Google Chrome… Not for enterprise… (LSB 3.2 restriction)

Having seen the fuss over Google Chrome for Linux I decided to jump on the bandwagon and download it.

When I tried to install it I was met with this message:

# rpm -i google-chrome-beta_current_x86_64.rpm
warning: google-chrome-beta_current_x86_64.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 7fac5991
error: Failed dependencies:
lsb >= 3.2 is needed by google-chrome-beta-4.0.249.30-33928.x86_64
#

This restriction to LSB (Linux Standard Base) 3.2 presents a bit of a problem for any people running RHEL clones as the latest updates are actually LSB 3.1 (redhat-lsb-3.1-12.3.EL.el5.centos.x86_64).

I suppose that’s one point for the people running desktop Linux distros. I guess I will have to wait for RHEL6. :)

Cheers
