This will automatically configure and enable the official Google repository, import Google’s signing key, and install the latest google-chrome-stable executable in your path. If you’re on a RHEL 6.X flavor the it will also automatically find and install all of the unmet dependencies that would normally make the installation fail. You can rerun the script whenever you want to grab the latest version of Google Chrome and, if you’re using RHEL 7.X, then you can update the package using yum as you would with any other package.
Alternatively, you can add the repository manually if you’re using a 7.X version. If you’re using Amazon Linux AMI then you’re definitely on a 6.X version and need to use the installation script. Otherwise, you can run
and check the output for the version number to confirm that you’re using 7.X. For example, if you’re using RHEL 7.0 then you would expect to see something like:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.0 (Maipo)
You can use the official Google repository if you see a 7.X version there. To add it to your system, simply create a file called /etc/yum.repos.d/google-chrome.repo with the following contents.
to install the Chrome package. This will add the google-chrome-stable script in /usr/bin/. Note that this is the same thing that the installation script does on 7.X flavors, so it’s safe to use the script regardless of which version you’re on.
