First we need to enable Google Chrome repository on Fedora 17. Simply open Terminal and edit the file /etc/yum.repos.d/google-chrome.repo.
nano /etc/yum.repos.d/google-chrome.repo
Then paste these lines into the file
[google-chrome]
name=google-chrome - 32-bit
baseurl=http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/i386

gpgcheck=1
