Just wanted to share that I've created a repository on GitHub (based on Jose
Fonseca's import of the Chromium CVS repository) containing Chromium, and
have added a CMake-based cross platform build system.  With this
system, I've successfully built Chromium on Linux (64-bit RHEL 5 and Ubuntu
Lucid) as well as Windows 7 with Visual Studio 2008. Cygwin or MSYS are no
longer required on Windows: CMake generates a visual studio project if
desired. it supports out-of-source builds (that do not generate/modify files
inside the source tree) and installation of executables, libraries, headers,
and mothership with make install for reasonable compatibility with earlier
I've successfully run this build on the RHEL5 machine, while I've had issues
on Ubuntu Lucid (matching those seen by : "Render SPU: Display :0.0
doesn't have the necessary visual: RGB, Doublebuffer, Z") and Windows
(segfault in crserver when locking a networking mutex after starting
crappfaker). As I couldn't finish the build on these systems using the
makefiles, I can't compare with the results from the earlier system.
In any case, hopefully if there is any interest still in working with
Chromium, this may be a useful contribution. Enjoy!
