Just to make it very plain ... we should NEVER say that somebody should 
upgrade from their supported distro just to fix the bug. We may be forced 
to tell them we don't see much hope for fixing their bug in the old 
distro, but you should be vrey aware and conscious, that this is failure 
on our side. We have promised them to support their distro for a year and 
month (or so) ... we may have to fail to honor our promise, but we should 
be aware that we are failing.

try nomodeset and if it helps you have KMS problem?

ldd <binary file> |grep libGL

I think that it is in the very default installation, but not 100% 
positive about that.
