Raspberry Pi 4 and 64bit OS - version

Postby bilekflo on Thu Jan 07, 2021 1:31 pm

Hi everybody!

I wonder if it is possible to run Dyalog APL interpreter on a 64bit Raspberry PI OS.
on a Raspberry PI4.
Can I use also Ubuntu 20.04 as OS or must it be Raspberry OS only?

Kind regards,

It's odd, but it's never occurred to me to run 32 bit Dyalog on 64-bit Raspbian - we've just been waiting for a solid 64-bit Raspbian before we have a go at porting to it !

And given that 32-bit Dyalog runs on 64-bit Windows and AIX, and used to on Linux when we produced 32-bit Dyalog for Linux, then there's a pretty good chance that it will. You might need some 32-bit support libraries though.

I'll add it to the list of things to do in the not too distant future.

We have however never tried Dyalog on Pi on anything but Raspbian, which is what we build on. So it is less likely to work on Ubuntu on Pi.
