When I'm trying to launch Blender it fails with the message "illegal hardware instruction" (launched from command line).

Additional info:
* Blender 2.82.a-6
* Blender downloaded from the official site (which is statically linked) launches without problems. Which can mean that the problem is (maybe) not in Blender itself, but in some dynamic lib it uses. Tried to use ltrace tool but it showed nothing, just the same message about illegal HW instruction.

Steps to reproduce:
Launch Blender from terminal.
This task depends upon

With what processor? And what's the exact error?
Comment by Igor (igvalor) - Sunday, 31 May 2020, 03:21 GMT
The hardware is:
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad 6600
GPU: Nvidia GT630

P.S. Don't tell me, that Blender should not work on such a piece of cr...p!
