Description of problem:
Chromium seems not to be using any hardware acceleration by default
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Installing chromium and executing it.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run dnf install -y chromium
2. Run chromium from a Terminal to see the logs
about:gpu shows that only SW acceleration is available
Error message in the terminal:
[24269:24269:0914/234130.187901:ERROR:gl_implementation.cc(286)] Failed to load /usr/lib64/chromium-browser/libGLESv2.so: /usr/lib64/chromium-browser/libGLESv2.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
If this is fixed adding a symbolic link, I get the same error for libEGL.so.
After fixing the symbolic links:
ln -s /usr/lib64/libGLESv2.so.2 /usr/lib64/chromium-browser/libGLESv2.so
ln -s /usr/lib64/libEGL.so.1 /usr/lib64/chromium-browser/libEGL.so
This error is printed in a loop while chromium is opened:

However, Chromium seems to be reporting that there is HW acceleration
