Built Yocto (Poky fido branch) linux distro for Raspberry Pi 2 following this excellent tutorial Part 1.

Now trying to run Chromium.

Added meta-browser to my bblayers.conf

Added chromium recipes to my .bb image file.

Was able to compile and build my image but getting these errors when trying to run:

root@raspberrypi2:/usr/bin/chromium# ./chrome

--use-gl=egl

I'd be very interested to have it working with hardware acceleration

root@raspberrypi2:/usr/bin/chromium# export DISPLAY=:0.0 && ./chrome --no-sandbox --use-gl=egl

Any pointers are welcome.

Perhaps this helps....from my "ps" slightly different platform.

  /bin/sh /usr/bin/google-chrome  


2009 root      2424 S    {google-chrome} /bin/sh /usr/bin/google-chrome
2010 root      378m S    /usr/bin/chrome/chrome --use-gl=egl --user-data-dir=/home/root/.chromium/
2012 root      1956 S    /usr/sbin/chrome-devel-sandbox /usr/bin/chrome/chrome --type=zygote --user-data-dir=/home/  
2013 root      100m S    /usr/bin/chrome/chrome --type=zygote --user-data-dir=/home/root/.chromium/
2016 root      108m S    /usr/bin/chrome/chrome --type=zygote --user-data-dir=/home/root/.chromium/
2069 root      212m S    /usr/bin/chrome/chrome --type=renderer --use-gl=egl --enable-deferred-image-decoding --lan
2078 root      175m S    /usr/bin/chrome/chrome --type=renderer --use-gl=egl --enable-deferred-image-decoding --lan  

This was launched from a desktop icon "/bin/sh /usr/bin/google-chrome" which in turn set all the variables seen in the following threads.
