40 hours.  Yeah, that's enough waiting :)

Overall I've never seen that error and there is very little to go on.  (Did
you read the log file that bitbake suggests  -- does it include anything
more useful or just the same?)

The only thing I can say is that "out of memory" seems to me like quite a
likely problem for Chromium compilation and when things just stop like that
with no clear reason?

Are you building standard master branch, by the way?

Also just checking the obvious here - I assume your system has an active
swap partition also, so that it's not firmly limited to 16GB, right?
