I don't fully get the issue given that with /etc/ld.so.nohwcap the
system should use less optimized libraries, given that such libraries
does not exist on amd64 and have been removed on i386.
To try to understand the issue, could you please run the command "ldd
/usr/bin/glxgears" with and without /etc/ld.so.nohwcap and send me the
