Ubuntu 64 RPI 4B
« on: December 15, 2019, 08:08:16 AM »
On AIR's lead, I was able to  install Ubuntu server 19.10.1 on my RPi 4B 4GB. I then installed the Unity Desktop. This is so cool to run what I have on my laptop  on my RPi.

It seems to run well.

I said 5 years ago that I was done with 32 bit Linux. That was until the Raspberry Pi came along. I'm done with hobby Raspbian 32 and relieved I'm running on a commercial grade supported 64 bit OS.

BTW, if for some reason you want to be able to run the 32bit challenge binaries created on your Raspbian system, do this:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture armhf
sudo apt update
apt-get install libc6:armhf


AIR.

Thanks AIR, I'll give that a try.

If you own a RPi 4B 4GB, time to upgrade to a commercial grade OS. Ubuntu stole the RPi OS show.
