I’ve downloaded the dietpi Buster Armv8 image burnt it to a SD card and insterted it into a Pi Zero w2. After the initial setup I get below.
Is aarch64 the right architecture? Shouldn’t it be ARM? It means some packages I want to install don’t appear in the software list (specfically snapcast client).
DietPi v8.5.1 : 07:02 - Tue 06/21/22
- Device model : RPi Zero 2 W (aarch64)
Let me try to answer some of your questions
I guess you mean Bullseye, because we don’t offer Buster anymore.
This basically is the 64bit (aarch64) image
Yes, as you installed 64bit image
They are all ARM based boards Raspberry Pi - Wikipedia
On a Pi Zero w2 you can install 32bit (ARMv6/7) as well as 64bit (ARMv8)
correct, it has been disabled on 64bit systems. You can check it as follow
dietpi-software list | grep "snapcast"
You would need to install a 32bit image in this case.
