Raspberry Pi as GCS

Good day,

I’m creating a custom control box for my lab’s BlueROV2 and was wondering if a Raspberry Pi 4 could be used to run QGroundControl. Their website says they support Linux operating systems so it comes to the drivers the Fathom-X Tether Interface is using. Are they compatible with a Raspberry Pi 4 (or 3B) and if so, is there a guide or post I can use?

No, QGC compiles and runs on x86 processors, and Raspberry Pi is ARM. There is no support for this.

It can be made to work, but it is quite technical, and the information in this post is out of date: https://discuss.ardupilot.org/t/how-to-cross-compile-qgroundcontrol-for-raspberry-pi3/26790

Ok. Thank you for the assistance, Jacob!
