I have a bit of experience with fedora, but not a lot. At the moment I am running Linux home03 3.1.1-1.fc16.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Nov 11 21:47:56 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux. I am using the Gnome-3 desktop. Not sure what I think of it, honestly.
Problem: After trying to add the google-chromium browser I decided the problem had to be that I did not have a repository enabled that contains it. Fedora handles its repositories in an altogether different way than Debian, so I first had to learn about that. I next found a very helpful post from Leigh1234 in which he advises:
# Place this file in your /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory
name=Builds of the "stable" tag of the Chromium Web Browser
name=Builds of the "stable" tag of the Chromium Web Browser - Source
So I tried to do that, creating a file named fedora-chromium-stable. If I do yum repolist I see that file listed in /etc/yum/repos.d, which is where I understand it should be.
Problem: Whether I use yum or add/remove software I cannot find the chrome browser.
OK, I have missed something. Can a kind person add to my fedora education?
BTW, fedora 16 is looking very good indeed on my laptop. Everything seems to work, system appears to be quite stable. Well done!
