baseurl=http://dl.google.com/linux/rpm/stable/x86_64
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub

Running Chrome

Fedora

Run Chromium with Kerberos:

% chromium-browser\
 --auth-server-whitelist="*.example.com"\
 --auth-negotiate-delegate-whitelist="*.example.com"

Google

Run Chrome with Kerberos:

% google-chrome\
 --auth-server-whitelist="*.example.com"\
 --auth-negotiate-delegate-whitelist="*.example.com"

If the aforementioned approach doesn't work, you can override an AuthScheme policy [4, 7]:

{ "AuthServerWhitelist": "*.example.com",
"AuthNegotiateDelegateWhitelist": "*.example.com" }

Installing CA Certificate

This step is optional. To install CA certificate go to Preferences -> Under the Hood -> Manage Certificates. Select the Authorities tab, then click Import. Select the CA certificate, then select at least *Trust this certificate for identifying web sites.* Finally, restart the browser.
