I have several RP4s attached to this project. They are asking for work, but aren't getting any. According to the server status page, there is plenty of work available for the metric Prime Tuples sub-project. There is also an app for linux on ARM. So I am not sure what the problem is. The event log does not provide any details.

For what it is worth:
Four RP4s are running 64bit (aarch64) Raspberry Pi OS, and the cc_config.xml for BOINC includes the "<alt_platform>arm-unknown-linux-gnueabihf</alt_platform>" to allow work for 32bit apps. (They are able to get 32bit work from other projects that suppler raspberry pi, no problem)
One RP4 is running the normal 32bit (armv7l) Raspberry Pi OS.

None of them are able to get work.

Thank you for reporting Zombie!
We support armv7l-unknown-linux-gnueabihf architecture.
Do you think it should be changed to arm-unknown-linux-gnueabihf? I do not think the app would work on armv6.

I don't know what it should be. I can only tell you what my raspberry pis are asking for, but not getting any work.

Raspberry Pi 64 bit (aarch64): aarch64-unknown-linux-gnu
Raspberry Pi 32 bit (armv7l): arm-unknown-linux-gnueabihf

Edit: Ah! I see what you are saying. I need to add an additional, different platform string to my cc_config.xml. That worked. Thanks!
