Running 32 bit software on aarch64


I decided to give the newest Manjaro ARM a try on my RPi3, and was (positively) surprised to see the current download is compiled for aarch64.

Does this mean I can install and use 32-bit software, for example, vivaldi-rpi? Just like I can run stuff compiled in 32-bit on Manjaro x64?


No, try to use vivaldi-arm64 since don’t exist the equivalent of the multilib repository for aarch64/arm64


I don’t think so. I haven’t tried it.

But you can give it a shot and see if it would work.

Ideally, you want to run software, compiled for the same architecture as the kernel. And on the rpi3 images, that is aarch64.


Thanks! For some reason I didn’t see it when searching for it using octopi, even though I have AUR switched on in its settings.


Octopi can only seach through AUR, if you have an AUR helper installed, like yay or trizen.
