Problems with GPU process crashing in Chromium

Hi

 

I'm trying to get Chromium running on the SabreSD board and having problems with the GPU process crashing when opening a web page. My setup is as follows

 

FSL Community BSP 1.8 Fido

Kernel 3.14.28-1.0.0_ga+g91cf351

core-image-sato image with chromium (40.0.2214.91) added

Freescale SabreSD board

 

On boot chromium reports hardware acceleration is enabled and everything looks fine but as soon as you open a web page and check chrome://gpu again all graphics features have changed to "Software only". The chromium log the message is "GpuProcessHostUIShim: The GPU process crashed!".

 

Has anyone any idea why this is happening. I saw this first on our own board based on the SabreSD so then tried it on a actual SabreSD board with the same result.

 

Thanks in advance

Ian
