We wanted to test the capabilities of this web scanner.
Unlucky, i'm unable to launch it on a newly created Debian 11 headless machine after decompressing the archive (machine up to date). Windows Version works fine.
Does it need some additional packages to make it works ?

First line error : /opt/arachni-1.6.0-0.6.0/.system/gems/gems/ffi-1.15.5/lib/ffi/library.rb:401: [BUG] Illegal instruction at 0x00007efe96ac53c0
ruby 2.7.5p203 (2021-11-24 revision f69aeb8314) [x86_64-linux]

Full logs attached

Thanks for your help.
