aptitude install gcc-aarch64-linux-gnu
The following NEW packages will be installed:

0 packages upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 6 not upgraded.
Need to get 0 B/2,958 B of archives. After unpacking 19.5 kB will be used.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
gcc-aarch64-linux-gnu : Depends: gcc-5-aarch64-linux-gnu (>= 5.2.1-13cross1) which is a virtual package and is not provided by any available package

The following actions will resolve these dependencies:

Keep the following packages at their current version:
1) gcc-aarch64-linux-gnu [Not Installed]

Accept this solution? [Y/n/q/?]

Raspbian Jessie or stretch ?

Though a full update of the OS should be first step:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo reboot

That is interesting. Raspbian is 32 bit, and it is missing an aarch64 gcc package, it does not make since that a 64 bit package would be required for anything on a 32 bit os.
26-Bit R15 to 32-bit. 16-bit addressing to 24-bit. ARM and 65xx two CPU's that continue on, and are better than ever. Assembly Language forever :) .

As my original post stated.

It's not a newbie error. Tried tagging it in aptitude to verify the problem? I tried on my own machines and again at a friends house. Same problem.

Cheers!

Raspbian is indeed 32 bit, but it should be able to cross-compile/cross assemble for other platforms. The package is in the repository to do this, but at least one dependancy (and perhaps sub-dependancies for that) are unavailable. It's probably just a bug in the build of the repo, but conceivable that Broadcom don't want people finding shortcomings in their v8 implementation and have "applied some influence" (there are possibly a few, but my tests so far indicate they should not have too much to worry about in that respect. :-)

Cheers!
