That works too. But the offer is always there if you need access to hardware you dont have that i do.

And i think i offered to send you a Jetson if we really needed some beefier hardware.  If not, i meant to.    ( not a NX :) )

Not to worry ... I have just received word that a Pi 4 is being contributed by a generous donor, so if I want to, I can keep doing 32-bit builds on the Pi 3 that PD contributed, and 64-bit on the Pi 4.

I looked for the definitive listing of Linux flavors supported and never found it.  on the Appimage website it shows the linux brand "icons" for the major flavors.  Deb, Red, Ubuntu etc... but no "written" listing with references to the popular derived flavors i.e. raspberry pi OS, raspian, Mint, and the myriad others...

 

oh wait, that's normal in the linux environment.

You can totally help by downloading the appimage and trying it out on your ARM board. From what I understand, if you're running Armbian then that means you have something other than a Raspberry Pi.

That kind of misses the point. An appimage is supposed to work on *any* flavor of Linux as long as it's running the same CPU as the one it was built on (such as 64-bit x86). If you are running an uncommon distribution then please try it and let us know if it worked!

I didnt think about the 32/64 bit issue.  All my ARM boards i 'use' are 64bit.  I do have a Banana PI M3 in the closet. Ill have to dig it out later today and load it with Armbian Bullseye. Its a 32bit chip.

You should be able to run the 32 bit image on a 64 bit board. In fact, I would love it if you could try that.

Updated releases of the Citadel AppImage are here [https://www.citadel.org/appimage.html] as of today, July 11. We are currently supporting 64-bit AMD/Intel and 32-bit ARM (Raspberry Pi) because those are the systems people actually seem to want ro run Citadel on.

We'll call these "late stage beta". If they run at all, they will likely run well. We believe we have most compatibility issues worked out, on the two target platforms. We may put off the 64-bit ARM image for a while since most ARM users want to run Raspberry Pi with the standard Pi OS, which is 32-bit. Users of other boards can still run Easy Install.

The final stage of development, unless compatibility issues are discovered, will focus on utilities, client, and ease of installation.

Subject: General Availability of the Citadel AppImage

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]


I am pleased to announce that the AppImage distribution of the Citadel System has now been released, beginning with version 932 of the system. These images are available for 64-bit AMD/Intel and for 32-bit ARM (Raspberry Pi).

These are binary images comprised of a single file which unpacks at runtime and contains the entire system. You can test it with a single command without installing it. You can install it with a single command as well.

As a super bonusfest, you can also migrate from Easy Install to AppImage in-place. It will require removing some of the old pieces and just keeping your data directory. As long as you're moving from like-to-like architecture, it should work great.

The AppImage distribution also includes a migrate mode, allowing you to move a Citadel installation from one machine to another automatically, as long as both sides are running the same version of Citadel. (If not, sorry, you'll have to upgrade the source system first.)

All of this is now available at www.citadel.org. Share and Enjoy.

I plan on giving this a shot later this week or weekend on the Pi400+.

Yep, it should run fine on a Pi 400 as long as you are running Raspberry Pi OS (32-bit).

Please be advised that after a very poor reception, the AppImage version of Citadel has been discontinued.

We will be releasing Docker images soon. So far, it looks like it's working much better.

Docker images are ready for testing :)

Go to https://www.citadel.org/docker.html to learn more. So far, this is working way better than the AppImage distribution was, and most of the work we did on that has translated very nicely to the container. It's extremely stable and should be compatible with any host system on which Docker will run.

We have 64-bit AMD/Intel and 32-bit ARM containers available.

It is currently considered a test build, but our intention is to make it the primary way people run the Citadel system, both on your own hardware and in the cloud.

MUCH better so far..  

Other than the expected complaint about 32bit image on a 64 bit OS, it loaded and ran without crashing on my 64bit ARM board.  Admin account worked and was able to create a new user and get in.  Will do more testing tomorow.
