I think you are using software rendering (so you are not using you GPU to render).
The vendor string and renderer string implies as much. And that is why you are locked to opengl 2.1.
lshw -c video shows my system is using i915.
$ glxinfo | grep -i opengl
OpenGL vendor string: Brian Paul OpenGL renderer string: Mesa X11 OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 8.0.5 OpenGL shading language version string: 1.20 OpenGL extensions:

A couple notes:
Same exact issues on CentOS 7. Fedora is not an option. I was using Fedora before, but after it committed suicide (an auto updated kernel started failing to boot) the third time due to some problems with the video drives and my GTX-970, I have decided I can't be productive on Fedora. Is it your intent to support RHEL distributions? Or must I have a Ubuntu distribution to use blender?

Rebased on latest blender2.8.
Disabling OpenGL and Composite extensions in CompizConfig Settings Manager had no effect.

Running blender-softwaregl also segfaults.

You can get the UVs to be in the 0-1 range if you have the Keep UV and edit mode mesh selection in sync option ON.
The generated UV does not fall into the texture field.

I tried blender-2.79-968bf0df148 (today's build) and everything works ! The viewport GPU rendering is also at least 10 times faster (I'm not joking). It fixed some other crashs I experienced with the node wrangler, and the final render is finished faster too

Have you tried the 396. or 410. drivers?
Is there any specific operation that triggers this?
Could you share your blend and try to find redoable steps that lead to this?
Similar error Brecht, first time i can not run Blender in Linux, it seems you guys started using some fresh-out-the-oven libraries:

Hi, getting the same error with latest Git build on Debian.

The crash also happens with amdgpu-pro 18.30. I will try 18.20 tonight
@Brecht Van Lommel (brecht): Do you have access to Vega 64?
Does the previous driver version crash, too?
Wed, Nov 14
Yeah I just updated it, it works for me on windows too, but not on linux with their official driver. I'd like to see if a linux Vega user with amdgpu-pro can reproduce the issue.

Thanks for the report, but we can't solve this here. Bugs in the Ubuntu packaging should be reported to them:

Was on holiday, so could not reply ...
The problem is fixed for me, too. Thanks a lot for you outstanding(!) work on blender!
Oct 23 2018
Yeah, it's fixed for me too. Thanks a lot.
Oct 22 2018
Awesome, also fixed it for me on Win10!
I'm now able to open Blender 2.8
I tried to fix it by renaming local variables rB905921d2b524c2657a727a5c3b8799e7d6e28161
