Has anyone tested installing the newer kernels from elrepo (or somewhere else) in order to keep google-chrome updated beyond version
27? Actually, i assumed a newer kernel would come with a newer glibc but i do not see a newer glibc via elrepo, just newer kernels. hmmm.
# yum –disablerepo=* –enablerepo=elrepo* info glibc | grep -i repo only lists my already installed glibc packages from updates.
Further, google-chrome requires gtk2 version 2.24.0 or above, and i do not see that in any alternate repos either. But that is another question because
#rpm -qi gtk2-2.18.9
finds the package, but
#yum clean all
#yum –enablerepo=* search all gtk2-2.18.9
says “No Matches found”
So clearly something is messed up if yum can not find one its own packages it itself installed, so i cannot trust it to find gtk2-2.24.
For those that do not use google-chrome-stable, each time it is newly started, the following message appears close to the top of the window:
“Google Chrome has stopped updating and no longer supports this version of your operating system.”
Assuming 3rd party repos do not work directly, has anyone tried the following:
