Hi Folks,

Am trying to get Chrome working in FreeBSD 10.1 in an X11/Xorg setup (other X11 apps are working fine):

$ uname -a
FreeBSD freebsd 10.1-RELEASE-p19 FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE-p19 #0: Sat Aug 22 03:55:09 UTC 2015     root at  amd64

$ sudo pkg install chromium
Updating FreeBSD repository catalogue...

Checking integrity... done (0 conflicting)
The following 1 package(s) will be affected (of 0 checked):

New packages to be INSTALLED:
	chromium: 46.0.2490.86

The process will require 148 MiB more space.

Proceed with this action? [y/N]: y

[root at freebsd /usr/ports/www/chromium]# which chrome

$ chrome &
libGL error: No matching fbConfigs or visuals found
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast

Ideas or suggestions most appreciated, thanks!
