Hello,

today i got one of the Oracles always free Ampere A1 ARM instance and thought it would be a good idea to backup content to my proxmox backup server, sadly it looks like there is no arm64 build of the Proxmox backup client.

Skipping acquire of configured file 'main/binary-arm64/Packages' as repository 'http://download.proxmox.com/debian/pbs-client bullseye InRelease' doesn't support architecture 'arm64

Are there any future plans to provide arm support with at least the proxmox backup client?

There is an arm64/aarch64 (source) package available. It's for Arch Linux (the aarch64 version also), but I don't see an insuperable obstacle why one shouldn't be able to create a package for ie. Debian/Ubuntu.
Arch Linux AUR package of proxmox-backup-client
Hi,

good idea, but i tried a different approach, i installed a debian bullseye container and tried to use the approach from the proxmox developer docs, i failed because there are a lots of dependencies that are not native debian packages and only exist for amd64 "http://download.proxmox.com/debian/devel/dists/bullseye/main/" :(

solved: https://github.com/ayufan/pve-backup-server-dockerfiles

That containers contains current debs for arm64, installed it on the Ampere Altra ARMv8 maschine and it works :)
