Welcome to the CentOS fora. Please see the recommended reading for new users linked in my signature.

Always best to use a package from a repo if available.

Code: Select all

# cat /etc/yum.repos.d/google-chrome.repo
name=google-chrome $basearch
# yum --disablerepo \* --enablerepo google-chrome list available
Loaded plugins: changelog, fastestmirror, priorities, refresh-packagekit
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
google-chrome                                            |  951 B     00:00     
google-chrome/primary                                    | 1.4 kB     00:00     
google-chrome                                                               3/3
Available Packages
google-chrome-beta.x86_64              17.0.963.46-119351          google-chrome
google-chrome-stable.x86_64            17.0.963.46-119351          google-chrome
google-chrome-unstable.x86_64          18.0.1025.7-120697          google-chrome


Install Google Chrome with YUM on Fedora 16/15, CentOS/Red Hat (RHEL) 6.2

Edit: Just added an entry to the Repositories page, and created Google Yum Repository Examples.
