unable to get chromium browser installed in rhel5.4
My office pc is rhel5.4 (tikanga) and they wont allow me to install latest fedora or some other latest software in my office pc. And the amount of support for linux desktop is much less than compared to windows laptop in my office. So i cant raise a service request ticket with rhel, as my company wont do that for me, as they don't consider personal desktop as much importance and they would advice to use windows laptop. So i searched on how to get chromium up and running on rhel5.4, but i found that it is either very difficult or impossible. I found that the pre requiste software like gcc version etc are not provided through yum in rhel repsoitories. What it is provided is one minor version old. lot of the required software are old by a minor version number. So the build process gclient throws a error and comes out. When investigated it was found to be b'cos of the old lib files in rhel and no update is provided. i found that some guy in japan is providing pre build binaries for centos 5. i tried that, but it wont install complaining that my distro is not centos 5 (of course!). So has anyone been successful in installing chromium in rhel 5.4 . if so can you post the steps on how to accomplish them. I am not necessarily incline on chromium. If i can get google chrome instead of chromium , that would be still better. If this cant be done, let me know. That will help me terminate the hopes of getting chromium on the desktop , thus stopping me from banging my head against the impossible.
