

Now when you have it in proper location you can run yum and download and install the latest version of Chrome browser on your system

yum install google-chrome-stable

All done 🙂
