[erlang-questions] use of opcode 153; this emulator supports only up to 152 after upgrading to R140B4

Bryan,

Try recompiling your source with the R14B04 compiler (or in general, whatever you're targeting). That's the only solution to this I know, though I had this problem some time ago. Maybe there are better ways now.

Here's a question for OTP: shouldn't these sorts of VM-level versioning issues be detected and reported more straightforwardly? I'd prefer a root cause + what to do.
Something like, "foo.beam was compiled for vm-isa-10.0 but VM requires incompatible vm-isa-14.4. To fix this, recompile from source."

Perhaps even better: rewrite the beam files to the new instruction set en masse and/or individually at load time.

Best,
Thomas
