How to install Google Chrome on SLED 11 SP3?


How can find package is required.

rpm -Uvh google-chrome-stable_current_i386.rpm 
error: Failed dependencies:
	[COLOR="#FF0000"]xorg-x11-libX11 < 7.6_1[/COLOR] conflicts with google-chrome-stable-28.0.1500.71

installed on SLED 11 SP3 version is 7.4

As far as I know, you can’t install Google Chrome on SLED 11 SP3, at least not easily. In addition to the problem that you post, as of version 13 (I think, might have been 12), Google changed the required versions of some libraries to versions newer than are included in SLED. There’s probably some way to hack it to work if you are determined enough but I’ve never tried.

I noticed this thread is over a year old and I see no progression has
been made to update the xorg-x11-libX11 libraries. So, I guess it is
safe to say SLED 11sp3 will NEVER support the installation of Chrome.
One can only hope SLED 12 improves on keeping libraries more current.[/color]

Note that SLED is SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop with the emphasis on
Enterprise - it’s a supported desktop with known working components. If
you want to use unsupported browsers you’re better of using openSUSE.

As for SLED12, I see no mention of Google Chrome in the draft release
