itvision.altervista.org -> How to: install Google Chrome 52 and higher in CentOS 6.8

Mind that the instruction provided below is only meant for people who understand what they are doing, because what you're about to do will potentially break your system. Here's how you can install the newest Google Chrome web-browser in CentOS 6.8:

sudo yum install wget
wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/fedora/linux/updates/15/x86_64/libstdc++-4.6.3-2.fc15.x86_64.rpm

sudo rpm -Uvh libstdc++-4.6.3-2.fc15.x86_64.rpm

 

If you previously compiled software using GCC you may want to update GCC as well.

wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/fedora/linux/updates/15/x86_64/libstdc++-devel-4.6.3-2.fc15.x86_64.rpm
wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/fedora/linux/updates/15/x86_64/cpp-4.6.3-2.fc15.x86_64.rpm
wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/fedora/linux/updates/15/x86_64/gcc-4.6.3-2.fc15.x86_64.rpm
wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/fedora/linux/updates/15/x86_64/gcc-c++-4.6.3-2.fc15.x86_64.rpm

sudo rpm -Uvh libstdc++-devel-4.6.3-2.fc15.x86_64.rpm cpp-4.6.3-2.fc15.x86_64.rpm gcc-4.6.3-2.fc15.x86_64.rpm gcc-c++-4.6.3-2.fc15.x86_64.rpm

 

If you want to revert all these changes and go back to vanilla CentOS, run this command:

sudo yum distribution-synchronization 'libstdc++*'

Update 2014-01-17: fixed broken links. Sorry. I didn't know Fedora 15 had been moved to archive.
Update 2015-08-12: Removed all references to CentOS 6.5 - no one uses it any longer.
