Hi folks,

It'd be super nice to be able to install Symbiosis on arm boxes, but at the moment symbiosis-common relies on ruby-linux-netlink which isn't available for arm. I've only looked briefly, but it could even be the case that it should be set to 'all' rather than 'amd64'.

We do have a raspberry pi "port" of that package. You can try the repo at


and see if that works for you.

Not heavily advertised (or even at all!) mostly because the packages take ages to cross-compile.

If only we had a raspberry pi build machine...

Is there any hope for an updated version now that PI 3 is out? Perhaps a raspberry jessie version?
