The standard builds of gretl since 1.9.5 use SSE2, and therefore will not run on old AMD processors. But if you're building gretl yourself that shouldn't be a problem -- unless your gcc is somehow insisting on dragging SSE2 into the build.

Please try the following commands in a terminal window and post the results. This might help to diganose your problem.

 which gretl
 ldd `which gretl_x11`
 file `which gretl_x11`
 gcc -v

and in the gretl source directory (after configuring):

 grep SSE config.h
 grep SSE config.log
