This is as expected. RealVNC is available on RPi boards only. This is because of the licensing. On RPi boards RealVNC is free for non-commercial use.

running dietpi-software list |grep realvnc should display the software as blocked
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team

hmhmhm. We need then to find a way to better inform the end user as I'm pretty sure that most of us are not aware of the fact that additional information (not part of the UI) are available using the following command:

Code: Select all

dietpi-software list | grep "disabled for rockpro64"
id 51 | =0 | opentyrian: a classic retro game, addictive | +alsa +xserver disabled for rockpro64 (aarch64) | https://dietpi.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?p=45#p45
id 59 | =0 | rpi cam control: web interface & controls for your rpi camera | +webserver +php disabled for rockpro64 (aarch64) | https://dietpi.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?p=48#p48
id 66 | =0 | rpi-monitor: web interface system stats | disabled for rockpro64 (aarch64) | https://dietpi.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?p=1503#p1503
id 69 | =0 | rpi.gpio: gpio interface library for rpi (python) | disabled for rockpro64 (aarch64) | https://dietpi.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?p=1065#p1065
