Stacer for Pinebook Pro

Hi all,
I am wondering if I can install stacer on my Pinebook Pro ?
Trying to do so I get a message saying : stacer is not available for the ‘aarch64’ architecture.
Excuse my noob questions, I am fairly new to this. I am double checking if there isn’t a workaround.
Would there be an alternative to stacer for the Pinebook Pro ?
Thanks folks

Hello,

Have you checked this?

Cool thanks.
Here is what I had done based on instructions I found on the net

git clone [LINK] aur archlinux org stacer.git
cd stacer
makepkg -si

which gave me :slight_smile:

==> ERROR: stacer is not available for the ‘aarch64’ architecture.


can you walk me through how go about installing from your link?

You need to do something like this before makepkg -si


but not sure it will work tho … @Strit has definitely a good answer on the way :slight_smile:

Looks easy enough. Here’s what you do:

  1. Git clone the AUR repo.
  2. cd stacer
  3. nano PKGBUILD
  4. Add aarch64 to the arch=() line. Save and close nano
  5. run makepkg -si

Ok, now I am in over my head …
I can imagine your time is shorthanded, however can you spell this out for me?
Ideally to something I can grab copy and paste :smiley:

I did spell it out. :wink:

It’s even a point form guide.

The text in the code blocks are commands or text in a file.

You did indeed …
here is what I am trying to do

[jens@Manjaro stacer]$ git clone [link] archive raspbian org/raspbian/pool/
main/s/stacer/
Cloning into ‘stacer’…
fatal: repository 'archive raspbian org/raspbian/pool/main/s/stacer/
’ not found

No. I said clone the AUR repo. Like you did the first time. :slight_smile:

hm
getting the following
==> ERROR: Cannot find the fakeroot binary.

Please make sure you have all the packages installed, that is needed for building software.

sudo pacman -Syu base-devel --needed

@Strit thank you so much for your help and patience with me! I am learning step by step here. Above was the missing information needed to get Stacer up and running.
I need to make sure I honor all of your hard work with a donation !
