Install Chromium web browser on Fedora

Tom ‘spot‘ Callaway created a repository for the Chromium, the open source version of the Google Chrome web browser

To install, first create a file called /etc/yum.repos.d/chromium.repo with the following information

[fedora-chromium]
name=Chromium web browser and deps
baseurl=http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/spot/chromium/fedora-$releasever/$basearch/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0

[fedora-chromium-source]
name=Chromium web browser and deps – Source
baseurl=http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/spot/chromium/fedora-$releasever/SRPMS/
enabled=0
gpgcheck=0

Then you run yum install -y chromium

root@shellcore:~ # yum install -y chromium
Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit
