Aarch64 vs Armv7l ?
« on: July 29, 2023, 07:18:44 AM »
Hello,

I was curious if there is any disadvantage of using the aarch64 version of PiCore instead of the armv7l 32-bit version?

Does it have any limitation of GPIOs / driver (ex: integrated wifi,bt) side? I always went with 32 bit version because of Raspberry Pi 4 are 4GB or less in my case. I remember having a lot of issues when switch from x86 kernel to x64 years ago with linux. Many things not compatible such as application and libraries.

I was wondering if the support is still beta / unstable on the PI 64-bit kernel?

Would you recommend the 64 bit kernel as a daily driver?

Both are well supported.  Raspi does not consider 64bit beta anymore

The piCore implementation is pure 64 bit or pure 32 bit.  No real limitations to either right now.

Thanks Paul for your explanation. I'll switch to PiCore64 for future proofing and keep things simple on Pi3 and up.
