Processor has sse2 but cannot install.

Post by bigroc2223 » 2020-07-14, 02:52

Hello,

I am trying to install Palemoon on Linux Mint Mate 20.4. When I install Palemoon I get an error saying the processor does not support sse2. I just did a good search and everything I am finding says it does.

"Braswell" (14 nm)
All models support: MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSSE3, SSE4.1, SSE4.2, Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST), Intel 64, XD bit (an NX bit implementation), Intel VT-x, AES-NI.

Is there anything I can do to get this to install?

Thanks,
Rocky

Is sse2 listed in your /proc/cpuinfo?

Please open a Terminal and show the output of

Code: Select all

lscpu
Powerline adapters (dLAN) hardly interfere shortwave radio, so stop using them.

Yes, I still use a 64 bit capable Pentium 4 670 processor with Pale Moon.

It says I do not have SSE2 their red. However, as said when I googled the Intel Celeron N3060 all the resulted said it has SSE2. I wonder if the driver for linux is just a generic driver and that is why? Also don't microcodes update instructions? I tried searching I found one from 2018 but it did not say what it was updating so I did not install it. Is there a way I can force install it just to see if it will actually run or if it crashes?

Bad idea. I don't know if it's a matter of updating a driver to get it to work, but you'll need SSE2 at a minimum to get it to work.

Looks like your OS/kernel doesn't properly detect the CPU and falls back to a safe operational mode. This effectively prevents Pale Moon from running since it needs to be able to detect SSE2 instructions (they are hard-required by the code)
There is no way to "switch off" the SSE2 requirement. You have to fix your OS side of things to properly use the hardware. Are you running the correct kernel for your hardware?

And please put the outputs in code tags (5th button from left in the post editor).

Is sse2 listed in your /proc/cpuinfo?
It says I do not have SSE2 their red. However, as said when I googled the Intel Celeron N3060 all the resulted said it has SSE2. I wonder if the driver for linux is just a generic driver and that is why? Also don't microcodes update instructions? I tried searching I found one from 2018 but it did not say what it was updating so I did not install it. Is there a way I can force install it just to see if it will actually run or if it crashes?
Would the consensus be if a processor does not have SSE2 it cannot have SSE3? If this processor does not have SSE2 why did it let me install a browser that required SSE3 today? I cannot remember exactly which one it was as I was experimenting and was not thinking about this at the time. However, I remember seeing it as one of the requirements in one of the browsers. Matter a fact I'm almost positive it was WaterFox.

After doing some hunting around I remembered CPU-Z shows processor instructions sets. This processor supports SSE-SSE4.2 as per the CPU-Z image I uploaded which is 100% accurate as I contacted Intel as well. So what can I do about this? I just want my palemoon boys :lol: :lol: :lol:

Can you install it from the Ubuntu 20.04 deb in my repo, which is the correct version for Mint 20.4? Here's the direct link (for now) to the correct 64-bit 28.10.0 deb: https://download.opensuse.org/repositor ... _amd64.deb

Mint should have some sort of deb package installer already set up to install a deb file if you just click on the file; if not, let us know.

Use his repo instead to make sure you stay updated.
The repo package does not include the internal updater because apt will do the work for you.

Powerline adapters (dLAN) hardly interfere shortwave radio, so stop using them.

Yes, I still use a 64 bit capable Pentium 4 670 processor with Pale Moon.

We did it guys! WTG!!!! Thanks for your help fellas greatly appreciated!

***Edit - After installing it should of added the repository to software sources > additional repositories right? That way it can get updates?

Since it is working fine I guess this is just a case of Mint using a generic driver for my processor? Should I get in contact with them and file a bug report? That way people do not have this problem with other software? How would I go about getting into contact with them to do so?

No, the deb does not automatically add the software "channel" to your sources. Only a few do that, like those from Google or Opera. You'll have to copy and paste a few lines of code in the terminal to do that. Click on the Ubuntu icon here and follow the instructions to add the repository for "xUbuntu" 20.04. Be careful that you're following the right set of instructions, since some people mix them up with the ones above or below them.

Your tools are showing that your processor does support sse2, as in the output of lscpu, so it may be something with the build of Pale Moon you were trying to install. Sometime natively built packages are just better in some respects: https://distrowatch.com/weekly.php?issue=20200518#qa

Just saw this blog post today with the instructions for my repo, too: http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/202 ... ntu-20-04/

After you add it and update your apt database, you should see the update to 28.11.0 now in the repo.

Are you sure? You didn't show the contents of /proc/cpuinfo but you did show the output of lscpu in another post. Note the line beginning with "Flags:" - the list of flags that follows contains "sse2" in your case. In fact, this list should be a verbatim copy of the list of flags that can be seen by reading /proc/cpuinfo.

Regarding the Linux kernel, it is irrelevant as to which CPU model was chosen in the Kconfig configuration scheme at the time of compilation. There is no way to compile the kernel in such a way that it can inhibit feature discovery by way of the CPUID instruction. That said, there is a Kconfig option that controls whether an interface to the CPUID instruction is exposed as a character device under /dev but, to my knowledge, this is seldom - if ever - used. After all, there is little point in relying on this abstraction as it is safer to just issue the instruction directly.

Having your distro load microcode updates at boot time is definitely a good idea, but microcode updates cannot be used to implement new, complex instruction sets. That is, you either have SSE2 or you don't and that is a fixed property of your CPU.

As an aside, every x86-64/AMD64 processor supports SSE2, without exception. In fact, every x86-64 processor supports all of MMX, MMXEXT, SSE and SSE2. There is never a legitimate reason for a 64-bit application to complain that SSE2 is absent or to refrain from using SSE2 instructions if it is beneficial. From that, I'm guessing that you were trying to run a 32-bit build of Pale Moon until now, as attempting SSE2 feature discovery would otherwise make no sense.

All in all, the notion that the kernel would ever have been at fault is dubious, to say the least.
bigroc2223 wrote: Would the consensus be if a processor does not have SSE2 it cannot have SSE3?
That would be a valid assertion, yes. However, it doesn't apply to you. Your CPU supports both SSE2 and SSE3, as conveyed by the "sse2" and "pni" flags respectively.
