Blender don't start after upgrade

I was using blender 3.6.2 without any problems, today I updated my system and the application has been updated to the 3.6.4 ver. When I try to open the application it says:

blender                                                                                 ✔  8s  
Read prefs: "/home/denielton/.config/blender/3.6/config/userpref.blend"
Writing: /tmp/blender.crash.txt
zsh: segmentation fault (core dumped)  blender

Inside /tmp/blender.crash.txt:

# Python backtrace

I thought the problem could be related to my userpref.blend file, but after deleting the file the problem persist.

blender                                                                                   SEGV ✘

I tried to downgrade back to 3.6.2, but now when I try to open the application it says:

blender                                                                                    127 ✘

Thank you for your attention!

You’re on AMD graphics, so in order to use blender you need mesa-nonfree, which you can find here.

I’ll try this, mate! It’s kinda strange for me because 3.6.2 was working just fine before update.

Yeah, there was a recent change in blender which now requires this on AMD graphics.

I’m on Intel graphics and here blender starts normally without mesa-nonfree. And I suppose the Nvidia users with proprietary drivers won’t need it either.

Working perfectly now! Thank you so much.
