    Hi.
    I'm trying to install the current Chrome release (64 bits RPM) and I get a dependency problem with libstdc++.so.6(GLIBCXX_3.4.15)(64bit).
    I've done search on solutions but nothing works.

    Thanks in advance!

    P.S.:
    The reason I wish to install Chrome (using FF currently) is somewhat poor printing formatting issues with FF.
    I don't have this problem with the same FF in Windows 7.
    I'm having the same problem in Mint.
    There, I could install Chromium, and printing works correctly.

    Chromium has no flash support making it essencially useless.

    Flash Player is available for CentOS as well.
    Just get the RPM file.

    Yeah but this is only for Ubuntu. What about debian?

    It's basically a single shared object that goes into your home dir.
    So you can try that without any problems. Worst case, use the tarball.
