Google Chrome for Linux [Fedora 8]


I am trying to install Google Chrome for Linux
I am getting following error message while installing the rpm

Quote:
sudo rpm -i google-chrome-beta_current_i386.rpm
warning: google-chrome-beta_current_i386.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 7fac5991
error: Failed dependencies:
lsb >= 3.2 is needed by google-chrome-beta-4.0.249.30-33928.i386
libnss3.so(NSS_3.12.3) is needed by google-chrome-beta-4.0.249.30-33928.i386
I even tried "--nodeps" option but still no help

Is that a bug in the rpm itself or am I doing something wrong.


any help on this is much appreciated

Did you actually *read* those messages? Clearly it's a dependency not an error. you need to upgrade / install those packages. Note that for such an old distro, they may well not be available.

Well you really aren't meant to be using FC8 any more, in the grand scheme of Fedora, it's really old now.

fedora 8 hit it's End Of Life a year ago

fedora is a FAST development distro , with a new version EVERY 6 MONTHS
so every 6 months you NEED TO REINSTALL fedora

chrome will run on fedora 12 -- the current version .

Maybe age isn't the issue?

I tried to install this out of curiosity and got stumped too. CentOS isn't exactly a banner OS for a desktop machine, granted.

Centos/RHEL often do not update packages but backpatch the older version. This is done to maximize stability. It is tough to tell which way they will jump on this one. As lsb 4 is now out they may jump to it, they may go to 3.2, or they may just sit at 3.1.

From reading the error message I guess you should install the key.

I would assume you should be able to download the key file from the same place as the rpm.

Then, from reading the rpm man page it seems you can install the key using "rpm --import keyfile.asc".

After that I guess you should be able to install the rpm.

And using this instruction http://macles.blogspot.com/2009/05/g...for-linux.html I've managed to run chrome, but it's not very stable here ( freezing all the time).
