Home Learn Linux Linux Answers Internet Installation problem in fedora13
  • In my system (fedora 13 x86_64) it gave a dependency failure for lsb. I just installed lsb using yum.

    yum install lsb

    Then installed the

    google-chrome-stable_current_x86_64.rpm .

    Google chrome is installed and is appearing in Application->Internet->Google Chrome. I could able to browse also.

    I would suggest you to download the rpm and install it

    rpm -i google-chrome-stable_current_x86_64.rpm

    and look for any errors.
    The installation can be verified with the following command
    rpm -q google-chrome-stable

  • You can check the rpm log file(s) which are usually located at /usr/local/rpm/logs to see what errors have occurred during the attempted installation.

    Once you find the error in the log and share it with us we can provide further guidance.

  • I run fedora 13, but in 32 bit. When I first installed chrome a few months ago, I checked out the Google Chrome Help Forum and saw that those who were trying to install the 64 bit version had to install extra 32 libs/apps in order to have a running Chrome. I tried finding those threads/posts but failed. So, if you getting dependency errors, I'd check for missing 32 libs also. Unfortunately, I don't see that rpm log that mfillpot referred to, it might have been retired in the recent fedora release. I was sort of hoping it was still there, it would be very useful. I usually check /var/log/messages when things go wrong, that is, if rpm -iv doesn't show the info you need. Adding a "v" (small v) to the -i gives you a more verbose output from rpm.
