Support for 32-bit arm architecture

Hi everyone!
I was wondering if you’re planning to support 32-bit arm architecture at some point in the future.
I would like to run ActyxOS on a 32-bit industrial Raspberry Pi (specifically a RevPi Core 3) which doesn’t come with an official OS-image for 64-bit architecture.

Good morning @sam.lk

Welcome to the community forum.

We are currently on the last steps to release a new version. This version will support x86_64, aarch64, armv7, and arm.

Please be patient we try to get it ready next month.

One more thing @sam.lk,

In the meantime, you could go on and enable the experimental 64Bit kernel mode on your RPi. This is working quite reliable for me for many months.

how-to:

Edit as root the /boot/config.txt and add the following line at the beginning:

arm_64bit=1

After you saving and restarting the PI, you should get the following on the pi

> pi@raspberrypi:~ $ lscpu
Architecture:        aarch64
Byte Order:          Little Endian
CPU(s):              4
On-line CPU(s) list: 0-3
Thread(s) per core:  1
Core(s) per socket:  4
Socket(s):           1
Vendor ID:           ARM
Model:               4
Model name:          Cortex-A53
Stepping:            r0p4
CPU max MHz:         1200.0000
CPU min MHz:         600.0000
BogoMIPS:            38.40
Flags:               fp asimd evtstrm crc32 cpuid

Now you should be able to download and execute the aarch64 binaries.
