I use Minecraft: Java Edition on a Linux system. Whenever I try to launch versions 1.8.9 and before, the doesn't start, and as soon as I hit the "Play" button, the Launcher re-opens stating that the game has crashed. The game runs perfectly if I play it in earlier versions.
I was able to generate a crash report by enabling "Open output log when games start" in the Settings menu. It's a bit lengthy, so I made a Pastebin for it... https://pastebin.com/KN2Ac9vb
I would like to know what's going wrong, and how to fix this error so I can play 1.8.9 properly.
