Raspberry pi 5 installation fails


Installed fails on 64bit: Linux raspberrypi 6.1.0-rpi4-rpi-2712 #1 SMP PREEMPT Debian 1:6.1.54-1+rpt2 (2023-10-05) aarch64 GNU/Linux.

I hope I can still get support to make this work?

Any help?

Note - no support for pi5 at this time

Note - no official support available for a number of months

That said, run “dpkg --print-architecture” to show if it shows ‘arm64’. The kernels they use show aarch64 even on 32bit os. The 32bit will report ‘armhf’ on a pi4. If you’re really running 64bit, try 32bit. You can’t break anything. It already doesn’t work.

Will try 32bit soon, thanks :slight_smile:

On 32bit everything works! :smiley:
