On an RPM-based system (Fedora, SUSE, Mandriva, RHEL, etc.), download the key and then use rpm to install it.

rpm -qi gpg-pubkey-7fac5991-4615767f

To manually verify an RPM package, you can run the command:

rpm --checksig -v packagename.rpm

RPM can verify and install packages, but it doesn’t interact with repositories directly. See the other configuration guides for information on configuring your system to use the Google repositories.

download your rpm installation to your machine and

rpm -U google-application.rpm

First, use rpm to install the key, as described in the RPM setup guide.

As root, add the following to a file called google.repo in /etc/yum.repos.d/:

name=Google - i386

If your .repo file contains gpgcheck=1, signatures will automatically be verified during installation.

If you are running a 64-bit distribution, you should also add the x86_64 repository, which will provide you with native 64-bit versions of some of our software:

name=Google - x86_64

You can then use yum as usual, e.g.

yum install picasa googleearth-package google-desktop-linux

If you want to disable google repo after install google Application

yum --disablerepo=google
