Same problem here. Would like it to work because then I could compute on my Pi 3 B.

I have the same issue, with the same notice, running on a Raspberry Pi 4 B.

Rosetta only runs in 64-bit mode on these. See here:
https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/forum_thread.php?id=13167&postid=93199
https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/forum_thread.php?id=13770&postid=94108

By the way, could anyone here please share what power consumption from the wall of a fully loaded raspberry Pi 4 (or other ARM platform) has without anything plugged in other than power & SD card (i.e., no HDMI, network, USB)?

I had the same problem. As mentioned in the post before, it was due to Raspbian being a 32-bit OS. I installed Debian 10 following this guide: https://pete.akeo.ie/2019/07/installing-debian-arm64-on-raspberry-pi.html and it solved the problem.

Keep in mind that the RPi 3b+ has just 907 MB of RAM. A single R@H task is between 400 and 500 MB. Even if you allow maximum memory usage, you will be able to utilize only two cores at most.

No problem, you can contribute the remaining cores to other disease research projects for example WCG.

Good info on running R@H on ARM SBC https://www.mininodes.com/how-to-run-rosettahome-on-arm-powered-devices/

My headless Pi4 are running 6-10 watts with load averages of 4.0 - 4.2.

hj there,

I got it to work on raspbian too, I had this already installed and it seemed more work to re-image with ubuntu64, the steps are:

- enter arm_64bit=1 in /boot/config.txt
- run sudo rpi-update
- edit /etc/boinc-client/cc_config.xml and add:

<cc_config>
...
<options>
<alt_platform>aarch64-unknown-linux-gnu</alt_platform>
</options>
</cc_config>

Note I have a a PI4 with 4GB of RAM, I think the 1GB and 2 GB versions should in fact not have been produced, considering the memory requirements and the 64 bit version of raspbian only further developed on the PI4 I think trying it on the rpi3 is a dead end.

I tried, but unfortunately my desktop doesn't load with the kernel in 64-bit mode for some reason. Anyone else had this?

I don't know, but perhaps you may ty to increase GPU RAM and some other boot options.

Didn't figure that out, but no matter.

It's now accepting and computing tasks. I've limited it to using one CPU core so I don't run out of RAM for the time being. Depending on usage I might be able to get it up to 2 cores.
