    requires a graphics driver with at least OpenGL 3.3 support

    Hi there, my laptop is a Samsung P530 with Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU M 330 2.13GHz and Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller inside. I'm a Fedora Linux user and I'm using version 29, it's excellent Linux Distro, however, I have problems starting the Blender 3D 2.8 and in the terminal prompt I read this message: "Blender requires a graphics driver with at least OpenGL 3.3 support.The program will now close.".
    So I investigated a bit:
    - my graphical drivers in use - driver=i915 latency=0
    - direct rendering - Yes
    - the version of OpenGL present in the system - OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 18.2.8

    I saw the Intel web site but I noticed that the graphic drivers for Linux aren't more supported.

    Could any of you help me to resolve this problem ?

    Thanks for reading me and you have a great time, Rino.

    You can override the version which may, or may not work:

    Code:
    MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=3.3 MESA_GLSL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=330 blender
    If you can't get a driver to support a new enough OpenGL you could use an older version of blender to match the greatest OpenGL version you can support. Or get an external GPU?
