Does HDRP work at all in Linux? (Crashes Building Probes)

    I've been trying to make the switch from UE4 to Unity (because Unity doesn't treat Linux as a second class citizen) however, I can't for the life of me get HDRP to work. I've tried different drivers and configurations, but every time I run an HDRP project the editor crashes building light probes and launches a bunch of zombified Unity shader compilers.

    Specs:
    Ubuntu 18.04
    Radeon 1700
    24GB Ram
    Geforce 1660 (Crashes on both 435 and 440 drivers)
    Radeon 570 (Crashes on Mesa 19.2.8).

    Incidentally, when changing to the GPU lightmapper the same thing happens. As a guy whose main thing is environmental art, this is a showstopping bug for me.

    I've filed a bug report. I've tried this on 2019.3f15, 2019.4.0 (LTS), 2020.1b and 2020.2a. They all crash and become zombified no matter what combination of DEs I use. Even tried doing this on a straight X server with no DE.

    Also, incidentally I've tried this on 3-4 different distributions besides Ubuntu 18.04. Vulkan works, the editor runs scenes fine in
    both HDRP and URP. Both sets of hardware obviously support compute shaders.
