Installing-Chromium-on-Fedora-14

This is very easy…actually I think it is too easy to even blog about… but anyway. I just went here: repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/spot/chromium and then added the repos file to my /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory.

[code]

filename: fedora-chromium.repo

Place this file in your /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory

[fedora-chromium] name=Chromium web browser and deps baseurl=http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/spot/chromium/fedora-$releasever/$basearch/ enabled=1 gpgcheck=0

[fedora-chromium-source] name=Chromium web browser and deps – Source baseurl=http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/spot/chromium/fedora-$releasever/SRPMS/ enabled=0 gpgcheck=0 [/code]

After that, ran a “yum update” and “yum install chromium”, and that was it! easy as pie. now, it’s not Iron, but still it is faster than firefox.
The downside is that google knows all, I guess.

I never thought I would see the day I would be using some other browser besides firefox, but I guess that day has come. Goodbye, Firefox. Maybe I’ll be back one day when there have been some improvements, but thanks for everything!
