google chrome and centos 5.5


I've been using Google Chrome for several months on my Debian machine and have been impressed with it. I would like to install a version of it on my Centos 5.5 machine, in addition to, if possible my Slackware computers. Can someone suggest where I might get an installable version for those distributions?

Thank you.

I can't speak to the CentOS part, but for Slackware here you go:

I want to thank you for your information. I'll be able to download the browser tonight for my most recent Slackware machine. Is there any place I can get similar software for Slackware12, 12.1, or 12.2 releases?

thank you.

Just specify the version of slackware you are using when you do your search.

Google chrome browser : Two binary packages are available.

1) An rpm : I checked it with CentOS 5 when your question
appeared a couple of hours ago : No luck.
The OS is too old. Probably the same with Slackware 12.x

2) Slackware 13, 13.1 :
The Debian package is used. Works perfect.
(The 'Slackbuild' will rebuild the package.)

I had looked for an RPM when Crome came out and had no luck. A few weeks ago I was at a Google seminar in New York, and spoke to one of the Google Apps managers who mentioned that Redhat is used for their internal development, so I thought I'd try once more. I guess they haven't decided to support the platform commercially.

Thanks again.

Same problem with CentOS 5.5 - missing dependency on the redhat-lsb RPM. Needs version 3.2 and CentOS 5.5 only ships with 3.1-12. Too bad.

Post # 8, @ arashi256 : As you can read in post # 6 :

CentOS 5.5 is too old for 'Google Chrome'.
'redhat-lsb' is not the main issue.
Other important system library files are not present,
and cannot be installed / changed.
