Cannot install Board in Arduino on aarch64 linux

Attempting to install boards (wio, lorawan, …) into arduino from seeedduino source

Seeed boards file:,,

There is no clause for selecting a file for bossac from any source for aarch64/arm64. There is a clear reference for arm-linux-gnueabihf (32 bit arm hard-float) which would execute on aarch64. Also, simple download of bossa-cli and building on aarch64 succeeds but the installer does not refer to external dependencies, so installation of the seeed boards for this file still fails as indicated.

Add a clause for aarch64 in the json to either grab the 32 bit hard-float file or build and upload an aarch64 resource for arduino and then update the json to refer to it.


Caused by: java.lang.Exception: Tool bossac is not available for your operating system.
