Any news on NEON-less build?

  • Hello, as I mentioned on linux questions, Vivaldi fails on Nvidia Tegra (on Toshiba AC-100 netbook) with "Invalid Instructions". And that's probably because it is built with NEON instructions, whatever-they-are.

    Is there a chance for a NEON-less build?

    • What is your OS?
    • Which version of vivaldi are you installing?
    • If it is an OS that supports 32-bit applications, have you tried using the 32-bit ARM test build from the latest snapshot? (Just to make sure you're not trying to install the regular linux version.).

  • The OS is Slackware-arm current, just tried to install vivaldi-snapshot_1.14.1077.25-1_armhf.deb ,

    $ /opt/vivaldi-snapshot/vivaldi-snapshot

    No suitable library for HTML5 MP4 (H.264/AAC) video and MP3 audio was
    found, therefore only open codecs will play.

    For assistance on how to enable proprietary media, visit:

    Illegal instruction

    In gdb,
    (gdb) run
    Starting program: /opt/vivaldi-snapshot/vivaldi-bin
    [Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]
    Using host libthread_db library "/lib/".

    Program received signal SIGILL, Illegal instruction.
