I'm intending to install Chromium on an old IBM ThinkPad T41p and would be interested to know if it works best with any particular window manager.

Well, it either won't build or won't run or won't run from a package install (all three) here for months now. But I cannot answer the question.

jb_fvwm2, it will now if you edit the Makefile and build from ports. Change the CFLAGS line to this:
Code:
CFLAGS+= -fno-omit-frame-pointer -fno-stack-protector
Then rebuild the port.

I built Chromium yesterday from a month-old ports tree without any alterations.

I have installed it but can't run it.
Code:
chromium: not found
