64 or 32 bit install

Post by Hazcrew »

I'm using a Pi 3 Compute booting from a 500GB SSHD, currently using Dietpi 32 bit and thinking of installing the 64 bit version
Its used for pihole, samba and I will be installing My media for Alexa

Is there any advantage/disadvantage in going 64bit?
I would be interested in your experience.
Thanks in advance

Hi,

There is literally no benefit for running 64bit on your system. Next to this, your media Alexa app is supporting 32 bit on Raspberry Pi only.
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team

Thanks, I suspected as much.
re 64 bit MyMedia, that would have been my next question to them, I see they support Linux 64 bit but Raspberry version was not definitive.

The Linux image is meant for x68 systems only while RPi would be armhf 32bit or arm64 64bit.
