Lenovo Thinkpad T440S
Embedded T4400 graphics
Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS
None. Standard Intel T4400 chip set
v 2.81 alpha
Could not duplicate the issue launching Blender via blender-softwaregl
Short description of error
Any file operation using file manager immediately crashes blender with following error:
blender: src/intel/genxml/gen75_pack.h:72: __gen_uint: Assertion `v <= max' failed.
Aborted (core dumped)
This includes opening, linking, appending .blend project files as well as attempting to save an image from the render screen.
Please note that file access NOT using the file manager seems to behave normally, ie File > Revert or File > Recover
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Start Blender and attempt to Open, Append, Link, Open Recent a project file. Or Help > System Info or save image from render screen. Blender immediately terminates before the user is prompted to select a folder or file so this is not project file specific.
I also tried deleting bookmarks.txt, recent-files.txt, startup.blend and userpref.blend. Allowed Blender to create a new config rather than updating a 2.80 version, same result.
My experience seems to be identical to what is described in T69461, however no AMD or GPU hardware is present in this system.
