    My team in China have applied this Chrome version 69 to physical PC. The Chrome is able to be installed and open in this physical PC.

    However, this Chrome is able to be installed into a mini PC but can’t be open with the following message display:

    This mini PC is configured with the following:

      Try updating the system from the base repositories and it will fix this chrome error.

      # yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=base,updates update

      and then reboot into 7.4 once it completes.

        Dear Ravi Saive,

        Thank you for your response, but I still cannot start Google chrome when I remote to my VPS via Putty, Bitvise SSH. It returns error: “(google-chrome:2704): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display“.

        So, can I run Google chrome when I remote to VPS via Putty or Bitwise SSH?


        • Ravi Saive says:


          That’s not possible bro, how can you run a Google chrome from a Putty without any GUI? Google chrome needs 1GB RAM with GUI support to run it..

      • chinmay says:

        add --no-sandbox option if running on root.

  8. Dragos Alexe says:

    Ravi , could you update the article to use GPG key from local file rather than allowing yum to retrieve the key from an external source?? It would be very helpful for me!!!

    • Ravi Saive says:


      If you don’t want to retrieve GPG key from external sources online, you can create your own GPG key using tools. Else you can download and install it locally as shown.

      # wget -q -O -

    You could try using –skip-broken to work around the problem
    You could try running: rpm -Va –nofiles –nodigest
