Raspberry Pi 5

Post by TugboatWill »

Will WTware run on a RPi5? If not, when is it planned to become available?

Not supported now. Not in short term. March or April 2024, I think. RPi5 is 64-bit only. New Linux kernel and full set of 64-bit binaries needed, +200MB to WTware distributive.

Now in WTware we have two Linux kernels for all thousands of x86 computers: one kernel for older 32-bit computers with legacy BIOS and second kernel for newer 64-bit computers with UEFI.

For Raspberry, we have another two Linux kernels. Because kernel for RPi2 and RPi3 won't run on RPi4.

For RPi5, we should make third kernel.

Two kernels for thousands of different computers from different manufacturers on x86.

Three kernels for five motherboards (RPi2, RPI3b, RPi3B+, RPi4, RPi5) from single manufacturer.

Thanks for the feedback. Will this go through beta or will it be a general release when it is ready?
