    Hi
    The infamous 1-click, but I recommend you just download and install
    manually;
    <http://software.opensuse.org/search?baseproject=openSUSE%3A11.2&p=1&q=chromium>

    You can add a local directory as a repository and check the 'plain rpm'
    box so you can use zypper or YaST to install.

    Thnx for reply. i saw the software.opensuse.org with your help. thnx.
    But my english not good enough to understand you

    i think software.opensuse.org is contrib repos. Because "openSUSE:Factory:Contrib/openSUSE_11.2" writing on the web site.

    your dont recommend to me add the contrib repo to my system ?

    Just download and install manually using zypper. It's easy, you only need 2 packages: chromium and v8.

    i downloaded from Index of
    /repositories/openSUSE:/11.2:/Contrib/standard/x86_64
    I am install it from repository. all seems good with it.

    ~>sudo zypper ar
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...trib/standard/
    openSUSE_11.2:Contrib
    ~>sudo zypper in chromium v8

    have no problem with it (i am use it daily as a default browser)

    it was a problem when chromium was switched from dbuck repo to contrib repo
    it changed package name. from chromium-browser to chromium.
    So i was confused a little why it not updated.

    AFAIK this name conflicts with this project
    http://chromium.sourceforge.net/

    but i have no problem with it
    Code:
    ~> LANG=en_EN zypper se chromium
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    
    S | Name               | Summary                                | Type

    | chromium           | Google's opens source browser project  | srcpackage

    and my repos looks like this
    Code:
    ~> LANG=en_EN zypper lr -d

    Default Re: Chromium and contrib in 11.2

    Hello all,

    I am running opensuse 11.2 64 bit. I am using chromium from contrib repo. Everything worked great until yesterday I performed an upgrade to Chromium 4.0.276.0 and flash-player 10.0.42.34-0.1.1 (i586) from update repo.

    After this upgrade the browser on certain pages performs "Fullscreen" behavior if I can describe it correctly: maximizes to a much bigger screen than the one I actually have)

    for example in this site: Greek-Movies

    I have noticed that if I uninstall flash-player the problem does not occur. I downgraded to flash-player 10.0.32.18-3.2.1 but the problem is still there. So in my opinion there is some problem with chromium 4.0.276.0-1.1 (x86_64) & flash-player.

    Is anybody else experiencing the same problem?

    thanks
