Use the command grep avx /proc/cpuinfo or grep sse2 /proc/cpuinfo and look for the word ‘avx’ or ‘sse2’. If both types exist, use AVX since it is faster than SSE2. Place the two extracted binaries in ~/tools directory and enable executable privilege on each of the two binaries. Create an empty ~/data directory.
