There is no Google Chrome in Sabayon per se, but there's www-client/chromium in both entropy and portage, which is basically the same, since chrome is based on the open source project "chromium" (do not confuse this with the chromium arcade game, also in entropy and portage). As of now, version 5.0.375.23 of chromium (released 2 weeks ago according to ).

For entropy (recommended package manager for Sabayon):

Code: Select all

equo install www-client/chromium
For portage:

Code: Select all

emerge www-client/chromium

You can also merge the pre-compiled (binary) package www-client/chromium-bin from Portage, which is currently at version 5.0.376:

Code: Select all

# eix www-client/chromium
* www-client/chromium
     Available versions:  (~)4.0.302.2[1] (~)5.0.360.5[1] [M](~)5.0.375.23[1] (~)5.0.375.29 (~)5.0.375.38 [M](~)5.0.396.0 **9999 {+ffmpeg mp3 +plugins-symlink x264}
     Description:         Open-source version of Google Chrome web browser

[I] www-client/chromium-bin
     Available versions:  (~)5.0.308.0_p37385 (~)5.0.376.0_p44230 **9999 {+plugins-symlink}
     Installed versions:  5.0.376.0_p44230(01:25:26 06/05/10)(plugins-symlink)
     Description:         Open-source version of Google Chrome web browser (binary version)

[1] "sabayon" /var/lib/layman/sabayon

Found 2 matches.
It's faster to merge the binary package from Portage than the source package, as I believe it takes a fair while to compile.
