Arch Linux 64bit on Raspberry Pi 3

Postby gufkl » Wed Sep 13, 2017 3:02 pm

Hello guys
I want to ask
I want to install the linux arm arch in raspberry pi 3
but I'm confused to choose between 32bit or 64bit
on the arch linux arm website, in section aarch64 there is a description like this:
"Aarch64 Installation
This provides an installation using the mainline kernel and U-Boot." There is no support for the vendor-provided libraries, extensions, or related software. "Some of the hardware on the board may not work, or it may perform poorly."
is the statement true?
that's what makes me hesitate to try the 64bit version
so I have to choose which one?
does the application support better on 32bit?
64bit version can also run 32bit application right?
I see in the package list, 64bit applications are not complete compared to 32bit
sorry for i ask a lot :oops:

Why would you doubt the validity of that statement?

What do you want to do with the machine? If the answer requires the vendor-provided stuff, then use arm7h, if not, use aarch64.
