Could you elaborate?  Are you using Chromium for the first time, or
upgrading from a version that worked?  What action do you carry out
to provoke the hang?  Do you have flashplugin-nonfree or
gecko-mediaplayer installed?  Does

 chromium --temp-profile


 chromium --disable-plugins

avoid trouble?  What is the nature of the hang --- can you move the
mouse?  toggle capslock?  does Alt-Sysrq + R followed by Alt-F1 work?
Alt-Sysrq + S, U, B? [do not try this last one without knowing what
"magic sysrq" means, please]  can you ssh in from another machine?  Is
the hard drive light on?
