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.

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.

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
