Comment (by Krejzi):

 First of all, you should NEVER run tests via ssh. Test should be ran from
 a local session.

 Second, any library depending on Mesa (libGL, libGLESv2, libEGL) require
 working DRI installation at runtime (and running tests = runtime) and that
 means that X server should be running locally with DRI2 enabled and at
 least OGL 3.0 for all tests to fail. Check glxinfo output for OpenGL
 version string or see an example on the Xorg Configuration page.

 Third, but not related. I believe that running tests is a waste of time.
 They are not called "regression tests" without a reason. It could mean
 it's there for developer to check if he/she broke something with some new
 changes. Just take GCC test suite for example, for every fix there's a
 regression test so that DEVELOPER can't introduce the bug AGAIN. If you
 break something as an user, you'll know soon enough :)
