I have been a windows user ever since i can remember and i have always wanted to give linux a try. I have used ubuntu before but a friend recommended me fedora.
Anyways i partitioned my laptop and now i have Windows 8 and Fedora 17 x64 running on my computer.
The installation was succesful but i have been having a hard time updating and installing repositories. HAve tried multiple online tutorial on post installation.
I want to install the google repository but so far i havent been able to.
This is what i did:
sudo rpm --import linux_signing_key.pub
Then i ran this to verify the installation. So far so good.
rpm -qi gpg-pubkey-7fac5991-*
Then it said, To manually verify an RPM package, you can run the command:
rpm --checksig -v packagename.rpm
but when i ran this it said it couldnt find such package.
there was supposed to be a google.repo file on etc/yum.repos.d but there is none.
So i tried to manually put it there by creating a file named google-chrome.repo on same folder with this in it:
name=google-chrome - 64-bit
but when i try to save the file it says i do not have permission to do that.
I right clicked yum.repos.d, clicked on properties and then permissions. Added a new user, "aacs90" and allowed permissions to create and modify files, clicked on apply and accept. Tried to save the file once again but the same thing happened, not enuff permission.
But even before all this, i tried downloading chrome from google's website. I selected 64bit..rpm(Fedora/opensuse), clicked on accept and install and then it just keeps loading(?) but nothing happens.
I would appreciate any help you guys can give,
