I am trying to install Chrome on a 64 bit, see all info below. I also tried this on Ubuntu and get the same thing. Chrome won't install because of the architecture. I am some what knowledgeable with Linux, but I never got into 64bit on a pi. I think it is because my architecture is aarch64 and Chrome needs it to be amd64. Chromeium isn't an option or I wouldn't be in this 64 bit mess. When I ran Ubuntu there was a wget install amd64 but I don't know anything about that. Any help would be appreciated.

Here is the error I am getting:

dpkg: error processing archive google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb 
(--install): package architecture (amd64) does not match system (arm64) 
Errors were encountered while processing:`

    Correct, chrome will not install (or work, even if you could get it installed) because it has been compiled for x86-64. There is no way around that. – goldilocks Jun 6 '19 at 20:28

chrome is designed for ×86 processors only the RPi is an ARM processor

but you can give chromium a shot.

  • A new user pointed out that there are ARM based chromebooks, although that really doesn't make much difference -- there's still no publicly available version that will fly on a pi. – goldilocks Jan 4 at 18:54
