Google released their Chrome browser for linux but I got an error when installing. I was informed that I need a higher lsb version? What is lsb? Where can I find the latest lsb package/source ?

By the way, would it be OK if I upgrade to CentOS 5.4?

  • Why can't you create a statically linked binary for Linux like you can with other, more functional, unixes? That would seem to solve many of these types of problems. – user31182 Mar 15 '10 at 1:51

A precompiled binary is available at http://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/~cxs548/chrome

  • Strange... i just tried iton CentOS 5.5 and it complains for not finding libexpat.so.1 .CentOS 5.5 comes with libexpat 0.5 – Paralife Jan 6 '11 at 22:03

And I am sure that there will be a rpm coming out soon as people are working on it follow centos on twitter.

Further you should upgrade to 5.4, can't see a reason why not.
