[Piglit] Building current piglit on ubuntu 12.04?

OK, now that I know the python3 requirement is soft, here's how I got
current piglit running on ubuntu 12.04.
sudo apt-get install -y python-dev python-nose python-six
# ubuntu 12.04's matplotlib is too old, as are some of its dependencies
# Install it anyway via apt to get dependencies, then update
sudo apt-get remove -y python-six python-numpy
python-matplotlib python-pyparsing python-mako
# purge any locally installed modules. Careful.
rm -rf $HOME/.local/lib/python*
# Work around error from pip install.
sudo /usr/bin/easy_install -U distribute
# Carefully install barely new enough versions of a few things
pip install --user pyparsing==1.5.6
pip install --user numpy==1.7.0 # required by piglit's CMakeLists.txt
pip install --user matplotlib==1.4.3
python2 piglit run -1 -t texture tests/quick results/quick
python2 piglit summary console results/quick
I'm using trivial backports of packages linux-generic-lts-utopic and
nvidia-352 for the kernel and nvidia drivers,
and lspci says my graphics card is GF110 [GeForce GTX 570].
It still crashes the system nearly instantly with a fairly recent
nvidia card and driver, yay closed source.
I may try to narrow that down some more and blacklist the tests that
break the system,
or I may switch to the AMD W600 and catalyst, which is close to
another configuration I care about.
Or I might switch to only testing on ubuntu 16.04 for a while, where
things seem more stable,
and just hope Ubuntu 12.04 vanishes in a puff of greasy black smoke soon.
In any case, I'll probably move to a non-RAID system for testing (!).
Watching the RAID rebuild itself
after a graphics driver crash is no fun.
