Pisi Linux 2.0 (x86_64) with AMD Radeon HD 833 with xorg-video-radeon driver
Error is also reproducible on Windows 10 Pro x86_64/AMD Radeon RX580 4GB with Radeon Software 18.8.1
Broken: 2.8 Alpha
Short description of error
Blender 2.8 crashes in OpenGL model whenever a new material slot is added and a new material is created in the slot.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Load a .blend (the default cube will do it, too)
Set rendering to OpenGL
Unlink a material from an object
Add new material to the same object
It looks like my system installed Nouveau by default. Will run experiment again with official drivers.
Pisi Linux seems to pre-install Nouveau by default, regardless of GPU type.
