Recap: Cepstral Swift and Debian Stretch

Here is a summary of what we now know:

The only package in play now is

It was downloaded with wget from a link given to me from support at

The package was downloaded to Debian Stretch on a dual boot system
where Arch Linux is the secondary OS. It was installed on Debian, and
after problems were discovered, was moved to Arch and installed there,
where it ran without error.

The output of file for the swift.bin executable was identical on b oth
systems, and was:

 ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically
linked, interpreter /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2, for GNU/Linux 2.6.9,
not stripped, with debug_info

I obtained a checksum on each swift.bin, and those too were identical,
each one was this:

bf67fecfbae44e68f2c6d669fbb65512e197db87  /opt/swift/bin/swift.bin

By "identical" I mean I saved each output to a file and used diff to
compare them, no output was produced.

The hardware is a Dell Optiplex 780 with plenty of ram and CPU power,
Debian is using kernel 4.9.0, and Arch is using 4.9.11.  Swift executes
without error on Arch, but on Debian where I want to use it, it reports
a bad format for swift.bin, which ldd also describes an not an
executable ffile.

Sorry about  earlier top-posts, I'm new to the list and have bad
