Question failed dependencies in google chrome installation on fedora 9


Hello there,
I want to install google chrome in my fedora 9. Following the instructions from : http://www.kartook.com/2010/03/linux...ra-and-centos/
I added following to /etc/yum.repos.d/google.repo file:
Code:
[google]
name=Google – i386
baseurl=http://dl.google.com/linux/rpm/stable/i386
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub
Then:
Code:
[root@localhost ~]# yum install google-chrome-beta
The problem is:
Code:
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
Resolving Dependencies
--> Running transaction check
---> Package google-chrome-beta.i386 0:5.0.375.70-48679 set to be updated
--> Processing Dependency: lsb >= 3.2 for package: google-chrome-beta
--> Processing Dependency: libnss3.so(NSS_3.12.3) for package: google-chrome-beta

Any ideas ?? Thanks.

Also this consider please:
Code:
[root@localhost ~]# yum install lsb
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
Package redhat-lsb-3.1-19.fc8.i386 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do
[root@localhost ~]# yum install libnss3.so
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
Package nss-3.12.2.0-3.fc9.i386 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do

Fedora 9 reached the end of life status one years ago in two weeks. Dependencies are no longer updated, so they are too old for the binary version of Google Chrome. You might try to compile chromium yourself if you really want ti, but it might fail for the same reason, Fedora 9 is no longer supported.

Forget to compile it yourself if you are new, it is really hard to do.

"Fedora 9 reached the end of life status one years ago in two weeks "

mean that Fedora 9 is dead, it is not supported by Chrome. You can't install chrome on Windows 98, it is the same thing. It is just too old. Fedora 13 is out now, Fedora 9 is two years old. New release of fedora are made every 6 months, user are supposed to upgrade every time. After 18 month, all support for the old version stop, and recent version of applications stop working shortly after. Your version is dead, you have to upgrade.

Now I got the point. No doubt I a newbie but I have experience of compiling a few other softwares e.g. NS-2. And therefore, I think I should give it a try. Anyhow my next confusions are:

1. If I were using Windows 98 and I wanted to upgrade to Windows Xp, I would format C: and install Windows Xp. Thus loosing all my running applications. So Will this be the case if I upgrade to fedora 13? Will I have to lose my existing applications ?

2. Are there any potential problems/issues that I may face if I upgrade to fedora 13?

That's not a Linux term. It just means that a piece of software (in this case Fedora 9) isn't supported by its creators any more, and doesn't get any updates.

No, you don't Windows XP will create a folder called C:/Windows2 on your drive and will install itself on it, it will then perform FAT32->NTFS soft+live upgrade. But it is not the point here.

Doing Fedora 9 -> 13 is quite risky, nobody tested it. It might just work, but might not. the best way in your case is migrating /home and /var directory to an independent partition and then installing F13 by formatting your F9 install. In the setup process, select your /home and /var partition manually instead of taking the automated process. be sure not to format them.

You might also want to backup your /etc directory if you played in it.

Once on F13, just be sure to stay up to date. When F14 will be released, just enter the command to perform the software upgrade. You don't have to reinstall, it will be automated and when you will reboot, you will be in Fedora 14 instead of 13.

it will not work
there have been FAR too many changes for this to work
just do a FULL and clean install using the fedora 13 dvd
and LET the dvd reformat EVERYTHING

I would NOT use fedora it is a "testing" and R&D operating system
not everything will work correctly "out of the box"

i would install Ubuntu or Mint
then in about a year or so install fedora , or debain,or suse ,

I began with Fedora and liked it better than Ubuntu.

I wouldn't recommend against it for beginners.

i started with fedora4 BUT was running MiGW and CwgWin for a few years
and WANTED to learn

mq15 fedora 9 is AND has been DEAD - you missed doing some reading and learning -

if you want to use fedora just KEEP IN MIND that
1) it changes VERY fast
2) new versions are released about EVERY 6 months
3) there is ONLY 13 months of support for a version
4) being a R & D distro not everything will work correctly "out of the box"
5) you need to stay UP TO DATE !!!
6) reinstall a new version about every 6 months
