Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 982209
Impossible to update google chrome to v28
Last modified: 2013-10-17 19:08:52 EDT
Description of problem:
Latest google chrome browser (v. 28) requires glibc-3.4.15 which is not shipped for RHEL 6. In addition, google doesn't support Chrome v. 27 anymore (not available through google repository). This make it installation of new google chrome impossible on RHEL 6, update is also impossible (as version can't be updated from v27 to v28 because of missing glibc dependencies)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Google Chrome v. 28
Try to install google chrome latest version on RHEL
Steps to Reproduce:
There is no glibc 3.4.15. Maybe you mean the kernel version 3.4.15?

That's libstdc++, not glibc. I don't think we can do anything about this, but I'll let the gcc maintainers close this as wontfix.
Yeah, the only way around this would be convince google to build chrome on RHEL using Developer Toolset, then it would work. Updating the system libstdc++.so.6 is definitely not an option.
