yum install fails due to google-chrome


Hi,

For whatever reason, I do not have google chrome on fedora 19 on my system. But I am receiving this error while I want to install packages using yum install:

Quote:
Loaded plugins: langpacks, refresh-packagekit
google-chrome | 1.5 kB 00:00
http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rp...ta/repomd.xml: [Errno -1] Error importing repomd.xml for google-chrome: Damaged repomd.xml file
Trying other mirror.
Error: failure: repodata/repomd.xml from google-chrome: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rp...ta/repomd.xml: [Errno -1] Error importing repomd.xml for google-chrome: Damaged repomd.xml file
what shall I do to correct this?

In /etc/yum.repos.d/ create following file:

Fox x86:
Code:
# vi /etc/yum.repos.d/google-chrome.repo
[google-chrome]
name=google-chrome
baseurl=http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/i386/
gpgkey=https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
For x86_64:
Code:
# vi /etc/yum.repos.d/google-chrome.repo
[google-chrome]
name=google-chrome
baseurl=http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/x86_64/
gpgkey=https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
Then, install Google-Chrome by issuing command:
Code:
# yum install google-chrome-stable
