just a quick question. I tried to start julia 0.7.0 beta2 from some nightly build tar.gz available from the website in a VM which gave me an error
ERROR: Unable to find compatible target in system image.
The VM runs stock debian 9 (stretch) x86_64, the CPU type is
head /proc/cpuinfo processor : 0 vendor_id : GenuineIntel cpu family : 6 model : 15 model name : Intel Celeron_4x0 (Conroe/Merom Class Core 2)
OK, fair enough, that is indeed ancient. I would assume that llvm and/or the instruction set extensions used when building julia would not run on a CPU with that feature set ? Is there some documentation/ table where I could look up what the basic requirements for those nightly builds are ? Also, If I would build it myself from source, would it be possible to get it to run on that VM ? What is the minimal CPU feature set in that case ?
