Linux AARCH64/ARM64 support...
« on: December 26, 2021, 05:12:27 PM »
Would very much appreciate being able to run Slickedit in Nvidia JetPack 4.x (Ubuntu 18.04 ARM64) environment, which is a widely used platform for embedded & ML development (Jetson TX2, Nano, Xavier, etc.).  RPi4 customers also benefit if running a 64-bit RPi Linux distro.

Sorry for digging up an old thread, but I'd like to also ask if there are any plans for an AARCH64 Linux version of Slickedit?  I'm running Ubuntu 22.04 for ARM in Parallels on an m1 Mac and it would be nice to run SE.

While I'm asking, I've also got Windows 11 for ARM in a VM.  The intel version of SE runs OK, but a native AARCH64 version would be nice.

Linux ARM64 support is at the head of the list of platforms we want to add.  This might make it for v28, but can't promise it just yet.

I notice aarch64 did not make it into the initial v28 beta.  Any chance it will make be included in an update to v28 beta?    Happy to be beta tester.

Probably beta3 unless we hit any big snags with the testing.

We went ahead and did a beta 2 build of SlickEdit for linux aarch64.  It's here if you want to take a look: https://support.slickedit.com/outbound/2800/se_28000002_linux-arm64qt5_beta2.tar.gz

You'll need the v28 beta key from your customer page if you don't already have that. 

Let us know if you run into any problems. We've been testing on a Mac M1 UTM virtual machine, and a RPI4 running Debian Bullseye, and it's been pretty trouble free.
