Julia requires more than 4GB – currently the 8GB of my laptop are full
and extended by 6GB of swap; still building and maybe will fail — and
supports these platform:
CUDA 10.1 Nvidia CUDA (64-bit)
ROCM AMD ROCM (64-bit)
oneAPI Intel oneAPI (64-bit)
Upstream provides binaries for these. AFAIK, for most of them, Julia is
cross-compiled and not natively compiled. Well, I am still missing the
point to natively compile on limited boards.
Having substitutes running on non-x86_64 architectures is one thing,
directly build on these non-x86_64 architectures is another.
(I am not saying that direct builds on these non-x86_64 architectures is
not interesting by itself but that I miss the aim of such for some heavy
packages as Julia or GHC or else.)
