I installed julia using
sudo apt install julia
realising this was version 1.0.3 and not finding a binary for 1.5.3 I followed the steps for compiling Julia at https://juliaberry.github.io/compile.html.
This started fine but then received an error
/home/pi/Applications/julia/src/gc.c:999: undefined reference to `__atomic_load_8’
along with other error messages all related to `__atomic_load_8’. I am wondering what I should do next?
