I had that error. Since then, I have updated it. Try downloading it again.

Re: piRoot: A way to run x86_64 Debian apps on Raspbian

Beta 2 is here! In this Beta, piRoot adds the ability to choose what OSes you can run. You can choose Debian, or Ubuntu. Ubuntu is being run from an iso, and QEMU. I was going to add ReactOS, but that is coming in a later update. In order to run the other OSes, you need to download the Beta 2 first....

ReactOS keeps bringing up the blue screen of death. Any other operating systems that will run Windows programs?

Would you guys be happier if I switched to pure emulation (Qemu), or just stick with Linux being chroot?

Re: piRoot: A way to run x86_64 Debian, and Raspbian in the terminal.

Alright. I have figured it out. Hippy, you were right. I copied qemu-i386-static over to Debian. Whoops. I fixed that just by installing qemu-user-static, or something else if I wrote that wrong. And here is a video (gif) https://raw.githubusercontent.com/SkywalkerSW5/piRoot/master/deepin-screen-rec...

Re: piRoot: A way to run x86_64 Debian, and Raspbian in the terminal.

I don’t think so because I remember trying it and it didn’t work, but when I get home I will look at the code. I have the .deb on my phone, I will see if there is an app that extracts it and will post source code without OSes.

Re: piRoot: A way to run x86_64 Debian, and Raspbian in the terminal.

Hmm. With the dpkg-deb error I have gotten that. The next update will have a description. I kind of rushed the deb package. Right now I can’t do anything, but for me it worked on Raspbian Buster 64 bit. When I get home, I will try it 32 bit.

Actually I just thought, if you get an error try running sudo apt install debootstrap qemu.

Re: piRoot: A way to run x86_64 Debian, and Raspbian in the terminal.

Sure! The .deb file has the script, and the folder that contains the x86 Debian. The script chroots onto the x86 Debian, and after running the script, the terminal will become that x86 Debian system. If that doesn’t make sense, think it like this. After running the script, all commands after that wi...

Re: piRoot: A way to run x86_64 Debian, and Raspbian in the terminal.

The app is supposed to let you run graphical x86 apps, and the Raspbian mode is supposed to be used as a sandbox for experiments. Yes, the software would be emulated. Some apps would be slow, but it’s not like we are using the pi as the ultimate gaming machine. Unfortunately, some apps I have tried ...

It is supposed to go into the console, and if you chose Debian it should say [email protected] If it doesn't work, try running

Code: Select all

/usr/piRoot/app/piRoot

About the Android question, I don't know for sure if it works on the pi4, but if you use PINN, there is a choice for Android 7.1 to be installed.
