For Linux Users

On Linux it is easiest to install the appropriate binaries directly using the following commands.

Figure Out Which Architecture Your Processor Has

The following command will return the machine hardware name. For example, x86_64 indicates that you're running on a AMD 64.

uname -m

We currently only support AMD 64 for Linux. Please let us know if you have a ARM64 processor, so we know that we should increase priority for supporting ARM64 processors for Linux.
