These are often still used and can't be easily replaced due to missing money.
How expensive is a fifth hand 64bit computer these days? Even something a decade old is better than this antiquated early 2000s stuff.

It really won't cost you more than $50 to get something usable, maybe even half-decent.

Working on 28.9.3 now. <crosses fingers>

32 bit also is relevant for current ARM builds, such as for the Pi, which I'm now doing in the repo, so it's not that simple. $50 is also quite a bit of cash in many poorer countries where many people may rely on older computers, so I try to provide 32-bit packages if it doesn't take heroic efforts to do so.

Maybe the Pi 4...but Raspian is still 32-bit.

Also keep in mind that our support for ARM-64 is worse than ARM-32 when it comes to JavaScript JITing. We have no IonMonkey support for ARM-64, for example.

With today's builds for MX Linux on my laptop, I was able to streamline the linker flags a little:

Code: Select all

ac_add_options --enable-optimize="-O2 -w -Wl,--no-keep-memory,--reduce-memory-overhead"
so I'll add those to the OBS builds with the next version

I'll make a note about that in the linux build instructions on the developer site sooner or later.
