For a bit of background, I am trying to install Chrome (or Chromium) on to a gentoo user account at my university. We are allowed to install software as we like, however we lack superuser access meaning I cannot just run
Attempting to unpack the 64-bit .rpm provided by google and run it out of my user directory provided me with this:
$ ./chrome/google/chrome/google-chrome ./chrome/google/chrome/google-chrome: error while loading shared libraries: libcups.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I don't have access to
rpm2cpio (rendering the only other answer I could find less than helpful) but I do have access to
rpmunpack and a whole host of
rpm2[insert archive type here] commands.
