Tip of the week 9
Chromium is an open source browser from which Google Chrome is based. Actually Chromium seems to be very similar to Chrome but there is some important differences, in few words, Chromium = Chrome (with few changes) + open source (under BSD licence) + privacy (RLZ tracking is disabled in chromium, see wikipedia).
Install Chromium on Fedora
Chromium is not on the default repo, so you just have to add this repo maintained by Tom Callaway from Red-Hat with :
natjohan# su -lc 'cd /etc/yum.repos.d && wget http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/spot/chromium/fedora-chromium-stable.repo'
OR just create a file called fedora-chromium.repo under /etc/yum.repo/ with this content :
[fedora-chromium-stable] name=Builds of the "stable" tag of the Chromium Web Browser baseurl=http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/spot/chromium-stable/fedora-$releasever/$basearch/ enabled=1 skip_if_unavailable=1 gpgcheck=0 [fedora-chromium-stable-source] name=Builds of the "stable" tag of the Chromium Web Browser - Source baseurl=http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/spot/chromium-stable/fedora-$releasever/SRPMS enabled=0 skip_if_unavailable=1 gpgcheck=0
Then, install it with yum command :
natjohan# yum install chromium
Note : this is not the latest version of chromium (v23 - december 2012), however there is no major changes in v26, but hope Tom Callaway maintained this repo up to date
