Does it run?¶
We have compiled a list of popular applications that are of interest to the Ten64 community and methods to run them.
See the Distributions page for specific information.
Due to the 'newness' of the Ten64 and DPAA2 hardware, many distributions have not enabled the required drivers, or there are incompatibilies with our bootloader (see roadmap)
|Distribution||Native / Bare Metal||VM||Notes|
|Debian||Yes*||Yes||Traverse customized image for Ten64. Debian unstable/testing with kernel >=5.9 will work.|
|FreeBSD||No||Yes||12.0 and later works as VM. FreeBSD 13 snapshots will boot from USB but have no PCIe or DPAA2 network support|
|OpenBSD||No||No||Changes to run OpenBSD as VM under investigation|
|Alpine Linux||No||Needs work||There is an aarch64 ISO but no 'cloud' image|
|Gentoo and Funtoo||Planned||Planned|
|Arch||?||?||Need to test - see Arch ARM generic ARM64|
A future enhancement to the bare metal appliance store will allow community contributed 'patch' scripts, e.g installing a mainline kernel to enable support for DPAA2 hardware.
Router and Firewall¶
|OpenWrt||Yes||Yes||Ten64 not yet upstreamed - see the OpenWrt page in this manual|
|pfsense||No||Possible?||Might be able to generate an ARM64 installer image from source|
|IPFire||No||Yes*||Requires ACPI patch - should be in a future IPFire release|
Storage and NAS¶
|Rockstor||Yes||Yes||Supported from Rockstor 4 (openSuSE based). Binaries not published yet, see our Rockstor page|
|OpenMediaVault||Maybe?||Yes?||Based on Debian - arm64 packages are in the OpenMediaVault repository|
Rockstor's Rock-On feature has a curated collection of addons which is a good way of deploying many applications - if you are not familiar with containers or Docker, consider starting there.
If your applicaton does not publish ARM64 containers directly, sources such as LinuxServer.io may be an alternative.
IoT and Home Automation¶
See our ZigBee Home Automation application note for useful information on using ZigBee (and similar technolgies, such as Z-Wave) receivers.
|Mozilla IoT / WebThings||WebThings Appliance VM (especially when using external USB/ZigBee dongles), or container|
|Home Assistant||Dedicated VM (if dealing with USB, as above), or container|
Media Servers (DLNA etc.)¶
More info coming..
Collaboration / Chat / Video¶
|Duplicati||LinuxServer.io container (not all versions from the offical Docker have arm64)|
|UniFi controller||LinuxServer.io container|
|Pi-Hole||Dedicated VM or container (with bridged network)|
|Kismet||Bare metal or VM|
|Suricata||VM / DPAA2 chained (HOWTO pending)|
Cloud and Edge Computing¶
|K3s||VM - we are working on an "appliance" image|
|KubeEdge||Use Debian VMs as base and deploy with Ansible playbook|
If you are interested in running cloud-to-edge stacks such as:
- AWS Greengrass
- Azure IoT Edge
Please contact Traverse - we may be able to assist.
|TensorFlow Lite||Google's Coral AI miniPCIe and M.2 works with VFIO passthrough in muvirt|
Software Defined Radio¶
More information coming...
Works on ARM has facilitated ARM64 support for many development tools and languages
Not on the list?¶
If the software in question works on the Raspberry Pi 3 or 4, there is a good chance it will run on the Ten64 - you might just need to get the correct packages for your chosen distribution.
We appreciate any information on applications not listed here and welcome issues or merge requests in the documentation repository.
