Thats strange, it is definitely not a athlon/intel issue, but it seems
to be a problem of library dependencies. I am testing on debian sid
on intel and gem works there ..
When did you do the latest update of the gem package ?
(which debian version do you have ?)

You have to add the path to the cyclone externals
pd -lib /usr/lib/pd/externs/cyclone
Have to improve the documentation of the package ...
