      Have you tried installing from Google Chrome yum repositories? If no, give a try and see whether it works or not..

    Hi, tried installing using your method, typing in a terminal windows “yum info google-chrome-stable” and promptly got this error message:

    Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, langpacks [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404 – Not Found

    And subsequently the install failed. Any ideas on how to fix it?

      From where you’ve taken the above repository? we haven’t mentioned or nor uploaded in repository at dropbox? just use the google repository to install the Google Chrome as stated in this article..

      Please check you’ve correct Network DNS Name Servers in your /etc/resolv.conf file, if not added it. It’s something related to your network issue..

    Many thanks for the excellent script and post! I am now using Version 51.0.2704.106 (64-bit) to post this comment – although I did have to run the script twice on my RHEL 6.7 system (not that surprising really, since I built the system ~2011 with a much earlier RHEL version and have been upgrading it ever since.

    I first did a dry run, using the -n option, and found that I needed rpmdevtools installed; I did this manually outside the script, and then did another dry run. The second dry run returned no errors, so I removed the -n option and went for the full install.

    It got pretty far, but errored complaining about “Installed (but unpackaged) file(s) found” (lib* files in /opt/google/chrome/lib/) and then removed everything it had installed (including the old Chrome version, 37-something) from my system. With nothing to lose, I ran the script again, and it worked as advertised!
