Has anyone been able to get Google Chrome working on Fedora 25? After launching Chrome, I'm seeing a black screen that locks up the gdm.

Google Chrome:

54.0.2840.100-1
google-chrome-stable-54.0.2840.100-1.x86_64

Fedora:

Fedora release 25 (Twenty Five)

Just tested in a virtual machine running up-to-date Fedora 25 workstation, and it works just fine. I installed it by downloading the .rpm file from here. Then installed the .rpm file with dnf (dnf install ~/Downloads/google...).

Why do you want Google Chrome, when there is Chromium in the official Fedora repository (sudo dnf install chromium) (All I can think of is Netflix & Co.)

Thanks for the attempt to reproduce. I upgraded from google stable to beta and things seem to be working. google-chrome-beta-55.0.2883.59-1.x86_64


Both Chromium 53 and 54 are having similar, if not the same, issues as Google Chrome Stable on Fedora 25, unusable black screen. Why I prefer Google Chrome: HBO, Netflix, Plugins, Bookmarks across platforms, and Integration with everyday life-- But to be fair, I've never given Chromium a chance.

Expect those streaming services, chromium is just as functional as Chrome. Since it's not in your case, you may want to consider filing a bug report...
