    It does install, use zypper to install it
    sudo zypper in <path-to-google-chrome.rpm>
    or see this long thread on adding google as a repository

    you can add google's rpm's as a repository and install chrome with zypper or yast.
    For a 64bit OS do
    Code:
    sudo zypper ar http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/x86_64 google
    sudo zypper in google-chrome-stable
    for 32 bit you need to add this URI
    Code:
    sudo zypper ar http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/i386 google
    sudo zypper in  google-chrome-stable

    about the error it's a security feature, to install googl's signing key so you don't get that warning do this
    download the key
    Code:
    wget https://dl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub
    then install it
    Code:
    sudo rpm --import linux_signing_key.pub
    you've already installed it, this can be of use when and if you update it with apper
