Short description of error

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

Event Timeline

Looks like the issue is in gpu_shader.c:
363 »···if (vertexcode)
364 »···»···shader->vertex = glCreateShader(GL_VERTEX_SHADER);

when I run it without -b
(gdb) p __glewCreateShader
$2 = (PFNGLCREATESHADERPROC) 0x7ffff07f2460

but with -b
(gdb) p __glewCreateShader

Some add-ons (like at least, Math Vis and Object Scatter ones) make blender crash in background mode (trying to access some OGL stuff), can you check whether those are enabled by default for you?

Also, blender should work fine with factory settings (blender -b --factory-startup) ?

Eh! Your last comment kind of confirm my first impression ;)

Ok it's Measureit addon that's crashing blender. Thanks for the quick turn around.

OK, will merge with own report then, thanks.
