64bit Raspberry Pi OS build with USB-C Ethernet enabled
Ben’s place posts about making a 64-bit Raspberry Pi OS build with USB-C Ethernet enabled.
As a follow up to the 32-bit version I built, using the script I described in my post about building custom SD card images, I have created a 64-bit version based on the Raspberry Pi OS beta.
You can download the 64bit version from here. This is a full Raspberry Pi OS image, not a “lite” version as only full versions are available in beta.
This is a manual build (following these instructions) because at the moment the script won’t work with the 64-bit version, because DockerPi doesn’t support USB devices when emulating 64-bit CPUs. USB is needed to attach the emulated Network Adapter. There are a set of patches for QEMU pending that should enable this.
As soon as the patches become generally available I’ll update the project on GitHub.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
