Bug Description

Binary package hint: chromium

chromium-browser fails to open pages when webgl is enabled (default). I also filed a chromium bug:

Here what happens when starting chromium from the commandline:
fritz@jfh00:~$ chromium-browser
libEGL warning: unable to load
/usr/lib/chromium-browser/chromium-browser --type=gpu-process --channel=2862.0xba19c650.558368832: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/egl/ undefined symbol: drmGetMagic pages load when started with --disable-webgl

forgot to mention my package-information (maverick-updates, i386)

No hang but I am seeing the message. I think this is a problem with the mesa build.

Freedesktop bug here: - looks like the same problem and it's fixed upstream...

According to the upstream chromium bug, this was an issue in Modernizr.
