Hi Sergey,

VBO was enabled! When turned off it doesn't crash in wireframe or rendered. Thanks! Of course would be nice if it didn't hard crash, but understand that the problem might be with Intel.

I couldn't find blender-softwaregl? Sorry.

It is a bug in Mesa which i've reported a while ago:

Unfortunately, nothing we could do from blender side to workaround this driver bug. Thanks for the report!

P.S. blender-softwaregl is a script inside archive.
