/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/ [0x7fc660d6aa61], you have an intel CPU and are using its integrated GPU… Probably same old known intel bugs, you can try to change 'Selection Method' in blender's userpreferences, and also consider updating your mint version (15 is starting to be old afaik, they are at 17.3 now). And probably check how to actually enable your AMD GPU instead of Intel embedded one.

A known issue caused by a bug in Mesa drivers (see T47860), updating Mesa package should fix it.
It has been reported many times in the last weeks (T47997, T47894, T47921, ....), so added a note in the release logs. In future reports we can simply link to it.

Closing as this appears to be a driver issue. We can reopen if updating driver doesn't work.
