Chromium 61 broke hardware acceleration
#1
I did a apt upgrade which installed Chromium 61 over 60. Unfortunately this version has no GPU acceleration at all. Can someone post your apt policy results? Mine is like the following. Thanks.

Code:
[linaro-alip:~]$ apt policy chromium
chromium:
 Installed: 61.0.3163.100-1~deb9u1
 Candidate: 61.0.3163.100-1~deb9u1
 Version table:
*** 61.0.3163.100-1~deb9u1 500
       500 http://security.debian.org stretch/updates/main armhf Packages
       100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
    59.0.3071.86-1 500
       500 http://http.debian.net/debian stretch/main armhf Packages
    53.0.2785.143-1.1linarostretch1 500
       500 http://repo.linaro.org/ubuntu/linaro-overlay stretch/main armhf Packages

My test results are same as yours.
I try this "apt-get upgrade". Sad

Me too. Sudo apt-get upgrade after a clean 2.0.1 installation broke hw acceleration.  Sad

Yes, this is a known problem. Don't update. ;-)

You might be able to

echo "<package-name> hold" | sudo dpkg --set-selections

or

sudo apt-mark hold <package-name>

to stop the upgrade on the appropriate package. I haven't tried.

If you're still stuck. I fixed it with this :

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libGLESv2.so /usr/lib/chromium/libGLESv2.so
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libEGL.so /usr/lib/chromium/libEGL.so

When chromium is updated required libraries are not linked correctly. Re-creating links worked for me.

I tried this with TinkerOS v2.0.3 and Chromium v62, and it does report hardware accelerated now. The directories were incorrect in the post above, so here are the new link commands.
Code:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libGLESv2.so /usr/lib/chromium/libGLESv2.so
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libEGL.so /usr/lib/chromium/libEGL.so

Thanks, maniolias!

Thanks for your correction! It was a mistake.

No problem! I presumed it was a typo. Glad to see somebody discover the reason for the hardware acceleration fail.

Edit: Since others included a screenshot, here is mine TinkerOS v2.0.3 with Chromium v62
