Installing 2022 WPILib VS Code on Raspberry Pi 4 Model B

Aloha All!
I just imaged a Raspberry Pi 4 Model B with the Raspberry Pi OS (32 bit: Release 2021-10-30) and immediately attempted to download WPILib 2022. I downloaded the respective tar.gz file from github, and then ran the following commands as shown in the WPILib tutorial:
tar -xf WPILib_Linux-<version>.tar.gz
cd WPILib_Linux-<version>/
Upon running the command ./WPILibInstaller, I got the following error:
bash: ./WPILibInstaller: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what may be causing this? I’m a bit of a linux noob, so any help would be appreciated, thanks!

The Linux installer is only designed for x86-64 platforms. We don’t offer an installer for the Pi.

Is there a feature request for an aarch64 version? Would love to have one too.

I would like to “me too” this request, because it would be game-changing if our programing students could run their development environment on the Raspberry Pi that is already on their Romis.

Peter kindly explained to me (when I asked him last year) that some of the vendor libraries are the sticking point.

So I have this filed under “would be awesome, someday, maybe.”
