new 64bit beta please, with kernel header packages?

Now that there is a 64bit kernel header package (yay, that took a loooong time), I don't suppose new Raspberry Pi OS 64bit images can get created (including that package), even though they are still Beta?

The existing images are sort of out-of-date (late Aug 2020)...

Signal Private Messenger Desktop Client for Manjaro/Arch Linux

Someone named "lsfxz" on Github has made pre-compiled aarch64 binary packages for Signal, but the catch is that you have to install them in Manjaro, or Arch linux:

One question for everyone - how do I make it run on boot?
To get some command to run (once, not periodically) at boot time, put your command(s) in /etc/rc.local

If you'd like to periodically run some command, then you should set up a cron job:

Code: Select all

sudo crontab -e

Re: Rust 1.49 (ARM64 supported) made it into Debian experimental, but not into starting-to-freeze Debian 11 "Bullseye"!

Young constantly changing languages like Rust might not suit the Debian model, but for the older, stable, languages it works well.

Re: Rust 1.49 (ARM64 supported) made it into Debian experimental, but not into starting-to-freeze Debian 11 "Bullseye"!

You've articulated a developer's perspective - just hand-install Rust (outside the apt packaging system). To counterbalance that perspective with a more Dev Ops/Sysadmin perspective: every time you can stay within the apt packaging system, then security updates become much more automated (thanks to ...

Rust 1.49 (ARM64 supported) made it into Debian experimental, but not into starting-to-freeze Debian 11 "Bullseye"!

The first phase of the Debian 11 “Bullseye” freeze has now happened . I was hoping the recent release of the Rust programming language (1.49) would make it into this freeze, but alas, it has only made it into the “experimental” area, so far . What’s so special about Rust 1.49, you ask? It’s the firs...

Maximum attached file size of 14MB or less is recommended, in case an .mp4 gets uploaded, causing transcoding crunching

Just FYI: my Mattermost server has about 60 real-world, human users, and the RPi4 handled all the traffic easily. Note that the traffic demand on this server has been quite light.

You'll have a much more difficult time getting Wireguard working in Raspberry Pi OS 64bit, at present, due to the absence of a proper kernel headers package.
