Hello

I'm trying to install Google-chrome in Centos 5.5 however everytime I try to install it, it complains about some library

 [root@ ## Desktop]# rpm -Uvh google-chrome-stable_current_i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        lsb >= 3.2 is needed by google-chrome-stable-5.0.375.127-55887.i386

I tried to download the lsb library on my system  via yum search, I only found redhat-lsb.i386 which is already installed and latest version.

Please help

Thank you

It's not an answer as such, but I suggest you don't install the official google-chrome. Chromium, the OSS version can use google-chrome extensions and on my system runs faster, crashes less and has a place you can report bugs to.

Install Chromium, instead.

It also supports google-chrome themes, in fact it looks exactly the same as the google-chrome it replaced. The only difference I notice is it works better.

Install with --nodeps:-

rpm -Uvh --nodeps google-chrome-stable_current_i386.rpm

The Linux Standard Base (LSB) 3.2 requirement is only an advisory, according to the answer in http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-newbie-8/problem-in-installing-google-chrome-beta_current_i386-rpm-in-fedora-12-a-790775/

You could try loading lsb-dummy from http://www.linuxbase.org/download/
That will bump you to lsb 4.0
