As a recent school project, I tried using the ltsp based fat client (inside a Ubuntu 16.04 chroot) Pinet as a base to run some services such as Retropie,kodi and playing videos from a smb share on the hosting computer.
It uses a RPI3b+ for the client. And although many services run at a satisfying quality of service, the 4GB of ram that is offered with the RPI 4 would make a huge difference.
Here’s the catch.
The pinet “os” or rather rasbian, runs on arm v 7.
The new RPI4 runs on arm v8 if I understand correctly.
Will the RPI 4 be able to boot the chrooted rasbian os image out of the box?
It’s also to my understanding that the new RPI will use a 86x bit structure and as rasbian jessi runs on 32bit structure so I’m feeling some action will have to be made.
Any thoughts or advice ??
There is nothing x86 CPU Architecture about Raspberry Pis, they are ALL ARM CPU Architecture.
The RPi 2B v1.2 and later are ARMv8
The RPi 2B v1.1 is ARMv7
The RPi 1 series and Zero are ARMv6
Raspbian Jessie, Stretch and Buster are all based of Debian ARMHF ARMv7 32bit, compiled to run on ALL models of Raspberry Pi SBC.
The Raspberry Pi 4B requires Raspbian Buster Operating System which as yet PiNET does not support:

Unfortunately the developer gets very little help to completely re-write PiNET, which is a shame.
Raspbian Jessie is end of life, Raspbian Stretch will going forward only receive security updates and patches, therefore as of the 20th June 2019 Raspbian Buster is the RPF / RPT supported ARM32 Operating System.
