Image | Kirkwood (armv5tel) devices #2134
I wonder, why it is not possible to install it on my old Zyxel NSA310 NAS (CPU Kirkwood armv5tel).
When I then tried to install DietPi with your installer script, I got the message that DietPi can not be installed on armv5tel devices.
I'm pretty sure that many of these old Kirkwood devices could have a chance of a second life if a DietPi installation would be possible.
Please investigate whether an installation might be possible somehow.
The issue is a bid similar to x32 (VM/Native PC) or EFI32 images. The answer given there, generally applies to ARMv5 as well: #1854 (comment)
But I am still thinking, if we could roughly add x32 and armv5 (or simply any arch) support, at least do the minimal changes to our preparation and architecture estimation scripts, but clearly warn users that it is experimental and might not work.
But this would be clearly low priority, since we generally need to concentrate on issues that affect more users
I think that the Kirkwood hardware is strong enough to support most of the DietPi capabilities/opprtunities.
As per my understanding the aim of DietPi is to bring low ressourced hardware working with up-to-date software solutions.
