Is it possible to get hardware accelerated WebGL in any browser in any way in Ubuntu 20.04?

We tried Chromium but the rendering performance was very terrible. GPU acceleration has some issues on the Ubuntu 20.04.
If your main application is WebGL, please keep using Ubuntu 18.04.

Yeah, it's just that the bugs in uvcvideo driver have been finally fixed in new kernel (5.4.y). My main application needs both hw WebGl and uvcvideo. Any idea what I should do?

We will check whether we can install our latest Kernel 5.4 and uboot packages on Ubuntu 18.04 or not.

Install the following packages:

http://deb.odroid.in/packages/uboot_202 ... _armhf.deb
http://deb.odroid.in/packages/bootini_2 ... _armhf.deb
And finally the kernel
http://deb.odroid.in/kernels/linux-odro ... _armhf.deb

Must install all the 3 packages
This should get you on 5.4

Be sure to have a backup ready in case something goest wrong
