It is not straight simple. While the processor is capable of arm64, and kernel is arm64 / aarch64, the user-space is armhf!. It can be checked with simple command on M10 terminal: apt-config | less In my case on frieza it returned: APT ""; APT::Architecture "armhf"; APT::Build-Essential ""; APT::Build-Essential:: "build-essential"; APT::Install-...
