Unreal engine 4 instant crash linux
I'm trying to get Unreal Engine to run on my laptop. I've installed it about 3 different times but it's always the same.
Every time I create a new project (a blank one with as little things in it as possible) my computer just instant freeze. Sometimes the project doesn't even get to show on my screen before the freeze.
I have a ie-8350u and 16gb of ram. I don't have a gpu. I don't know if that could be the issue. Unity and Blender both run real smooth, but Unreal is a nightmare.
I'm using Archlinux.
If anybody could point me in the right direction to understand why it freeze my computer like that i'd really appreciate it.

I tried to lauch it from the command line but as usual it froze when the editor appeared. I couldn't see the terminal because the editor took the focus so I can't say at what process it froze exactly.
The editor didn't flag it as a crash, but I have the log file. I couldn't see a particular line that I could flag as the cause of the problem and the editor seemed to be working fine in the background while my computer was completly frozen since it logged the exit process and I forced the shutdown by holding the power button on my laptop.
I linked the log file just in case someone could find something, but at this point I'm really just think that my laptop doesn't have the ressources to run unreal-engine GPU-wise.link text
Can you launch the editor from command line? That should give you the log more readily. Or it would be available in the project directory Saved/Logs/ or Saved/Crashes/ that should give you more pointers...
The missing GPU might be it as not all Intel gpus handle the engine ok(it runs Vulkan by default now btw)
