Now that Raspian is now Raspberry Pi OS, and Raspberry Pi has released a 64 bit OS version, https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/new-raspberry-pi-os-release-december-2020/, will there be an update to the PandaPi OS based on the 64 bit OS? Or a new 64 bit fork?
I purposely purchased the Raspberry Pi 4B 8MB to future proof it to some degree, and the platform is ideal for a 64 bit OS which will run well on a minimum of 2GB, with 4GB being a safe amount of memory.
When running uname -m on the CL of PandaPi, it returns armv7l indicating that the OS is 32 bit.
From a link on Hackaday, the article "Why you should run a 64 bit OS on your Raspberry Pi" https://matteocroce.medium.com/why-you-should-run-a-64-bit-os-on-your-raspberry-pi4-bd5290d48947
This issue had been going on this long with no updates?
Based on the age of the images for the RPi 4B which are now almost three years old, it appears as if you have abandoned the Raspberry Pi and your users who are waiting for a newly compiled image based on the 64 bit Raspberry Pi OS and the latest version of Merlin.
I for one am ready to look for another board since you are no longer supporting the PandaPi boards. 😫
you remind me and I just have written one tutorial: How to install pandapi to the latest octopi image
Maybe I'm showing my age, but how does one update the 64 bit image with updates that are coming out? They correct bugs, but I don't know how to integrate them.
I look forward to giving it a try when you're ready. I need to get my printer put back together now.
I have recompiled all the kernel and app with 64 bit compiler, it seems work well, and will upload the new Imag file after more test.
I didn't realize that! for the gcc I used to compile was
which has x64 in the name.But as you said, the compiled software and OS is 32-bit.
