I maintain a distro that runs chromium called FullePageOS.
I added gpu acceleration, but now mp4 video crashes the chromium tab when its viewed (mpeg works).
How can I fix this?
Alternatively how do I figure out exactly what is causing chromium to crash?
I am using kernel 4.4.34-v7+ and Chromium Version 51.0.2704.91
Its a bug I can see on FullPageOS RC1, here is link to the bug with conversation on github.
Update: Terminal output is:
libGL error: MESA-LOADER: failed to retrieve device information (chromium-browser:1964): GConf-WARNING **: Client failed to connect to the D-BUS daemon: /usr/bin/dbus-launch terminated abnormally without any error message MESA-LOADER: failed to retrieve device information MESA-LOADER: failed to retrieve device information Received signal 8 <unknown> 000000000038 #0 0x00005535e098 base::debug::StackTrace::StackTrace() #1 0x00005535dfe8 base::debug::(anonymous namespace)::StackDumpSignalHandler() #2 0x000075b941a0 <unknown> [end of stack trace]
Steps to reproduce:
Set up wifi/connect to ethernet
- After boot vnc, or press ctrl+tab to open a new chromium window (Chromium starts at boot)
- Put the URL: https://graftechnology.s3.amazonaws.com/videos/matthew-west-promo-android-tablet9.mp4
Expected: video should play Result: get an "awww snap" page
Notes: if you add the tab to FullPageDashboard, and the tab is not selected, you can hear the video playing, but once you switch to it so it becomes visible it crashes.
Note: I also tried runnign with
--enable-logging --v=1 and look in chrome_debug.log, and could not find something about the crash (I am not sure what to grep for)
