Hi All,

We've just encountered the same issue on a new server with a couple of
Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2690 0 @ 2.90GHz, stack trace the same:

.
Program received signal SIGILL, Illegal instruction.

0x0000000000557ce9 in rte_cpu_get_flag_enabled ()

I'm building DPDK with x86_64-native-linuxapp-gcc, nothing else, plain
config from DPDK. I've attempted to recompile with CONFIG_RTE_EXEC_ENV
set to 'native' instead of 'linuxapp' but nothing changes.

Did anybody had a similar issue? Any suggestion?

Thanks
