Ewww... you mean I have to d/l the chrome rpm, yum localinstall it, and
*then* it creates google.repo? That's *ugly*, if true. And, of course,
there's no way to get support. I can't tell if I have to create a google
email account (which I don't want) to get into the support groups, and I
don't see any way to just send an email to any kind of support.
