Package: zenity
Version: 3.22.0-1+b1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?

I've attempted to use Zenity in a preset script I install on PCs. It is failing to install on systems where the CPU does not support SSE2, such as the Athlon XP.

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or

I've tested a few systems and found that the Zenity package in Stretch works on modern processors, but fails on earlier 32-bit processors such as the Athlon XP or Pentium III, both of which I believe are still supported in Stetch.

   * What was the outcome of this action?

I am hoping I've helped narrow down a bug.

   * What outcome did you expect instead?

As the Athlon XP and other processors are still supposedly supported by Debian Stretch, it would be nice if Zenity could work.
