Google Chrome 18.104.22.168 Released â€“ openSUSE Fedora RPM â€“ True 64-Bit Support
To follow updates I will provide for Chrome RPM packages please bookmark or check:
Call for Help: Please someone test the 64-Bit version as this is the first that will not be linked to the 32-Bit libraries. I do not have access to a 64-Bit machine, and need to verify what libraries it’s trying to call, so I can make sure they are linked right in the RPM’s form here on out. Thank you for the help ahead of time, and looking forward to giving a nice solid 64-Bit release
The newest release of the Chrome Unstable browser is upon us..

Note: If you get dependency errors please add
Due to popular demand I’ve included the symlinks in the build of the rpm package (I’ve tested the 32-bit but not the 64 bit).
If the above rpm installs, but does not run because of a missing library please let me know what libraries it says it’s missing (this is very key with the 64-Bit build).
Also within this build I did a post script to include PARTIAL flash support (assuming your flash is installed as /usr/lib/browser-plugins/libflashplayer.so) If you have other locations please let me know, and I can change this and look for the file prior to linking it, but too lazy for now).
You can start google chrome with flash support using:
Again please test the 64-Bit and let me know what libraries it’s trying to link too.. Someone with a base build of the 64-Bit Install would be great (also someone with only KDE 4 installed, that’d be great to see if it’s requiring some GTK libraries.. Damn, I really need me a 64-Bit machine..
