Linux support for aarch64

Hi all,
I’m doing testing with termux, a terminal emulator for your android phone, which has a lot of great capabilities but has a pretty big limitation. The limitation is that packages are limited to aarch64 subsystem so there is a scarce selection of programs that support it. My question is that is there anyway to recomplie subsystem types like recompiling an x64 package to work on aarch64?

Basically, you just need a cross-toolchain for a different architecture. (which isn’t basic at all, but once it’s set up, you’re good)

This article is loosely related:

I don’t know a whole lot about it, but there’s plenty of resources out there.

At worst, have a bump.


like @SgtAwesomesauce said you need a cross compile toolchain. I would recommend going with buildroot because its a simple config to get a cross toolchain that you can use to compile stuff.
