I’m setting up my Raspberry Pi’s and there are some packages not available for aarch64-linux that are available for x86_64-linux. So I’m thinking about creating a package.
My specific test example is fahclient which in x86_64-linux is derived from a debian package (thanks to @zimbatm for the x86 nix package) could I “just” change the source files, and edit the destination architecture? I’m making an assumption that x86-linux libraries and basic packages are available for aarch64.
The reason I ask is that the documentation I’ve seen on creating packages still confuses me somewhat, and I thought this might be a fairly easy test case to try out as a beginner, but I’m wary that there could be some very confusing error messages if my assumptions are wrong!
Thanks in advance for any reassurance or gotchas!
