Installation of Chromium browser can be done in both ways – either manually or using the YUM updater. These packages have been specially built for Fedora 11 and are available for both 32 bit and 64 bit systems.
Install Using Packages (RPMs)
Download and install them by either double clicking the RPMs or by using the
rpm -ivh <package-name> command. If you are looking for source RPMs, these can also be found at the link above.
Install Using YUM
One advantage of installing Chromium via YUM is that you will get updates to Chromium automatically. Also there won’t be any dependency problem while installing. All you need to do is just type the content given below into filenamed chromium.repo .
[chromium] name=Chromium Test Packages baseurl=http://spot.fedorapeople.org/chromium/F$releasever/ enabled=1 gpgcheck=0
and save it to your /etc/yum.repos.d directory. Once done, then you can install Chromium by using the command: yum -y install chromium
Special note for 64bit version users
There have been many issues with the 64 bit version of the Chrome Browser.
So in order to fix the issue all you need to do is just install this missing package. To do so, you need to type the following command in a terminal:
sudo yum -y install nss-mdns
After installation, you must restart your Google Chrome browser for the changes to be applied.
Chromium can be launched from Applications > Internet > Chromium Web Browser. You can also alunch it from the terminal using the command chromium-browser. Since this install is a development build, some advanced functionality such as Support for Plugins(including Flash Plugin), Printing and support for Google Gears will not be available until it’s next release.
