    I just tried Chrome version 46.0.2490.8 with Centos 7.0 and it didn’t work. The browser opened but I would get an “Aw Snap” for every page.

    I ended up downloaded the rpm for version 44 fromt and installing it through yum. It’s not the latest version but it’s working.

    Hi Ravi,
    Until recently I have been able to use Chrome 42 on my Scientific Linux 6.6 desktop. But when I tried to update it, it updated to the latest version 46, but now it does not work. I see Aw, Snap! everywhere. Where I am going wrong? Is my recent ‘sudo’ privilege interfering with the install or anything else? Greatly appreciate your suggestions.

    • Ravi Saive says:

      I suggest you to first remove the old version and try to re-install the latest version from official Google repository..

      • prasad says:

        Hi Ravi,
        Sorry that I did not make it clear earlier. I have removed the older version and installed the latest stable version, that does not work. I repeated this process several times without success. Now what I need is an older but functional version of Chrome as Firefox is most frustrating when it requires flash.

          On which Linux distribution you’re trying? Have you tried Richard Lloyd script? Please give a try..I hope it will work fine..

    how to run Chrome as a root user though ?

    • Ravi Saive says:

      Open google-chrome file under /opt/google/chrome folder and make the changes as suggested.

      Find and replace the following line.

      exec -a "$0" "$HERE/chrome" "$@"


      exec -a "$0" "$HERE/chrome" "$@" --user-data-dir $HOME

      save and exit to launch as root user..

    Anyone know if it’s possible to install on RHEL (Scientific Linux 6) in the home directory without root into a home directory?

    • Ravi Saive says:

      No that’s not possible, you must be root to install Chrome and run Chrome as normal user. But if you still want to install chrome on /home directory, you need to compile it from source to specific directory by placing prefix option during installation from source..
