Trouble compiling Chromium in Slack

I heard about the game Chromium B.S.U. in this years best open source game poll, so I thought I'd give it a try. Unfortunately, I can't get it to compile in Slackware 9.0. After untarring the src and data files, I run ./configure, then make, which gives me the following:

cerbere@shithead:~/temp/chromium/Chromium-0.9$ make
cd support/openal/; make
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/cerbere/temp/chromium/Chromium-0.9/support/openal'
mkdir -p ./lib
cd linux; sh; ./configure --enable-sdl; make

Can anyone give me some advice on this?

I also got the same 'line 3570 in config' error on the first attempt at building. I managed to get past that and a handful of subsequent build errors, but ended on errors about some mutex functions jazz in one of the openal files (most of the build errors I ran into after the config file were in support/openal). Finally I just installed a prebuilt tgz. So, my two cents on building this particular game from source: don't. installpkg chromium-0.9.12-i586-2jr.tgz

Thanks for the tip and the link, notAslacker. I'd already tried that package after finding it on, but unfortunately for me, it is for Slack 9.1. I'm still running 9.0, but thought I'd give it a shot anyway. No joy :-(

I may have to forget about chromium, at least until I finally decide to move to 9.1 (still waiting for 2.6 kernel to shake out a bit more).
