    Default Google Repo: Chrome has weird dependencies

    I enabled the Google Linux repository as described here because I wanted an easy way to install and test the Chrome (Chromium?) browser.

    It works fine but all the Chrome packages seem to have dependencies on Qt. I am using Gnome and installing a browser which is based on GTK shouldn't require me to install hundreds of megs of Qt dependencies, should it? Is this just an oversight by Google?

    Default Re: Google Repo: Chrome has weird dependencies

    If you want to try Chromium (not Chrome), enable the Contrib repository or go on OBS and install Chromium. Chrome has known problems but I have never encountered any of them in Chromium.

    And yes, it is more than an oversight - Google could be using OBS to package Chrome for openSUSE but chooses to do it without using the obvious tool.
