ar flag

For Ubuntu 20.04, there is this page which has links for Ubuntu desktop for both x86_64 (amd64) and ARM64. This installs fine, but I am having trouble installing libraries so I'm going to try another version.

For Ubuntu 21.10, I found this page which has links for server images and a link for a Raspberry Pi version, but I am not using a Raspberry Pi and am looking for an ISO for installing on a genera ...

How do I install libobjc-9-dev on Ubuntu for ARM?
ar flag

I'm trying to install Clang on Ubuntu 20.04 for ARM, which needs libobjc-9-dev. The Ubuntu 20.04 ARM repositories only have a version that needs GCC 9.3 but I currently have GCC 9.4 (trying to downgrade to GCC 9.3 leads to apt prompting me to uninstall x11 and xwayland).

I'm looking for a way to just grab a newer libobjc-9-dev but I can't find any links. I found this official website, and it says "Yo ...

ua flag

I have recently installed Ubuntu ARM on my M1 MacBook Air on a virtual machine (using Parallels), and unlike Windows ARM and macOS ARM, Ubuntu ARM does not seem to include a translation layer for x86 apps, which makes the system almost unusable as many Linux software do not support ARM yet.

For example, I got this error while trying to install VSCode with Gdebi:


I cannot believe there is no tran ...

ru flag

I have heard that Ubuntu 21.10 has Kernel 5.13, which supports Apple Silicon, so, does this mean Ubuntu Server 21.10 ARM supports Apple Silicon M1 Macs? And if so, how well?

I have used Pi Imager on my regular Ubuntu system to write Ubuntu Desktop to my SD card. When I try to boot from it in my Pi 400, I get the following error:

systemd-shutdown[1]: Failed to finalize filesystems, ignoring.

and then the Pi shuts down.

To try to troubleshoot, after the repeatable failed boots, I inserted this card as USB storage  ...

Compiling ARMv7A (AArch32) code on an ARMv8A (AArch64) machine?
id flag

I've read in many places that ARMv8A supports backwards compatible ARMv7A code (the former is now called AArch64 and the later is now called AArch32).

I'm running an ARMv8A machine (on the Raspberry Pi 4B, with the BCM2835 SoC), but I would like to write and debug GNU Assembly code written in ARMv7A language. How do I compile .S files written in ARMv7A and run it on my machine?

How to install armhf snap packages in arm64 architecture?

On a fresh install of Ubuntu desktop 21.04 in arm64, I have added the armhf architecture via dpkg. When installing .deb packages, I do not encounter any difficulties. Unfortunately, this does not seem to work with snap packages, as snap install always indicates, that the respective packages are not available in my architecture, but only in armhf.

I have not found a way to add an armhf flag to the s ...

Is the new Ubuntu 21.10 compatible with 32-bit (for termux)?
in flag

I recently received a 64-bit version of new Ubuntu daily builds. You can download Ubuntu 21.10 daily builds from the Ubuntu website. You will be able to download Ubuntu 21.10 on October 14, 2021. This date is the one listed on Launchpad, the home of Ubuntu development.

Does the new version of Ubuntu (21.10) have a 32-bit version, which can be installed on Android phones within Termux?
