Possibility of porting Nutyx to AArch64?
« on: Fri Nov 16 08:19:15 2018 »
Hi,

I was wondering if Nutyx has any plans to support the ARM architecture, specifically ARMv8/AArch64? I would like to try installing this distro on my Banana PI W2 board.

If there aren't any plans, is there an easy way to bootstrap Nutyx to this specific architecture?

I would love to. After several attempts, I had to give up. I wasn't able to do it

Hi Thierry,

Can you tell me the steps or give me a tutorial of what you have done, I'm curious to try it out myself.

A good start is the CLFS Project:

and you look for ARM construction
