Electron v2 Fails to Open with OpenGL Driver Enabled (Nov 2018 Raspbian) #1500
Electron fails to launch when OpenGL (Full KMS or Fake KMS) is enabled.
Upgrading to Electron v3.0.13 seems to fix the issue, but don't know if this breaks something else. Cannot use Electron v4 yet with Raspberry Pi due to dependency issue (electron/electron#16205)
Node Version: v8.15.0
MagicMirror Version: V2.6.0 and V2.7.0-dev

Electron 3.0.13 is working fine for me. The only thing was I had to update my Node.JS to v10.15.0 from v8.15.0 -- I'm not sure if that's really required, but it looks like Electron 3.x uses NODE_MODULE_VERSION 64 instead of 57, and it was causing a few of my modules to fail rebuilds (electron-rebuild was choking).
