Chromium (90.0.4430.85-0.1) does not start

The latest chromium (90.0.4430.85-0.1) does not start.
There is an error starting with:

$ chromium
[6778:6778:0424/] InitializeSandbox() called with multiple threads in process gpu-process.
[6778:6778:0424/] renderergl_utils.cpp:2194 (ClearErrors): Preexisting GL error 0x00000500 as of ../../third_party/angle/src/libANGLE/renderer/gl/TextureGL.cpp, setImageHelper:256. 
[6778:6778:0424/] Skia shader compilation error

Downgrading chromium to 90.0.4430.72 temporally solved this problem.

Do you have any idea (other then waiting for update) how to solve this problem with the version 90.0.4430.85-0.1?

Try to disable in chromium advanced settings :
untick “use hardware acceleration when available”

Thank you @45-Oz.
Unchecking this settings solved the issue with version 90.0.4430.85-0.1 .

But in general, we have to wait for the next chromium version, where the problem with hardware acceleration will be solved :slight_smile:
