Google Yum repository configuration on Fedora

To install and update Google programs like Chrome and Picasa using Yum, create a new configuration file named "google.repo" under /etc/yum.repos.d/. The contents of "google.repo" would like below.

[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

With this setup in place, you should be able to install Google Chrome using the following command.

# yum install google-chrome-unstable
or
# yum install google-chrome-stable
