Trying to run CPU-X on Tumbleweed (installed from main TW OSS repo) and I get

I do not see libpcre (whatever variant) being used in CPU-X build nor is
pcre listed as requirement on project page. You need to find out what
fails exactly and why. Probably some other library that is loaded by
CPU-X needs it. It would mean this library had not been updated for
quite some time.
Should full output of
strace cpu-x (or whatever this command that fails is called)/usr/lib64 # strace cpu-x
execve("/usr/local/bin/cpu-x", ["cpu-x"], 0x7fff907c5470 /* 65

That cannot be program that you "installed from main TW OSS repo). It is
not installed in this location.
Indeed. Good pickup. Funny that it was the correct version, but I didn't notice the
path. 'which cpu-x' could have told me that. Yes, it existed in both /usr/bin/
Removed /usr/local/bin/cpu-x and /usr/bin/cpu-x runs fine - as it should. I must have had
an old manually-installed version still hanging around from when it either wasn't
available in the TW repo or the repo version was behind the current version .
Thanks for picking that up, and sorry for the noise on the list.
(It just goes to show that a) it helps to ask the right questions, and b) sometimes we see
what we expect to see, not what's actually staring us in the face).
