[Bug 1377220] Re: Google Chrome crash with mesa 10.3 on SandyBridge GPU


According to chromium forum, (https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=418858)
this is related to the bugs of MESA 10  with the DRI3 feature.

If you disable the DRI3 feature when you run google-chrome as in the
following, GPU works.

# LIBGL_DRI3_DISABLE=1 google-chrome

I confirmed with Ubuntu 14.10 beta and google-chrome 38.

  Google Chrome crash with mesa 10.3 on SandyBridge GPU

Status in “mesa” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When I start google-chrome on my Ubuntu 14.10 system the process it
  uses to test for a working GPU crashes and then Chrome falls back to
  software rendering.

  In chrome://gpu/ I get:

  Flash: Software only, hardware acceleration unavailable
  Flash Stage3D: Software only, hardware acceleration unavailable
  Flash Stage3D Baseline profile: Software only, hardware acceleration unavailable

  Driver Bug Workarounds

  Problems Detected
  GPU process was unable to boot: GPU access is disabled in chrome://settings.

  In Ubuntu 14.04 (and also previous versions), one the same laptop, the
  exact same Google Chrome used to work perfectly with GPU acceleration.
